Unplugging on Vacation
Kids of all ages are bombarded with electronics – from TV to video games to iPads. They are in our schools and in our homes and it is increasingly difficult to unplug and relax without a screen. There are even reports of kids needing therapy to overcome their iPad addiction. Travel is a perfect time to gradually wean kids (and adults) from the screens that invade our lives.
- Vintage Wire Puzzles from Schylling: A retro favorite that still entertains restless kids. These are great for solo play or race each other to see who can solve them first.
- Mr Mystery Invisible Ink Books: Invisible Ink books are favorites for kids of all ages – I love these for travel because they are both solo play and interactive.
- BlendyPen Activity Books from Melissa & Doug: BlendyPens add a fun twist to traditional coloring activities.
- Magnetic or Vinyl Cling PlaySets: An all time travel favorite – playsets spark the imagination!
