This activity kit has so many ways to keep the kids entertained on a long car ride! With great ways to store crayons, markers, pencils, and more, you won’t have to find supplies all over the car that have fallen en route. My daughter takes this everywhere with her. She takes it when I need to meet somewhere and bring her. She brings it to church. She brings it when I am volunteering at the school. It keeps her more than occupied, and she loves it!
This is a cute, 10″ reusable drawing board! They can use erasable markers to color to their hearts desire on 14 pages. Then, get the cloth a little wet, wipe everything clean, and start over! Perfect for little ones.

Fun Travel Games for Kids
4. Continent Race -game about the world!
This game is the Creative Child Awards 2019 Game of the Year winner. Race around the globe to see who can collect the most countries from each continent. They’ll learn about continents, countries, flags, and more! This game makes learning fun! Fun Fact: Continent Race was created by a kid, for kids, during a long hospital stay. He loved geography and wanted to make a game so other kids could grow a love of geography, too!
We enjoy this game and find it to be a fun way to learn about the world!
5. Wood Board Travel Game for kids
This take on Tic-Tac-Toe will remind the kids of their day at the beach! Using weathered seashells shapes in place of X and 0, this game can be taken anywhere! Made of wood and resin. Approximately 9″x9″
Or if camping and mountains are more your child’s style, check out the Bear Decorative Wooden Board Game
We have this one and the kids think it’s really fun. I love it as well because it opens up a conversation about how others may have different traditions and cultures, but how they are all kids just like them! We love studying cultures and other countries (check out our Around the World posts!), so this puzzle was a natural fit for us!
This game is quickly gaining popularity. This game is both fun and educational. The whole family can play and enjoy competing for Park Cards and collecting trail stones. Everyone will learn fun facts as well as enjoy beautiful photos from each park. With over 1,000 5-star reviews, this game should be on everyone’s list!
