10. Window Art
Some kids are easy to please, and if they can reach your windows, then maybe making some scenery with gel window clings will do the trick. You can often find them at dollar stores, and most definitely on Amazon. These are MUCH better than scraping stickers off your windows that have baked in the sun, and your kids can have multiple packs to create different scenes and them occupied.
11. Stickers and Sticker Pad
There’s nothing like a fresh sticker book and a new pack of stickers to keep a kid happy. The great thing about sticker pads like the Melissa & Doug one listed above is it’s lap-sized and also reusable! There are plenty of pages to use and you won’t have to constantly turn around to hand out more sheets of paper! They are very affordable and perfect for summer trips. No worrying about melted crayons for this activity!
12. Buckle & Clip Toy
If you have a wee one traveling with you, then you’ll need an age appropriate activity just for them. Sometimes the most simple concept toys are the ones that keep your kids entertained the longest. This toy is a homemade one, made from simple plastic buckles. Your young kids will enjoy all the colors and the buckles to snap and chew on. You need to have some basic sewing skills, but its worth if for this entertaining toy!
