Road Trip Tips
No matter if this is your first time taking a trip with your kids or if you're a road trip veteran, you'll definitely want to take a look at the useful tips and tricks to making your family vacation as smooth as possible.
Pack strategically. Make sure that everything you'll need is packed into the car where you can easily access it. You won't want to unpack your entire trunk of luggage because the diaper bad was buried behind two suitcases and a stroller.
Snacks are a must! Even as adults, people tend to get cranky when they're hungry. Children are much more prone to this behavior when they haven't eaten in a while. Keep some car-friendly snacks for the kids to munch on between meals and rest stops. Try these Summer Vacation Snack Packs for easy food storage in the car.
Make regular pit stops. Keep in mind that children can't ride as long in the car as adults can. Making pit stops every two to three hours is advised even if the children seem to be getting along all right in the car. You don't want to get in trouble when you skip a rest stop and the next one isn't for another few hours.
Join them in the backseat. If there's room in the backseat and your children are young enough to need special attention, try sitting with them rather then in the passenger seat. You can read them stories and help them with their crafts more easily this way than turning around in your seat.
Avoid Meltdowns. With multiple children in the car, meltdowns are bound to occur, but you can prevent these from happening by making sure they've slept and eaten well, are given comfortable amounts of space, and don't have to share entertainment like crayons or snacks with their siblings.
Stick to routines on and off the road. If you have a bedtime routine, stick to it as much as possible so that your child doesn't get too homesick. Stopping at regular intervals as mentioned previously will also prevent the younger ones from getting upset about unexpected changes.
Car Activities and Crafts
Keep your kids busy in the car with some of these easy activities, crafts, and games for kids. These are all easily done or made in the car with little mess to clean up. These activities will make the time fly by, and before any of the kids will know it, you'll be arriving at your destination.
