Tips for How to Survive a Road Trip with Kids

Traveling long distance is never easy, especially when you have several screaming kids in the back of your vehicle. Kids can become restless as they are full of energy. It’s important to make sure you have a pleasant and enjoyable trip for all. One of the main reasons for arguments in a car stems from hunger issues. Kids don’t have the patience to wait until you reach your destination to eat. As a matter of fact, they can behave erratic if they don’t have a snack or meal on hand. You should always pack a healthy lunch and bring several snacks. You can also make them happier by letting them pick their snacks of choice.

Kids need to be constantly entertained. Whether they have a toy, a video game to play or a movie to watch. You can plan a fun movie to watch beforehand. This will also spare you any screaming matches during the trip. Movies typically last 2 hours or so and many kids tend to fall asleep while the car is in motion anyway. Choosing a nice cartoon or family game show is a good idea. Some kids prefer to play video games on the mobile device or a handheld console. You can download a few mobile gaming apps to keep them preoccupied as well. There are tons of free games available for download at any iTunes or Play shop.

Kids love to interact with you. It may seem a bit cliche, but kids love to sing along to popular songs or stuff you can think of on the spot. You can be as creative as you like to make things fun. You can sing Disney tunes or play trivia games with them to test their knowledge. You can also make the games educational at the same time. They can learn about history, geography, spelling and even mathematics. You can always turn the radio on and play their favorite songs. Don’t be afraid to introduce them to new tunes as well.
