Does your family do a lot of traveling around the holidays? This week on the Melissa & Doug blog, we’ll be talking all about the ways families play when they’re traveling (or just pretending to travel). We’ll share our top picks for travel games, best packing strategies (start with a great kids’ suitcase!), and special posts all about taking fun on the road.
There’s nothing more iconic than the family trip. It’s the subject of movies, songs, and countless family albums, and everybody knows the refrain: Are we there yet? It’s also a great opportunity to give your kids a new perspective on the world they live in, pay a visit to far-flung relatives, and (our favorite!) get creative with the way you play!
All week long, we invite you to join us here to share ideas: Add to the comments with your best play ideas. Let us know your best tip for (relatively) peaceful travel with kids. And chime in with your answer to that all-important kids’ travel question: What’s the one toy or game you can’t leave home without?
You can send your family-travel photos to us through Facebook, too–we may share your picture!
