A road trip is a right of passage for many American families. It is a time for families to spend hours on end enjoying one another’s company, playing games, seeing new sights, and creating memories. My husband loves road trips. We usually end up making at least one road trip each year and have learned many things along the way. The longest car ride was from Chicago to San Antonio, and we have made several trips to Nashville and New York by car. Each time I swear I will never, ever, travel that far in a car with three children again. However, we continue to take road trips, so I guess the best thing to do is to find some awesome road trip activities for kids to help pass the time.
In order to survive, I have researched hours on end for activities to keep the kids busy. I think the kids would agree I have come up with some creative activities that make our road trips a success. We try to make an effort to entertain the kids without technology for as long as possible. We are not perfect, and devices and DVD players do come out in emergencies, but here are some fun ways to pass the time the old fashioned way.
