How to travel on bus with toddlers?

I would like to travel on a bus with my kiddies. My oldest is 3.5 yrs and my youngest is 18 months. I have never travelled before. I have numerous times rode the city bus. And sometimes my daughter( youngest) would get res-less and start to squawk. I am wondering how can I make my trip a smooth one with them. The bus ride would be 7-8 hrs.

  • Just like a plane ride, you need to bring things to keep them busy. Try to make them quiet activities, like coloring books w/ crayons, books, or a portable DVD player. Many times the child will fall asleep. Make sure to also bring a pacifier (if used), and a favorite blanket or stuffed animal. Snacks also help keep them quiet.

  • Travel by bus at night. And hope your kids will sleep threw the trip.
