While some families prefer to spend spring break in the comfort of their homes, others are planning to pack their bags and head off on an adventure together! Not all destinations are a 5-minute car ride away, however, which is why we are here to lend a helping hand to the families who will be spending some time in the car with kiddos this season.
Here are 5 easily-portable toys that are sure to beat boredom on the road:
With this drawing board, children can make sketch after sketch, all on one surface. The magic is in the markers – they’re filled with water! This means drawings disappear after some time, leaving space for a new mini masterpiece. And if kids don’t want to draw, they can also play classic games such as tic-tac-toe or practice their writing skills on-the-go.
- 1 double-sided drawing board
- 4 water markers
- Side handles
Turn the car into a pretend construction site with mini trucks! This colorful set comes with 3 classic toy vehicles: a dump truck, a cement mixer, and a crane truck. But that’s not all – each one also includes a removable driver! This playset is especially great if you’re on the road with a couple o’ siblings or pals. Sharing is caring, after all!
- 3 mini construction trucks
- 3 removable drivers

Traveling with a tiny tot? We’ve got two small ‘n’ portable musical instruments that are sure to make them smile. Inspired by our fan favorites – the Woofer and the Meowsic – these little versions feature baby-friendly designs, chunky buttons, colorful lights, and sounds that are easy on grown-up ears. Are you more ‘woof’ or ‘meow’?

Combine musical fun with learning by playing memory games! This educational toy features 4 different games for children to play on the road (you can participate too!).
