Netflix Travel Essentials For The Entire Family

When you are travelling with kids, packing the right things to help keep them entertained is essential. There are some items that you should always pack with you, no matter the destination, like the kid’s iPads, loaded with their favourite Netflix shows.

For our preschooler, we pack snacks, water and some new Beat Bugs, Word Party, Super Monster and Octanauts episodes and he is usually set.

Travel Essentials for the entire family

Our 7-year-old is happy with his fidget spinner and a bunch of episodes from his favourite shows. I love when he watches shows like “Magic School Bus Rides Again” because they are educational and he is learning without even thinking about it.

Long airport waits, and plane rides are the perfect time to catch up on your favourite shows, and we also load our devices with our own faves. Once the kids are happy and entertained, I can get my iPad ready to watch my own shows as well.

We are going to Disneyland in a few weeks, and I’ll be downloading some Stranger Things episodes to watch during the travel time! Can’t wait to get a few hours of “me” time.

My husband also downloads some of his favourite shows, and since we have some shows we are watching together, we can both download episodes and watch at the same time or take turns with one device catching up together.

Do you download Netflix shows for your children or yourself before a trip? Here are instructions on how to do it, if you have never done it before.

    Definitely a must have for traveling…or in general. We’re a binge watching family.

    Netflix is always getting better and better and better! Definitely have plans to use it when travelling with the kids this summer! 🙂

    No, I don’t download movies nor shows to watch whilst travelling. I usually have my cross-stitch work with me and a good book, that’s more than enough.

    I have never downloaded Netflix. I stream mostly. I will have to remember to do this for our next trip.

    When my kids were young there weren’t any of these phones or such around, it must be much easier to keep kids occupied and happy during flights these days.

    My wife loves the TV shows on Netflix and I like the documentaries. Our kids are too young to be watching TV. Great article!

    I downloaded some episodes of my son’s favourite show for the flight to Ontario this summer and it totally came in handy!
