Travel Activity Bag for Toddlers & Kids

travel activity bag- portable storage solution for busy bags

Whether you’ve got a road trip coming up or just need to find a way to keep your kiddos entertained for more than a hot minute, you’re going to love this all in one travel activity bag. The best bag to use (and the best goodies to fill it with!) to keep toddlers and preschoolers entertained on the go.

I’m borderline obsessed with making busy bags for kids. The Dollar Tree, Daiso, and the Target Bullseye Playground are all practically begging me to make more busy bags every time I go near them.

But the more I made, the more I ran into a problem- what busy bag storage system contains all this goodness? I’d love to use the busy bags for travel, but I needed an easy way to store and transport them.

I don’t know about you, but there are TONS of times when I could benefit from having my stash of busy bags with me.  Like when the doctor is running behind, or when we’ve got a long flight, or on one of our ten hour road trips.

Or when my husband sends me and my two children to stand in line for a few hours at a Best Buy for a video game system at 6 am on fifteen minutes notice.

No? Is that one just me?

Well at any rate, I finally found a way to set up a travel activity bag that can come with us- and it didn’t take a whole lot of additional time or effort.

I don’t always feel like a super mom, but this fully-stocked, always-so-ready-it-lives-in-the-trunk Travel Activity Bag is a major source of pride for me.

And the best part? You can have your own busy bag storage system in place before you know it, too.
