Fall is a big travel season for many people. Even though school is starting many are also planning trips! Here are 8 road trip tips/ideas to try on your next trip. What works for one kid/family doesn’t work for another so it’s always a good idea to arm yourself with lots of activities.

  1. DIY Travel Activity Box (change it up to meet your child’s interests)
  2. Printable Road Trip activity book
  3. Road Trip tips (like a screen shot of your directions in case your data isn’t working)
  4. Window Markers (a lot of kids seem to love these)
  5. Along the Way road trip app
  6. A shower caddy for food
  7. Re-useable mazes
  8. Car Games

I also love this idea: Use a metal baking pan and make magnetic puzzles with puzzles you already have or make some with DVD covers

  1. This are great ideas to keep the kids occupied during road trips. I especially like the magnetic puzzle. You won’t have to worry about the puzzle constantly falling apart or losing pieces on the car floor!
