We are gearing up for a 10-day excursion with all of the kids: In addition to two long-ish flights, we will be doing a serious amount of driving once we arrive in the Northeast (in order to maximize our time in this part of the country!). I’ve been looking for snacks and activities for my children, ages 7 (boy), 3.5 (girl), and 15 months (girl), but have been disappointed in the selection. Part of me is tempted to be quite minimalist in the “props” that we travel with, and simply pack a few books and some granola bars. The other part of me is tempted to go all out and buy the Color Wonder books and an assortment of new and exciting snacks. Going minimalist at church has worked for us, so maybe it will work for travel as well?
Help me out here, moms and dads!
