I’m sure many of you are traveling in the car or on a plane this holiday season. I have a few plane rides ahead of me and I’m always looking for small, light and interesting toys for my 2-year-old to play with. These are a few of my favorites to purchase for your travels (or to give as gifts).
The Tegu blocks are the hottest thing around. Magnetic, wooden, eco-friendly and even adult friendly. This pouch easily fits in your purse or diaper bag for a creative toy on the go.
Encourage your child to color without the worry of markers getting over your relative’s or family’s sofa. This is also great for the plane as you won’t get markers all over yourself either!
This set includes 50 reusable stickers which the children can create stories on a single board scene. We take these with us to dinner all the time.
This game is too old for my son, but my nieces and nephews love it.
This set includes 4 bingo pads with 20 play pages each. This reminds me of the I-Spy games I used to play as a kid before there were TVs in cars and iPhones.
For the older children in your family, a high speed version of portable scrabble for the whole family (at least those who can spell).
And don’t forget a little something for mom, grandma, or whomever you are visiting as a hostess gift. Barefoot Contessa’s newest book “How Easy is That“, is a must-have staple in any kitchen. Bring some home-made snacks with you to avoid that nasty airplane truck stop food.
