1. Amazon Fire Kids Edition Tablet
An Amazon Fire Kids Edition Tablet keeps my kids entertained on long flights and road trips. There are age filters so that kiddos will only see age appropriate content and also comes in a kid-proof case (in different colors) so you don’t have to worry about it being dropped or damaged.
Headphones are a must when traveling with kids so that they can watch shows and play games on their tablet without bothering anyone else. My kids both have a pair of these headphones. These headphones are a more affordable option and also limit the volume to protect your child’s hearing. These CozyPhones are more comfortable and make it easier for your child to sleep while traveling.
My kids loved using these backpacks when they were toddlers. Not only are Skip Hop Toddler backpacks cute but your kids can carry their travel essentials themselves.
4. Map Puzzles
Puzzles are not only fun for kids but they are also help them develop various skills. Map puzzles are a great way for kids to learn about world geography while working on their puzzle skills. This world map puzzle is marketed for kids from ages 5-9 but my 4 year old daughter loves it.
This is a great way for kids to create memories of their trip. There are journals for different ages, this travel journal is great for younger kids (ages 3-6).
My kids loves using my phone, camera or any tech gadget really. This camera will keep your kid occupied during your trips and keep him from using (and breaking) your expensive camera. Another good option is this camera with video recorder.
7. Luggage Tags
Fun luggage tags like this Disney luggage tag are great travel stocking stuffers for kids.
A cute passport holder for kids like this one is a great stocking stuffer for kids that travel internationally. You can gift them a passport cover and luggage tag set.
9. National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of the World
Young kids can learn about the world with this National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of the World (for ages 3 to 6) or this National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of Where (for ages 4 to 8).
10. Travel Toys
Toddlers and younger kids will enjoy these travel toys.
11. Scooter Luggage
Scootie Luggage is a fun gift for young kids. If your kids like Paw Patrol like mine do they might like this one.
12. Little Passports Monthly Subscription
A travel subscription box for kids like Little Passports Monthly Subscription is a great gift for kids of different ages. Each month, kids receive a package filled with fun and educational toys, activities and souvenirs designed to spark a child’s curiosity and inspire them to learn about the world.
There are different subscriptions available depending on your child’s age: Early Explorers (Ages 3-5), World Edition (Ages 6-10), or USA Edition (Ages 7-12).
13. Atlas Crate
Atlas Crate are geography subscription boxes for kids (ages 6-11) designed to help your child develop an appreciation for other world cultures through immersive, hands-on STEAM activities.
14. Backpack The World Subscription Box
Backpack The World offers subscription based geography and travel kits for kids 9-15. They feature a new country every month and include a newletter with cultural, political, geographic and economic information, maps, a selected recipe, stickers, puzzles, and other activities and a backpack to store everything.
If your kids enjoy cooking (like mine do) they will enjoy these eat2explore country exploration cooking kits for families. They are a fun way for families to explore the world in their kitchen by cooking, learning and dining together. The recommended age for their explore box is 5 years old or older.
