I just wrote a post about the ultimate packing for kids guide and wanted to make sure I got everything covered. I just wanted to ask what are your must have items to pack in your suitcase / luggage. All tips welcomed.

My favorite thing to do is go to the dollar store.... get several snacks, juice boxes, and cheap fun toys (not too noisy toys). pack a brown bag with a couple new activities and a snack. Throughout the trip, as your child becomes antsy pull out a new brown bag.... Also, if you are traveling by car... portable DVD with headphones. By plane... laptop or phones with movies downloaded. The brown bags work on the plane as well. My other suggestion with the brown bags is make sure not to pack it full of SUGAR.... that will do more harm for you than good. And limit the drinks. If you are going on a plane or traveling in high elevations (mountains)... pack suckers and gum... this will both keep them occupied and help with popping ears.... My other go to... books on tape for the kids, and disney music playing through pandora!!! Enjoy
