What's In My Child's Travel Bag



We go on a couple of holidays or short breaks away a couple of times a year. Our next adventure is going abroad to Majorca again so I thought I would put together a post all about what I'll be packing in Noah's flight bag. I struggle with boredom in the airport and on the flight so I always make sure to pack lots of different things to keep a four year old occupied and happy on our journey! 


Lots of snacks:
First of all, and most importantly it has to be snacks! I've packed a variety of Noah's favourites; Goodies fruit and oat bars, Goodies raisins, Fruit Bowl blackcurrant yogurt flakes, Little Dish Go Go's and Bear Paws fruit shapes. On the morning we leave I will also pack some savoury snacks like cheese sticks, crackers and a flask of water.


Activity bundle
:

Next we have an activity bundle and a soft toy. A sticker book, find and seek book, soft toy and lotto mini game. The sticker book cost next to nothing and just had to be included in our bag as stickers are always a hit with Noah. The Things to Spot book is something I hope Noah will enjoy to do whilst on the plane as he loves anything like that. The Little Bus Lotto game is one of the many Orchard Toy games that we love and the Little Bus Lotto will be a game that Noah can enjoy both at home and on the go. Lastly, we have the little soft toy which Noah has recently become very fond of and has named Mouse? Lucky Mouse gets a free trip to Majorca! 


Thomas & Friends goodies:
Then we have a bunch of Thomas & Friends goodies; a sticker activity book, carry along colouring set and mini train surprise bags. I won the sticker book and carry along set a while back but luckily discovered them this week when sorting the house! I picked up a couple of Thomas & Friends Mini's too because Noah like most toddlers is obsessed with surprise eggs and blind bags so I know they'll keep him occupied on the flight. 


Small toys:
As you can see I'm trying to cover all bases by packing everything that I know Noah plays with often so if he gets bored with one thing we can easily switch to something else. I've packed four of his favourite cars, a small Buzz Lightyear and a couple of different surprise bags.


Noah's prized possession
Now we couldn't travel anywhere without Noah's favourite thing in the whole wide world, his Kiki. He will be packed in his hand luggage to be at hand for snuggle time and I so hope we don't lose him while we are abroad! And if all this fails I will have my iPad at the ready!

What do you like to pack in your child's travel bag?

  8. I think you've got it pretty much sorted, I think possibly the most important thing is the item they find comforting as it's a strange situation!

    1. Totally. We aren't going to make it a big deal as we are a little apprehensive about how he will fit it when we are taking off. Hope he will be okay!

  18. Most of the components in your computer are electronic devices. They don't fail with time like a mechanical device such as a video editing software free. But your hard drive is one of the few mechanical devices used in modern computing, and as such, it's destined to die eventually. I'm having a big problem with my Lacie NAS 1TB drive, which doesn't seem to read any files at all - I can't even get a connection to it.

  25. I always wrap things in wrapping paper adds to the fun. Some are from home, some are from charity shop. I wrap books colouring pens, sticker books, then i hand them out as and when needed. Makes it more exciting

  26. The activity bundle is a really good idea and a few little treats - Worthwhile collecting a few odds and ends to take when you are going on an outing or even just when out shopping. A prepackaged in-expensive little parcel produced from your bag may give you chance to relax and enjoy a coffee in peace!
