A Travel Kit
The best idea is to create a travel kit for your child. In the travel bag include the "necessary" items such as pens, pencils, crayons, travel games and writing paper. These are important for a child to stay entertained on a trip. However, other items are necessary to spice up a trip. The best idea is to find small and inexpensive items with a lot of play value. Don't spend a fortune! Allow your child to help decide what kind of items he/she would like in the tote bag, but be sure that he/she does not decide everything, because the element of surprise will keep him/her from getting bored.
Here are some ideas:
Wrap the items you bring with on the trip - just using inexpensive wrapping paper or placing the items in lunch sack bags creates interest. An item is always more fun if the child doesn't know what it is ahead of time. I suggest giving your child a new surprise every 30 minutes - 1 hour (30 minutes for ages 3-5, and 1 hour for ages 5 and over).
