Summer Travel Essentials Giveaway

You don't want to get sick over summer vacation. Here's a chance to win something to help if you do. Open through 7/5 to US residents. You can win a gift card and some cold meds here. Good luck.

Schools across the country have let out and now is the peak time for family travel. While the joys of traveling with little ones can be exciting and rewarding, it can also be somewhat stressful. As an organized parent, I always pack essentials that I know we may need while on the road. We made travel to parts unknown, but wherever we go, germs are going to be there. That is why I want my travel essentials kit to include medicines that will help them feel better in the event we pick up a summer cold along our journey.

Here are a few essentials I take with us on any road trip or travel plans we have throughout the year.

Their favorite toys and books - while you don't need to pack their entire room into the car, taking a few of their favorite toys and books along the road. I recommend some coloring books and crayons or markers. This gives them endless creativity and can keep them busy for quite some time. Snacks - Sometimes, their favorite snacks may not be available where you are traveling. That is why I always make sure to have their favorites on-hand during travels to make sure they happy and aren't upset when they may not want to eat what we encounter along the road. This is also important when your kids have specific food allergies or dietary restrictions. 
A portable DVD player or tablet - when taking long trips, this can really come in handy. For years, my daughter and I would travel to central Florida all the way from Ohio. I would always make sure that we had our portable DVD player with us so she could watch some of her favorite movies and shows. This really helped eliminate boredom and restlessness during the long trip. Today, you can do the same with a tablet and download some movies onto it for them to watch. 
Things to help if they catch a cold - When traveling, you can sometimes pick up more than just souvenirs, sometimes you can pick up a heinous cold. That is why I like to take essentials like their favorite blanket, stuffed toy, some cooling ice packs and Pfizer products that help with cold symptoms. Here is some information for medicine for kids of many ages.
When sick gets real, the pediatric brands of Pfizer Consumer Healthcare are there with three solutions – Children’s Advil®, Children’s Robitussin® and Children’s Dimetapp® – to tackle the ickiest of symptoms.
