When you travel with children you might think you need to pack a whole lot of toys. Fear not, traveling lightly is not something you have to stop doing!
We have brought with us the following items on our travels:
- one or two books
- crayons and a block of paper
- downloaded games/videos for tablet/phone
Other that that we have used in-flight magazines, food, songs and exploring as entertainment for the trip.
When we get to the destination we have many times purchased beach toys, such as buckets and spades, paddling pools and inflatable toys. These usually cost next to nothing, especially in developing countries, and can be donated to local children, clubs or holiday homes when you go home again.
