Heading off on holiday this summer? Whether you’re taking a flight, hopping on a train or having a road trip, happy children having fun makes the journey speed by. We’ve pulled together a few ideas of what to take with you (and when you arrive) from books and small toys to card games, puzzles and fidgets. Don’t forget to take those all-important drinks and snacks too.
While flying can be the quickest way to get to a destination, there’s always some waiting around prior to departure. Always allow extra time with kids, keep them busy and have snacks handy just in case. Surprising them with a new gift or toy is a great way to occupy children while you’re checking in, going through security and waiting at the gate. Once on the plane, there are plenty of ways to keep them having fun. Even simple activities like sticking googly eyes or moustaches on each other can make for hilarious fun!

Trains are a great way to get about and a popular mode of transport for families both in the UK or overseas. It can be a calmer way to travel than being at the airport as one you’re on the train, those holiday adventures have begun! Fantastic if you can grab an area with a table for the kids to spread out but if not small toys are a great addition to sight seeing throughout the journey.

Travelling by car is brilliant as it means you can bring everything you need on your travels with you. If you’re driving some distance, it’s worthwhile seeing where you might stop along the way. Destinations with green space or play equipment can make such a difference and give the drivers a rest. Games that involve looking out of the window or spotting what’s around them are a great way to ensure they don’t get queasy. Card games and fidget toys are great as they don’t need to look down and having alternatives for when you stop is always handy.
