For all you traveling families this holiday season, this week we’ve been sharing some tips and activities on the Melissa & Doug blog to help keep the kids entertained (and you sane!) while on the road. In case you missed any of this week’s Travel posts, here’s a quick roundup! To add to these ideas, or share your food play photos, please e-mail us: we’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions!
We love the skills letter-writing can build in children, including spelling practice, storytelling, imaginative play, and more. The holidays are a perfect time to build this skill as many families hit the road! This post shares three letter-writing activities for your little travelers using stamps, a pretend mailbox, and a child’s imagination!
In this post, we share five simple strategies for equipping your kids with some entertainment and activities while traveling, including:
- Creating a sensory kit
- Practicing packing (in fun ways!)
- Daytime and nighttime travel games, and
- Writing postcards
Our traveling with kids board is packed with entertaining activities, arts & crafts, and games to keep kids occupied while on the go. Check it out for some inspiration!
