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

Travel Card Game. This game is perfect for families to play on long car journeys. €5

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.

Pocket Kite

Perfect if you are planning on spending time on a beach. The ones I sell cost €7 and 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.

Great Little Games.

Creativity Placemats.

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.
