While we spent most of our vacation dealing with three very sick kids, I did learn a great deal about traveling with toddlers. I will spend the next couple weeks sharing all of my tips and tricks I learned along the way. I’d love to hear all of your tips as well!
When we finally made the decision to be road tripping for our vacation, I immediately started brainstorming how I was going to keep my young girls entertained in the car. And not only in the car, but aslo at the houses and hotels we would be staying at. And of course, it had to be organized!
In comes, the activity bag!
Inside this bag I packed a lot of little activity bags for the girls! Most of everything we already had stashed away from tot school. All three girls (ages 11 months – 3.5 years) were able to stay pretty busy with these activities! Take a peek!

- Post-it notes

Also included in our activity bag was the restaurant bag, which I put in our diaper backpack when we were out to eat. The various activities kept the girls entertained while we waited for our food.
Some of these items were taken from my transportation activity box I made for the girls when I was pregnant with Hayleigh.
Another integral part of our activity bag was the travel binder! Which I will be sharing with you tomorrow! So make sure to check back then!
