Now the tricky part is this, how do you do a road trip with two very active toddlers and an 8 year old for 12 hours!! Ugh the thought of that just gets me anxious! Of course I goggled and searched Pinterest for some ideas and actually found some that I'm using.
First of all, I thought this idea was great for packing since we are a bigger family and this not only saves room but keeps you organized, pack outfits for the kids in ziplock bags
Then I also made each kid an activity bag which consisted of all these little items here are some. I bought cookie sheets from the dollar store and painted them with chalk paint , that way they had it to play with chalk, and magnets and also used it as a tray. The road trip Bingo is mainly to play with Austin, since the little ones don't understand
Then I found these ideas to bring in the car; in an old wipe box I made a little first aid kit for the car, and the last one is the clothes pin idea; each kid gets a clothes pin and if they are good the clothes pin stays up and at the next pit stop they get a treat!
Hopefully these little tips and tricks that I found will keep the trip a little less chaotic, what are some tips and tricks that you use for road trips with kids?
