    The best thing I ever took on the airplane for my then 2 yr old was a box of band-aids and her baby doll. She was so quietly occupied caring for her baby. I also let her pretend with things like a tube of orajel, neosporin, etc. out of my travel first aid kit.

    Just finished up a container of wipes and knew I couldn’t throw it out…because it might turn into something fun! After seeing your post on making it into a “song box” for the car or a crayon/treasure box…I am so glad I didn’t throw it out!! Thanks

    Love these ideas, especially the cookie pan! I made a travel fun book that I blogged about a few weeks ago that did a great job of entertaining Sweetpea during our trip to Florida this year. The original idea was from the Frugal Family Fun Blog. You can check out our version here, if interested:

    I loved the writing board from Katie’s Nesting Spot.

    We make a trek across the country yearly with three kiddos three and under. I’ve mentioned over 40 tips that have helped us survive our travels, including activities like car art activities, how to make your own “I Spy Jar” and other sanity tips.
