Oh the places we go...tips and tricks for traveling with kids

In the car…for hours and hours

Here is a list of things we have done on road trips with our kids (ages 1, almost 4 and 6). I’d love to hear what your family does. New ideas are always fun and helpful. 

  1. Reading time 
  2. Screen time (mix in educational shows/apps/games)
  3. Eye Spy (color game)
  4. Snack time (We sacrifice crumbs for peace and quiet and killing a little more time – We just try to vacuum our car after every long trip and it’s SO worth it)
  5. Coloring with magic crayons (the ones that only color on specific coloring books) are perfect for any age
  6. Stop and get wiggles out
  7. The humming game (hum a tune and everyone else guesses the song)
  8. Look outside and try to find interesting things
  9. Bring a bag of toys / books / coloring books
  10. Find it first game (I have no creative title for this game. Split family into two teams and have a list of outside objects to find. The first team to find them and say them aloud wins and gets candy)
