In the next 3 weeks, I will be spending 6 days of 4+ hours in the car with the kids. My kids are pretty good travelers, most of the time, but like any kids, there comes a point when car travel gets old. That’s when the complaining and sibling fighting starts.
I like to be proactive in dealing with problems before they begin. Therefore, I like to have an arsenal of ideas, ready to keep the kids happy before boredom turns to fighting.
These are just a few of the things I have planned for this month’s trips.
What do you do to keep the kids happy on long road trips?
