I know a lot of families were traveling this Thanksgiving holiday and many will again for Christmas.  Here are some fun ideas to get your kids there with less fuss and they’re toys they can continue to enjoy once you reach your destination.  All of the items are portable, easy to carry, don’t take up a lot of room in the suitcase, backpack, or carry-on bag and make for hours of endless and creative and imaginative play.  And the best part?  No batteries!  That also means no blips, beeps, or annoying music!  Just pure, clean, brain-stretching fun.

Cars 2 themed funI didn’t travel this holiday but my son’s girlfriend’s family did so I passed on these great toys for them to try out.  Their mom is an advocate of toys that are wholesome, so these were a great fit. The kids enjoyed the Cars 2 Super Stationary Set, an arts & crafts kit which comes with a huge collection of coloring crayons, markers, pads, and more themed with their favorite characters from the blockbuster movie.  They also received a fun Cars 2 figurine diecast car to aid in their imaginative play and the Cars 2 movie soundtrack to enjoy as well.  With fun and free activity sheets that can be downloaded from the Disney Family Fun site they were ready for a car trip or a trip to the kitchen table for loads of fun, lots of choices, and good clean activites.

An what did the kids think?  They loved all the choices and there was plenty to share between the two of them.  So many creative works of art have been produced and will continue to be produced with this huge kit.
