The easiest way to keep kids entertained when you're traveling

Yesterday, we featured a brilliant travel tip/idea from the late Luke Perry that involved balloons. It reminded me of something that Natalie and I do when we travel with our toddler that I’ve never run as a tip: We bring a few balloons in our bags and blow them up to entertain Jack. It works like a charm. Balloons must be the cheapest (here’s a link to balloons on Amazon) and most packable way to keep kids entertained when you’re traveling—and as I learned reading the Luke Perry story, you never know when they’ll come in handy.

It’s important to note that a deflated or popped balloon is a choking hazard, so make sure you or another adult is present when your toddler is playing with a balloon.
