  1. There’s a fantastic game called “kick, pull, scream” that requires minimal supplies. Simply go to a hobby store and find some “bullseye” stickers – that’s all! They’re easy to pack – which is great for Dad.
    Once on board, apply the stickers to various spots on the seatback in front of the child and explain the game. Kick each bullseye, pull on the seat, and scream. The goal is to do this as often and as fast as possible.
    This will keep the child occupied for hours!

  2. In addition to the Pack n Play tip I presented in the Mothers Day contest (shameless plug), I submit a Father’s Day tip for traveling with children.
    At the end of the day, especially a long day, before setting off to your final destination in a car , plane, limo or train, change your child into his or her sleeping attire. You won’t gave to disturb or disrupt their sleep as you put them to bed.

  3. I suggest bringing a nintendo ds or another type of personal game console for each child. This is important. Expecting them to share may cause arguments en route!

  4. I would say that if you can travel by car – do so at night so they will be sleeping most of the time. Bring lots of snacks, drinks and games. Be prepared for bathroom stops. Have them start a travel diary if they are old enough – it will keep them occupied in the car – hard to write and fight at the same time.

  5. bring snacks and drinks, games and books, and be prepared to to stop frequently (if traveling by car) for toilet break or just stretching the legs
