Travel Toys For School Aged Children

Travel Toys For School Aged Children

In April, I wrote a very popular blog on ‘Travel Toys for Pre-School Aged Children‘ and now, with the school holidays looming, I thought I’d write one with older children in mind. So, if you have primary aged children and you’re looking for some small, light toys or games to bring on holidays with you, here’s my favourite.

Are We There Yet?

Are we there yet travel game for car journeys

This is a travel card game where you have to be the first to spot things listed on the cards. This game is perfect for families to play on long car journeys.

Alphabet Workbook

Alphabet Sticker Book for 3 and 4 year olds from Galt

If you are taking your child out of school to go on holiday, you can ease your conscience by giving them some educational work to do while away! The great thing is that many children actually love filling in workbooks. This one will help them recognise letters and write them.

 A Kite.

Perfect if you are planning on spending time on a beach. The ones I sell come in three colours – green, orange and blue. They are small and light for travelling with.

Travel Mosaics

Galt Toys - Travel Mosaics

This book of Travel Mosaics is small for travelling with but will keep your child busy as they find the right coloured stickers for each picture.

Wind Up Torch.

Wind-Up Flashlight / Torch

If your kids are going to be in a different bedroom to you, it is nice to leave them with a torch so if they wake up in the dark, they can use it to reassure themselves or find their way to the bathroom.

Pick Up Sticks Game.

Pick Up Sticks Game

This is light and small game that is great fun to play. You need a flat surface to play this one, so it’s perfect for playing while you’re waiting for food to be served or on a raining day in a caravan.

I hope this blog has helped you and that you all have lovely holidays, whether you are staying in Ireland or going abroad. If your child likes games more than toys, it might be worth looking at this Travel Games blog, or you might find this Travel Toys for 6-8 year olds blog interesting, although there is quite a bit of overlap between it and this blog.
