ROAD TRIP GAMES & ACTIVITIES

Did you ever wonder how you can make your road trip enjoyable for your child? No nagging and crying? No nagging means a road trip full of activities and fun. Examples could be:

MAKE A MAP OF YOUR JOURNEY:

Create your trip map and track it with the kids. You could add a treasure map component by rewarding checkpoints along your trip. As you reach certain points they can get a toy/snack. This teaches them map skills while also occupying them with toys and the anticipation of the destination.

PHOTOGRAPHY ON THE MOVE:

Let them take pictures of what you are driving by with a digital camera.

DOCTOR ON CALL:

A Box of Band-Aids and a rubbing alcohol pad. Let them play.

CATALOGUE SHOPPING:

Toy magazines - these keep my kids entertained for hours. You can even let them cut out pictures of the things they want and make a collage with a couple glue sticks, if you are feeling adventurous.

DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPERATE MEASURES:

DVD and a portable player for when you are desperate.

ROAD TRIP SNACKS:

PORTABLE FOOD:

Boxes of raisins, string cheese, crackers, grapes, apple slices, juice boxes.

SURPRISE MIX:

Nuts, M&Ms, dried fruit, granola, goldfish crackers, pretzels, gummy fruit snacks, etc.

Marshmallows + pretzels.

Pepperoni sans the pizza.

ROAD TRIP MUST-HAVE ITEMS:

STORAGE SPACE:

Bring LOTS of zip lock baggies. They are great for everything! A permanent marker to label things isn’t a bad thing to have either

EASY WIPES:

Diaper wipes are a road trip. These are great for cleaning faces and surfaces, even as a form of entertainment if you are desperate.

JUST IN CASE:

A first aid kit with Tylenol.

PAINTER TAPE:

The kids can play with it, you can use it to label things and it can be used to cover outlets in hotels.

CUPS NOT FOR DRINKING:

Use plastic cups for snack service. They can be easily held by a child or stored in a cup holder when not snacking.
