Road Trip Hacks and Tips
Traveling on the road for more than an hour can be exhausting. Especially when going anywhere with the kids! We put together some of the most cleaver mom hacks to help you on your next road trip with the kids. From notebooks and games that distract, to an accountability system on the sun visor, to ways to store snacks and miscellaneous items, we are by your side on your next road trip adventure! Happy travels!
First, keep the kids entertained with games. These 12 games to play in the car require very little supplies. These printable car games include conversation cards, license plate tag checklist and our road trip scavenger hunt! They help eliminate the dreaded question of “are we there yet?”
