There’s nothing more stressful than the neverending “Are we there yet?” or “How much longer do we have to wait?” coming from your kids on a trip. Whether you’re going on a vacation or visiting family over the holidays you’re going to want to have these items checked off your list of Must Have Travel Essentials For Kids of All Ages to ensure they will stay cool, calm and collected until you reach your destinations!

• Snacks & Drinks – any kind of non-smelly, non-messy finger foods and usually non-pourable drinks juice, water, pop…anything pre-poured into a bottle with a lid or a sippy cup.
• Mobile or Tablet Device – these are great for games, reading and anything else you don’t need wifi for like the shows you can now download and take with you on Netflix. Check out the “Available to Download” menu for inspiration or have a look at a few of our favourites!

• Headphones – nobody wants to hear what the kids are watching or playing, especially when there are multiple kids on devices.
• Fidget Spinners – or something they can quietly play with, if a child’s hands and mind are busy the time should pass fast for them.
