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.
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.
