Car Seat Travel Tray

A car seat travel tray is a wonderful way to keep your child happy when he is strapped into the carseat on long trips. It gives him an area to play with various toys and it can also make snack time a lot easier. Toys and snacks will no longer be falling down into his lap when you use a travel tray, or onto the floor as easily. You can use a simple lap tray or a lap desk, or you can buy a car seat travel tray that is specially designed to go in the car and will attach to most car seats.

Several makers of child car seat trays can be found here. Momsminivan recommends these:
Snack and Play Travel Tray
RoadTrip Mom's favorite!

Snack and Play - Car Seat Tray - Travel Tray for cars - Lap tray
Snack and Play Travel Tray

Available at Amazon

This car seat tray is especially nice because it is made of stiff foam and so it is flexible and easy to strap onto any carseat or stroller. It works great on an airplane too. And it's been crash tested for safety.

This car seat travel tray is also highly recommended by Momsminivan readers. It gives your toddler a hard surface to color on, and it has a cupholder built in. Because this tray is made of foam, it is soft and much safer in a crash than a hard sided tray.

This great child lap tray holds snacks, drinks, books, toys, crayons, etc. It's easy to reach cup/bottle holder is recessed to help prevent spills. It easily fits onto most car seats and strollers. 

This simple product gives kids a place to color, play with cars, have a snack or play games with their siblings. It's nice for kids to have their own workspace in the car or stroller.  It works best with car seats that have arms such as the one pictured.  They do not work as well on booster seats.  It should be noted that the belt is designed to go around your child's waist, not the car seat its self. This gives you the best fit.

NEW: This now comes in a Deluxe model


Car Travel Trays for Bigger Kids:
Kids' Car Organizer XL
We love this one!
Here's an option for bigger kids that doubles as a storage unit for all their car travel activities and all that stuff that is usually rolling around on the floor!  There is a smaller version of this available, but don't bother with it -- it doesn't hold enough stuff and is a waste of space.

The nifty lid us used as an activity tray, and it has raised edges so small items don't roll all over the place. 

The unit is seat-belted in to make it secure, and has a carrying strap.

Back Seat Organizer "Car Valet" 
with travel tray for kids
Here is another option to a car seat travel tray. It's a car valet that helps your child keep his things organized and it has a fold down tray area.
Taby Tray
If you think your child might prefer a hard plastic type of car seat tray, the Taby Tray is an option. There are no side pockets for toys though, so you might also consider a car organizer to sit along side your child so they will have access to their toys and other items.


Remember -- More comfort equals less whining!
