Are you traveling with children this holiday season? Long hours of travel time can get tedious for the whole family. This year, come prepared. Here are some entertaining travel toys for kids of all ages. Pair them up with snacks and occasional stops along the way, and you’ll be at your destination before you know it.

Keep art supplies handy with a travel drawing case like this one by jennieingram. Make sure you include a full pad of paper so your little artists can draw to their hearts content.

b2j2fitz found some great tins and made a magnetic memory game for a long trip.
An I Spy bag will keep kids (and maybe even adults!) entertained for hours. It comes complete with a laminated card showing pictures of what to find. lil_abi includes a step-by-step tutorial for making this great toy.
It’s always fun to search of out of state license plates on the interstate. Take along a travel bingo game, like this one from Misselthwaite. For added fun, include additional cards with other things found on the highway: roadsigns, silos, radio towers, etc.
b2j2fitz‘s kids love this magnetic travel tray. Not only is it useful at snack time, it’s outfitted with a dry erase surface. Now the tray is perfect for drawing, snacking, and magnetic play!
