Are you busy planning trips for the summer holidays? We will be staying in the UK for the whole 6 weeks holiday this year, but will be travelling around within the UK. Travelling by train can be a great option for domestic travel, and means that we don’t need to think about parking. I just make sure to always bag the seats with the table so that the kids can be more easily entertained!

If you are travelling by train this summer, it’s worth looking at TransPennineExpress for booking train tickets as they don’t charge booking fees and you can collect nectar points on your purchase. (Visit the TransPennine Express website for train tickets)

If you do have a train journey planned, I have five different free printable games to share with you today to keep the kids amused  while travelling. I find that these kind of activities keep my boys entertained well, and I love to see them engaged in these traditional puzzles and games.

Free printable kids travel games pack including lots of traditional pen and paper games for kids, to keep them busy on long journeys (or in waiting rooms!)
