A variety of kids travel hacks and kits from Pinterest.

Travelling To Europe Travel Kit

Nice video. Personally instead of taking antibiotics we recommend finding the local fermented food and have some handy for all sorts of ailments and keeping belly bugs away.  If you use antibacterial wipes take care they use a natural sanitiser and don't rely on harmful chemicals which can wreak havoc on kids immune system over time. Your kids natural resistance is what they need most.

Thanks to  for this video of a mum deciding what to pack. Great ideas for your young children and babies. The best advice here is if you are traveling for more than a few weeks the problems can become even more pronounced. Here we have advice from a world traveling mother of two (a 5 year old that has visited 19 countries and a 1 year old who has visited 11). 

kids Put travel kits together

HeyKayli takes the kids to put their favorite travel kits together. This is such a great idea. Kids get pumped because they are planning for the trip ahead. Kayle says Traveling can be rough on kids, but bringing along a few of their favorite things and a couple surprises can make such a big difference!Watch them put travel kits together.

Family Travel Kit

Teressa says. "Have you ever wondered what you should pack for your kids on the next flight?" Family Travel Insider, Teresa Strasser, shares her must haves. Personally we are not big fans of taking the ipad for kids. We don't do sweets for our kids either but the advice on finding some sweets for sucking on a plane to help with the ears is a good tip.

Thanks for the video bestwesternTV
