Kids make life wonderful and more chaotic all at the same time. While some would say travel with kids is no fun, I heartily disagree. Tiny humans travel with their own magic and I for one can’t live without it. Here are a few items from Amazon to make your next trip with a toddler less stressful. I’ve included a mix of things for car and plane travel. Bon voyage!

1. Water Wow Coloring Boards
We’re starting off strong. I cannot say enough good things about these Water Wow coloring boards. We have one in the car, the art basket, the diaper bag… you name it. Kids can color using just water in the pen and when the boards dry out they can color again. It’s such a simple idea and keeps toddlers entertained without the mess.
2. Neck Pillow
I don’t like looking in the rearview mirror to see my sleeping kiddo with her head hanging down. This neck pillow is just the right size for toddlers. It also comes in with a carrying case.
3. Bluetooth Headphones
These headphones hold a charge for 20 hours when wireless, are foldable, and have a kid safe max volume.
4. Hand Sanitizer and Sanitizing Wipes
Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes are no brainers for travel in the post-COVID world. I like the travel pack of Lysol wipes because they’re thinner so they don’t take up as much space.
5. First Aid Kit
I chose this particular kit because it’s compact but is fully stocked with bandages, antibiotic ointment, tweezers, and hydrocortisone cream.
6. Kids Kindle Fire
This Kindle comes with a kid-proof case, a 1 year subscription to Amazon Kids, and an amazing 2 year warranty. This is a sanity saver for long trips.
7. Spill Proof Cup
We’ve been through 5 different kinds of cups and these are the best. They are stainless steel, spill proof, and the parts are the easiest to clean. Plus, the top covers the straw so it’s more sanitary.
8. Stain Remover Wipes
I have the spray version of Messy Eater Stain Treater in the laundry room and it works wonders. These wipes are perfect for travel to avoid set in stains.
9. Snack Spinner
I’m not going to lie… I considered buying a snack spinner for myself. I especially like this for travel because you can pack multiple different options. Plus, kids love pressing the button to make it spin.
10. Busy Book
The Busy Book gets a lot of play time in our house as well as when we travel. There are pages for shapes, letters, colors, weather, and space to name a few. The pieces come on and off with Velcro that is super easy to apply and each page’s pieces have their own bag to keep everything organized.
11. Pouch Tops
There is a learning curve with pouches and these spill proof pouch tops are a must-have item. It’s so convenient to pop on a top and hand it over knowing there won’t be any catastrophic accidents.
12. Car Seat Travel Tray
Don’t just take my word for it. Over 14,000 people can’t be wrong. The best selling car seat travel tray is perfect for your next trip. It has a dry erase board, a tablet holder, and side pockets for toys and snacks.
I hope this post encourages you to rethink travel with toddlers. A few simple items can make a trip go more smoothly and help you enjoy your time together. If you have anything to add then please send it my way! As always, thanks for reading and sharing.
