Treats For The Trip
All children have their fads about food amongst other things. There might be a cookie or a biscuit available with your local baker that your child absolutely adores. Pack a few of these treats in zip lock bags and carry the long lasting stuff with you to the trip. It could really avoid you some exasperating kid tantrums. And no one is stopping you from biting in!

It’s not possible to dedicate a bag to every single family member as excessive luggage becomes a headache, so sharing luggage space becomes quintessential. Kids although have a lot of clothes, the sizes remain small and manageable. Again, making use of zip-lock bags you can roll and fit in kids clothes and pack these bags in small unused bag space. Another great idea is to carry old stuff with regard to undergarments, etc. You can literally use and throw these and create some bag space to bring back souvenirs.
Kids shoes can be easily put away in your shower cap and slid into the luggage. Not only will your luggage remain clean but the shoes will also sit comfortably perched in a proper place. As for the younger kids, you can slip in more than a pair in your shower cap.

Pack Medicine & Important Drugs
Do not forget to make a list of all important medication that your children might require. Carry medicines for minor colds, coughs and fever. If your kid is allergic to certain foods, smells, etc., its always wise to carry the requisite medicines along. In fact this is something that you must not miss. Also have the phone numbers of a few local pediatricians with you, just in case!

Cater For Their Entertainment
With kids traveling along, you can always expect action and emotion. Be prepared than sorry. Carry small toys and books that might keep your little ones busy when they are feeling bored. Small toys and books make up for great companions on long road journeys. After all kids won’t enjoy the adult entertainment activities and might want to retire on their own.
