We have a few trips planned this year with our kids. As they are getting older, my Little Man is almost three, traveling is getting a little easier for us. Now that my Princess is in school, we can’t up and leave as easily as we did before when she was homeschooled. So this summer we have three trips already planned to San Diego, California, Eastern Washington and Lincoln City, Oregon. It looks like we will be adding Tofino, British Columbia to our summer travel list as well.
With our family travel this summer, I love getting new products and ideas to make travel time easier and fun for the kids. I wanted to share with you great ideas and products that can help you with your family travel this year too.
First, this is not a new one to me, but the way it is packaged? Genius! My daughter and I have found one more thing to bond over and get excited about. Where’s Waldo? The Totally Essential Travel Collection is a compact compilation featuring all seven of Waldo’s renowned excursions:
- Where’s Waldo?
- Where’s Waldo Now?
- Where’s Waldo? The Fantastic Journey
- Where’s Waldo? The Wonder Book
- Where’s Waldo? In Hollywood
- Where’s Waldo? The Great Picture Hunt!
- Where’s Waldo? The Incredible Paper Chase
My daughter has already added this book to her church busy bag. She loves it! We’ve had adults and kids at church get involved in finding Waldo as well. The pictures are a lot smaller, the writing is small as well. But both of our eyes are still great — we can find Waldo, friends, and objects just as easily as in the bigger books. Seriously, this book is so awesome. And the price? You can’t beat it.

(Planning Family Travel? Here are the Must Haves!) I imagine that it’s hard to try and remember everything that you need to take for the little one’s to keep busy on a long trip. Sometimes I do not know how my daughter-in-law does it with our grandson, but they travel all the time together-
