I found the kid travel gear that you won’t want to be without this Memorial Day. Family vacations can be great, but traveling with young children can also be stressful for kids and parents alike. Hit the road with a smile with some sanity-saving essentials in-tow. Here are a few suggestions and game ideas to help make Memorial Day road trips a little more enjoyable. These are great bon voyage gifts for friends or family who are heading out for the long weekend. Or, scoop them up for your own family adventure!

1. When traveling with kids the most important part in keeping kids happy is the snack selection. Bring things that both you and your children will approve of.

2. 50 Travel Games and Activities is a deck of colorful cards packed with simple games, activities and puzzles that will surely keep your kids entertained in the car. $9.99

3. Klutz Trip-tivities Pad is filled with puzzles, brain teasers, word games and doodle pages. This is the perfect activities book for any creative kid. $12.00

4. Crayola Color Wonder is a Go Tiny Tube with a roll of tear-off, mess-free activity sheets inside. The color wonder markers store neatly inside the tube and the best part is that color will only show up on the color wonder paper. Parents do not need to worry about their kids destroying the backseat of the car with this activity! $8.99

5. For kids who tend to get car sick, a simple movie is the perfect distraction on a long road trip. Potterybarn kids Boys’ & Girls’ DVD Player & Case are adorable and easy for kids to use on their own. $159.00
