I love feedback in my comments!Summer Travel Series: Traveling with Bigger Kids (5-8 years)
Thank you for checking in with our last installment of our Summer Travel Series! We have had a great time reviewing all the best gear for traveling with all different age groups. Be aware that most of the products listed in these posts can be used just as well in the car as on the plane.
Your child may be too big to ride on Trunki
now, but with a comfortable shoulder carry strap attached, your bigger kid can sling Trunki through the airport or continue to roll it along behind them, giving their Hugga Pet Pillow
For your older child, pack Trunki with a Reading Light
. Melissa and Doug makes a nice selection of stencil sets
with non rolling crayons that are perfect for the plane or the car. Packing is half the fun, so let your older child choose which toys to bring along. Don't forget to pack plenty of snacks for your kiddo in Itzy Ritzy Reusable Snack Bags
If your older child is still under 44 lbs, consider still taking along a Kids Fly Safe Cares Restraint
to supplement the seatbelt on the plane.
When traveling with both older kids and babies, I recommend Hold on Handles
that attach to your stroller. Kids can pull Trunki with one hand and hold onto the handle in a busy airport without worry. I can actually manage my 18 month old son, three year old niece, and five year old nephew at Disneyland by myself for a couple of hours with this set up! They like that they have their very own handle and that their hands don't get sweaty holding mine all day. When it is time to get in line for a ride, I detach the hold on handles from the stroller and attach them to my backpack. They work like a charm! Thanks so much for reading along with our Summer Travel Series and thanks for shopping at Goore’s for Babies to Teens
