15 Things To Entertain Your Kids On A Long Plane Ride Or Road Trip

Summer is here.  Many of you may be taking long road trips this summer like to the Beach, Grand Canyon or Disney.  Others may be flying.  If you have kids you know that long trips can be hard to keep those kids from complaining and occupied.   We are headed on a 10 hour plane ride this summer.   Wish me luck.  To combat the boredom that comes with a long trip trapped in a car or plane here are 15 surprise things I have packed to entertain my kids.   Bonus: Most of these items  mykids have are new so the surprise factor is also a Mom Win!  I plan on packing them in their carry ons with out them knowing.

1) Fidget Spinner - Okay my kid already has one of these but they are still fun and great to play with while sitting down.

2) A Mini Rubix Cube - This one is key chain size.   We can see if my kids can get this one back to solid colors on all sides. 

3) Neck Travel Pillows - These cute ones I got off Amazon. 

4) Color Wonder markers and Sheets - These are great because you do not need to have so many markers. These clear markers make all the colors on the special pages. 

5) New Crayons - These can be used everywhere and go in my purse for restaurants. 

6) Play - Doh - This can be a little messy but keep the plastic forks or spoons you get at the airport and your kids can play with these on their seat back table.

7) Tape Activity Book - This one we have never used before but looks cool.   You cut tape and add it to the pictures int he book to decorate it.

8) Silly Putty - Much like thinking putty and a little like play doh this will not dry out. 

9) Wikki Stix - These molding stix are great to make mini doodles / creations. 


10) Water Wow - These are going to be for my Kindergartner - The pen you fill with water and they can practice writing letters and numbers on the pages.  The paper dries and then can be reused.  The pen is refillable with water. 

11) Design Your Own Bracelets - Okay by now you know I have girls but I am sure there is something else similar for boys. 

12) Mad Libs - What kids doesn't love making up funny stories.  I mean how many times can you use poop as a noun. 

13) Ziggy Pasta - I got this from a Autistic Toy website but I thought the toy looks interesting and fun for all kids.  It is stretchy and sticky. 

14) Stretchy Mice and Cheese - You pull and stretch the cheese and get the mice in the holes. I got this toy from the same website at the pasta.  

15) Glitter Goo - Slime need I say more.  Kids love slim. 

When I return from my trip I will update you on which toys worked the best.  But for now I hope you enjoy the list.
