    Kids Backseat Organizer and Travel Desk – This is another version of the travel desk but allows a bit more organization as well.


    The Everything Kids Travel Book – You can find activity book on just about any subject. We love workbooks because the kids can have fun and get some learning in at the same time.


    Kids Kindle Fire – Hear me out on this one. We do have kindles for the kids but think about it. We have limited space and bringing out homeschool stash of books wasn’t an option, so we converted them all to ebooks. PLUS with the Kindles, each kid has a FreeTime account, and I can control exactly what books they can read, what games they can play, and what videos they can watch. On top of I can also control how much time they have to spend reading before they can play games, what times they are allowed to be on the tablets and more!


    Travel License Plate Game – I loved playing this games on car trips growing up, this is just a more advanced version!
