C is for Coloring Books For Travel

You may be wondering how coloring books relate to travel, but in our world they totally relate. They may be, in my opinion, the most versatile supply you can bring for your children when you travel. They provide hours of entertainment, they are an alternative to electronics, they are a quiet activity for kids to do at a restaurant, they fit easily into most bags.

And, we’ve discovered, they are a great way to teach your kids about travel before you actually go, if you get coloring books that are geared to whatever destination you are heading to.

There are printable coloring sheets, like these:

Don’t get me wrong, we love our ipads, and they are definitely a lifesaver, especially on long flights. But you can’t go wrong throwing in some crayons and a coloring book and giving your kids an easy, quiet travel toy!
