GIVEAWAY CLOSED – Congrats to our five winners: Lauren M., Destiny A., Jessica W., Katie M., and Clarissa V. (All winners have been contacted via email). 

Anyone who’s said “the joy is in the journey” has probably never taken a road trip with a baby and a toddler. And if you haven’t heard a little voice from the backseat ask, “are we there yet?” five minutes into a five-hour car ride, it’s probably because your kid can’t talk just yet.

Yes, it’s summer and travel is ramping up. Whether you’re taking a road trip to the lake, a flight to the beach, or heading anywhere in between, we know traveling with kids is more challenging than it was before you became a parent. So The Everymom is here to help, in partnership with Noggin. We’re bringing you the ultimate summer packing list, plus a chance to win a travel prize pack of our CEO and Cofounder Alaina Kaz’s kids-gear must-haves to make your journey easier. A little thoughtful preparation can make summer trips less stressful and more enjoyable. The other secret? Snacks—lots and lots of easy-to-access snacks.


The One Thing You Don’t Want to Forget for Summer Travel

Besides nibbles, entertainment for the kids is essential for a smooth travel day. Loading up your tablet with Noggin, Nick Jr.’s educational platform for kids ages 2 to 7, means your little ones will be delighted to learn from their favorite characters from popular TV shows including Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, and Bubble Guppies.

Noggin’s ad-free, kid-safe, and easy-to-navigate platform was developed by education experts. By subscribing to Noggin, you’ll get access to an ever-expanding library of educational games, e-books, activities, and 1,000+ full episodes of preschooler favorites. With Noggin on your tablet or phone—and a little bit of luck—the only sounds you’ll hear from the back seat on your trip will be giggles and sing-alongs.
