Along with a backpack we always like to travel with a tote bag that can be put in the overhead bin when flying. We like to keep things we’re likely to need, but aren’t a necessity. This includes extra clothes for the kids, bathing suits, flip flops for mom, snacks, and a blanket.

Next is the activity bag for the kids! We love packing up some special new toys and treats for our kids to enjoy while traveling. We like to keep our older kids stocked with toys and activity books, headphones, water, and lots of book. For littler ones we like to keep some stickers and paper on hand, along with coloring books and a lip balm (just like mama!). And of course, we always let our minis choose one treat from the airport to get them excited about traveling!
