"Are we there yet?" summer travel toys

Summer is here and vacations are planned, so you are likely to hear these words uttered more than once as you travel.

Tips for Stress-Free Travel with Kids

Here are 5 good tips for parents to keep in mind whether traveling by car, plane, train or ship this summer:

1. Allow more time than usual. Even the best laid plans can hit a snafu, so allow extra time to pack up and get where you are going.

2. Pack an activity bag. Bring lots of things to do. A short drive can feel like an eternity to a child. Don't forget to pack lots of snacks (too much is better than too little) and some relaxing music to play when things get rowdy. Take a look at the PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT above for some Discovery Toys products that will work great on your trip! And check out my recommendations listed below.

3. Get a good nights sleep. A well rested child is a happy child.

4. Pack an emergency kit. Include medications and ointments you might need, as well as baby wipes. Throw in a small sized bucket and a towel in case of motion sickness.

5. Relax and have fun! You're on vacation, enjoy yourself! Relax, slow down, and savor the moment.
