The Toys and Products I Used to Keep My 7-Month-Old Twins Entertained Over a 2-Day Road Trip
When my husband and I first started talking about taking our three kids to Disney World, we thought for sure we’d fly from Pennsylvania to Florida. The more we crunched the numbers, however, the more we realized that we would save over a thousand dollars by driving.
So, we loaded up the family van and buckled in our four-year-old daughter and our seven-month-old twin boys. Before leaving for the trip, I knew I needed a well-stocked toy stash if my twins were going to arrive with smiles on their faces. Sometimes the toy you think kids will absolutely adore flops, so I didn’t rely solely on new toys to entertain them. I knew they would feel the comforts of home with their favorite toys as well.
I brought a nice mix of new as well as tried and true toys. I also leaned more toward loud, flashy toys for the trip, which is something I typically avoid in baby toys. I’ve found that these types of toys help keep them entertained when they’re stuck in their car seats for an extended period of time.
Here are nine of the toys I brought to keep the babies entertained during the 32-hour round-trip drive.
