Planning! By planning ahead and preparing some activities to keep your kids entertained and occupied, those long distances on the highway won’t seem so endless and you’ll find yourself at your destination in no time!

Supplies:
Chose a plastic container with a lid, size dependent on how many items you want to include.

To keep the kids engaged as they travel, give them a photocopy of your map. Highlight the route you are taking to destination so the kids can follow along, and help navigate.

    I like the car bingo. When we went on long road trips I would make up gallon ziplock bags with a treat and an activity. I had a non see through bin with a cover. Then every couple of hours I would give them their new surprise activity. Don’t forget to pack some for the ride home…some activities can be repeated. Also pickup a kids atlas,you can get them for all different ages. A new game for their electronics, books or a craft works good too. I got them each a tray for in the car, do they could draw or color. Don’t show them anything ahead. I must say it was pretty fun putting the bags together and their excitement for the new bag.
