Taking a family road trip can be a great experience. Miles of open road, the pit stops, and of course, the ultimate destination. However, keeping the kids happy can be a full time task on these trips. We've compiled a few activities to make the journey more entertaining (and tolerable) for all.
Pack A “Busy Bag”
To keep the kids distracted, allow each of them to pack a small, laptop sized bag with some of their favorite toys, and maybe a few snacks as well. Depending on their ages, books, crayons, action figures can go a long way. Each child can have their own bag to fill with whatever they choose to keep them occupied.
Listen to an Audiobook
Audiobooks are a great way to kill some time in the car. There is something to offer for kids and adults of all ages and give you the opportunity to have the whole family absorbed I the story. Just pop in the CD, sit back and enjoy the read. Remember most local libraries stock audiobooks and have them available to you at little to no cost.
Watch a Movie
Between in-car DVD players, laptops, tablets, and smart phones, there are now more ways than ever to enjoy movies and television in the palm of your hand. Put one of these devices in the backseat, and start the movie. Don’t hesitate to throw in a couple pairs of headphones and a splitter if you are looking for a quiet ride and a chance for some grown up conversation.
Create a Build-a-Story
Some kids may get carsick where reading or watching a movie may not be the best option for them. A different way to get the whole family involved is to tell a progressive story. One person starts the story with one sentence. The next person adds the next sentence of the story, and the pattern continues around the car. This creates a completely unique story each time and can be played as described her or made into an adventure.
Have a Sing-Along
Many people enjoy singing as a way to pass time while driving. Before embarking on your journey, create a CD or a playlist with everyone's favorite songs. Having a little bit of every passenger's musical taste ensures that everyone can participate and enjoy this activity.
