Last month we took a 3-hour road trip to see family. Today, I wanted to share with you our tips and tricks to surviving a road trip with kids.
Last year when we took a 10 hour road trip we bought the kids these car seat trays. They have come in handy for so many reasons. They make eating on the go a breeze and the kids like to spread out their coloring books and other toys.
Since my car does not have a DVD player built in another essential item for us are these iPad car headrest cases. We can plug in the kid’s headphones and they can enjoy movies and games while giving mama a bit of peace and quiet. Before we leave town we always rent a new movie for them via iTunes so that it helps hold their interest.
Another must have is to place a tote in between them filled with activities and snacks. We include coloring books and crayons, a travel puzzle (although the car seat trays come in handy they won’t make a completely even surface for a puzzle. So, we like to bring along a cookie sheet for them to do their puzzles on). We also include plenty of our favorite snacks.
