Secret for Traveling with Toddlers

Are you getting ready for a Spring Break trip?


Are you nervous about spending hours in a car or plane with your toddler or preschooler?


Are you dreading the "Are we there yet?" question?


While screens can be a life saver in times like this, I stumbled upon a fun, non-screen idea when our kids were little that I thought I would share with you!


It's hard for a toddler to understand how far they are traveling or how long they'll be in the car or plane. Instead of packing a bag full of fun activities for your child to choose from during your trip, try this tip to help your little one break the trip up into smaller segments.


Before our trip, I would head to the store and buy several small items, wrap them and hand one out every hour of our trip. This gave our kiddos something to look forward to and also gave them something new for the next leg of our trip.


We have many options at Mezanmi that are easy to pack. Stop in before you head out!
