Travel Activities for Your Littles

This is part 2 of a series of “what is in my bag” when I travel with the kids. Check out part 1, about my favorite travel books.  Keeping the kids busy while you travel can be challenging. I rely heavily on the books I listed in my last post. (You can see those books here.) […]
