Are you planning a trip this summer with the kids? If you are going to be in the car for longer than 30 minutes, you need to find ways to entertain your children! Trust me on this one parents.
I have a few ideas to help you make the most of your time spent in the car this summer to help keep your kids happy, engaged and entertained without screen time.
1) Program a kids playlist and encourage singing along. While you might not cheer at the thought of listening to your kids favorite songs for several hours, it sure does beat hearing arguing or the dreaded question “Are we there yet?”
2) Pack a few light snacks and drinks for the kids. They will be hungry exactly when you don’t want to stop driving.
3) Printables are your friend! All you need is some crayons, and a stack of printables. They will engage your kids, keep them learning and best of all they will be happily entertained!
I have a great resource for you to get great printable games for FREE!
You can print as many copies of Traffic Jam, Number Plate Game, Car Search, Car Bingo, Consequences as you would like! These are perfect for a trip in the car, if it is 30 minutes or 6 hours! Start printing your copies here.
Being prepared for a lengthy car trip with kids can make all the difference and save parents a lot of frustration from kids that are not having fun on the ride due to lack of activities for them to engage in.
What do you pack to keep the kids entertained when you travel?
