Whether are going to your lake house a couple of hours away, on an airplane to a new destination or on a road trip around the United States, traveling with kids can challenge the most seasoned travelers.
Stocking up on movies, books, games and small toys can make the difference between a great experience and a nightmare to remember.
Summer traveling can put a strain on your budget, so finding economical ways to entertain the kids is often mandatory. Consignment stores, like Swap.com, offer the perfect solution for stocking up on everything you need to have a smooth trip, without breaking the bank.
Here are some ideas to pass the time easily on the go:
Movies are a great way to kill wait time at airports and keep kids occupied and quiet in the car. At consignment stores you can often purchase 4 or 5 movies for the price of just one at a regular retailer. The selection is often comparable to that of stores. Swap.com has hundreds of movie titles for kids and adults alike in its site.
Books are always fantastic options to keep everyone occupied for hours. Consignment stores offer hundreds of titles for young children, independent readers and adults alike. Books entertain everyone on the go and also once you’ve arrived at your destination.
Puzzles and coloring books can be used on the plane easily when you lower the food tray and also in the car using a cheap lap tray. Once you reach your vacation spot, kids can continue to play with these items during downtime, or bring them to restaurants to keep them busy during longer meal times.
Classic games such as card games are always fun and easy to transport. Consignment stores offer a variety of compact travel games such as Rush Hour Traffic Jam game, memory card games, dominoes and a variety of infant sensory toys, most of them under $10.
And last, but not least, don’t forget to check out the baby gear selection with infant carriers, blankets, bibs, travel changing pads, bags and a variety of like-new and new travel accessories for a fraction of the cost.
This summer, make traveling fun and memorable for everyone shopping at consignment stores.
