Are you ready for long car trips or plane rides this summer?

Maybe you want to keep your child busy when you are out to eat or waiting for a doctors appointment and you want to keep them off the electronics.

I found this idea from another blogger last year, and it has been invaluable on our trips in the car or on the plane (even great at restaurants!)

The great thing about these activity bags are you can customize them to your child’s preference.

I purchased a travel cosmetic bag on Amazon. There are so many to choose from but you want to find a larger capacity cosmetic/toiletry bag. I found this large capacity, waterproof and easy to clean bag which comes in a variety of colors. Here is a similar one on Amazon CalorMixs Travel Cosmetic Bag Printed Multifunction Portable Toiletry Bag Cosmetic Makeup Pouch Case Organizer for Travel. It’s a bit larger (Dimension:10.23 ” x 8.27 ” x 3.93″).

Because this one is larger this activity bag will be used on car rides or on plane rides. It can fit nicely in my son’s carry on bag.

But because it’s larger it can also hold more things like:

  1. Crayons and Markers

  2. Glue

  3. Stickers

  4. Small Construction Paper Pad

I also purchased a smaller bag which is also waterproof and comes in a variety of colors.

The purpose of this bag was to keep in my purse (I do carry larger purses) for when we go out to dinner or waiting at the doctor’s office.

But the stuff inside is pretty much the same stickers, books, Ocean Go Fish cards.

I loved the idea of having this activity bag, so my son isn’t always watching movies on our phones.  We can do this together as a family, it can be more educational and overall good family fun.


Do you carry any kind of bag like this on your adventures?
