It’s those four dreaded words we hear constantly while traveling with kids that annoy the crap out of parents, “Are We There Yet?”. I am sure most of us would be rich if we got a dollar for every time we heard those words. This year I want to be prepared while traveling for the holidays with the kids in tow. I am making sure to pack some very entertaining, keep quiet while traveling must-haves. Check out my list below to see if some of the things I pack are on your list too.
Tablet or Device to stream Netflix and games.
Snacks and Drinks that are mess free. (Juice Boxes, Chips, Cookies, Gold Fish, Candy, Sandwiches)
Fidget Spinners to keep even the adults satisfied.
Reading and coloring books
Travel size pillow and blanket
No matter if it’s for your littlest one, pre-teen or anyone in between, there are Netflix shows for everyone in the family to pack in their carry-on. And it’s not just Netflix originals, check out the ‘Available for Download’ menu on the Netflix app on your mobile or tablet device and browse all of the titles available to take with you whenever and wherever you want.

For Big Kids:
Sound familiar? The official Netflix Family downloads jingle is taking a page from the infamous melody of the Orange is the New Black theme song. While vacationing may be easy, getting there is hard, and being trapped in the car on a family road trip can feel like being in Litchfield. This cute and relatable parody will have you humming along for the whole ride.
23% of parents in the US say one of their main concerns when traveling is keeping their kids entertained. With the holidays just around the corner, parents can look to offline viewing on Netflix to keep everything, and everyone, under control while on the go. From the tried-and-true shows you can rely on like Beat Bugs and Luna Petunia to calm any meltdown, to discovering new show obsessions like PJ Masks, Netflix downloads are a must-have travel essential for parents and their kids.
So when it’s time to go on a trip together, one thing is for sure: when Netflix at home becomes Netflix on the go, everyone stays content, engaged and, most importantly, NOT bored. How does Netflix keep your family sane and entertained while on the go?
