Must-Have Travel Essentials for Children

Must-Have Travel Essentials for Children
Spring is here and it's time to sit back, relax, and try to survive traveling with children. Luckily, we have compiled a list of travel apps and travel accessories that are helpful for parents and entertaining for kids. Whether flying long distance or taking a road trip, be sure to download and pack the items below:

Roadtrip Bingo
iOS + Android (free)
Roadtrip Bingo allows kids to check off things they spot while on a trip. Similar to the old licence plate spotting game, this app also includes options for airplane travel as well.

FamilyTime Dashboard
iOS + Android (free)
Kids have a tendency to wander off. Better to be safe than sorry, and download FamilyTime Dashboard. Prior to leaving the house, install the app on your mobile device and their phones or tablets. The app safely monitors your child’s location, as well as any Internet or smartphone activity.

iOS (free)
Rather than trusting on an unreliable restaurant reviews in unfamiliar cities, GetBeen to see your friend’s restaurant, hotel, and amusement kid-friendly suggestions on all of your travels! Using GetBeen you can explore what’s nearby, and discover what your friends recommend, and share your experiences. No more frantic Facebook statuses asking for restaurant recommendations in the middle of nowhere, with GetBeen you'd have your friends opinions at your fingertips.

TravelOn Hand Soap Sheets
These pocket-sized biodegradable sheets are a must-have when traveling with children. Easier to carry than a bar of soap, these paper-thin soap sheets dissolve almost instantly in water, giving you a handful of cleansing suds anywhere. TSA compliant and biodegradable, the palm-size container holds 50 sheets.

Here WeGo
iOS + Android (free)
Toddlers can be the most impatient road trip buddies ever. Avoid hearing the common phrase “are we there yet” by downloading Here WeGo. Rather than wasting all your data getting directions to your travel destination, this app provides detailed turn-by-turn directions for over 100 different countries that you can download and access offline, making it a great app to help avoid data fees. Here WeGo also offers directions for various forms of transportation, including car, bike or public transportation and updates prices, traffic conditions, where to park, for any drive.

Activity Bags
Another great idea is to make your own child-theme'd activity bag that is filled with coloring books, colored pencils, crayons, word search puzzles, crossword puzzles for kids, handheld electronic games, books, writing paper, dry erase board (tic, tac, toe and hangman games) and of course...non-messy snacks!
