- Set aside a few surprises! A new pack of crayons and a coloring or activity book wrapped as presents to be opened when you reach the midpoint of your destination can make a big difference.
- Listen to an audiobook together.
- Make a road trip playlist with some of your favorite songs!
- Pack a cooler with some snacks. Some of our favorites include sandwiches, bananas, cut grapes, cheese sticks, squeezable applesauce, yogurt tubes, and crackers.
- Play a few travel games. When I was a kid, we would keep track of all the different license plates we spotted. Magnetic tangrams is another favorite.
- Paper chain activities. Before your trip, invite your child to make a paper chain with each link listing a different car activity. Remove one of the links for every milestone reached during your journey. The last link is done once you have reached your destination.
- Pack a new book.
- Make your own travel bag. With the help of some fabric crayons, kids can transform a plain canvas bag into a unique travel bag to pack their own toys or activities.
- Window decals. Bring along some page protectors for little ones to create scenes using window decals. Great for storytelling fun!
- Stop for breaks often so everyone can walk around for a few minutes.
