Surviving a Road Trip

Share Button

Here is the next installment of episodes from our webisode series.  This month is all about surviving a road trip–or thriving as it were!  Here is the teaser to get you started!

So the first step to “surviving” a road trip is to ensure that everyone is entertained.  The key is spreading out the entertainment over the life of the trip–don’t show all your cards from the beginning, so that they don’t get bored too quickly.

The license plate game is a must!  Here is a downloadable version and here is the Melissa and Doug game that I mention in the video.  Here is a link to my Pinterest board for road trips with downloadables for travel games and must see locations along the way that I’ve collected over time.  And here is a link to the travel trays that both of the boys have.

This is my favorite segment thus far.  Probably because it includes Zain and Mir and illustrates that these videos are done in one shot.  If something goes astray, oh well, we have to keep on going.  So it’s fun!  And the recipe for this segment is Monster (Truck) Cookies and they are soooo yummy!

Here is the last segment in the series and shows you how I pack a ton in one duffel bag.  It also uses a bit of time lapse, which Mir could watch all day long.

    For my girls, ages 10 and 12 – we love all kinds of craft things – friendship string, gymp?, those rubber band bracelet things that were popular a few summers ago. Everywhere we go we always buy postcards too for sending to friends, grandparents – that is a fun activity they sometimes can do in the car too.

      Those are all great ideas! We took the rubber bands kit on a trip last year and it took me hours to figure it out. I think you have to be 12! But once I did, they were a huge hit!
