March Break Travel Essentials

March Break Travel Essentials

March 5, 2024 Gift Guides

For many of us March Break means the chance to escape for sunny or snowy fun! But first you have to survive the flight 😬

As a mom of three, and fearless family traveler, our founder Megan is always on the lookout for easy to pack toys that deliver big fun without weighing down an already overstuffed bag. And her testers aren't shy about telling her what they really think!

Whether this is your first trip with kids or you’re just looking to pack some screen-free alternatives, here are our best bets for your carry-on. Goldfish and sunscreen not included!

Busy Breeze Board

Busy hands are happy hands! Especially when you’re killing time during a weather delay. This board is jam-packed with zippers, snaps, flaps and fun. A removable middle page makes it easy to share between tiny travelers.
