Do you have any epic trips planned this summer? Or, even just, a road trip to the grandparents? As of now, we’ve got nothing planned, but to stay put. Perhaps, that is why this post is so fun. I’ll travel along, viturally, with you.
He shared what is a must in their car (I took note of all of the gadgety plug in type things that we are always needing, but I never which kind) and, most importantly, why traveling with kids, although rough at times, is worth every “are we there yet.” It’s good to get kids out of their everyday environment. I loved his pointers, but even more so the humor and heart behind it.
Isn’t it fun?
So, while I don’t have any trips planned, we are pretty seasoned road trippers as we trek to back and forth to Atlanta to visit family. We did the 12 hour drive two times this past spring – almost back to back. So, by now, I’m pretty certain about what to pack.
Here are our must haves:
(as shown above)
2/ Tablets : Like Corbyn mentioned, cheap ones work just fine for kids. We have a $50 Google Dragon for our little ones and they just call them their iPads.
3 / Coloring Books : This one is a fave. You’ll want to color in it to kill time, too.
4 / Pillow Pets : A stuffed animal and pillow all in one. That way you don’t have to bring both.
8 / Snacks : Food. Always lots of foods. I don’t know about your kids, but mine are extra hungry when they are bored. We love any of Annies snacks.
9 / Snackeez : A cup and a bowl. Combo is all the rage on infomercials.
