Tips For Road Trips With Kids

Road Trip To The Grampians.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1957" align="alignright" width="300"]Hiking In The Grampians Hiking In The Grampians[/caption]                         Usually when parents think about a road trip with their kids, they think it's going to be hell on wheels! I thought that too. Being from America, when newbie parents buy their new family car they think, "I MUST have a DVD player". I, too bought my first family car with a DVD player installed in it. I thought it would be a great distraction when hitting the road for a long trip. Since my move to Australia, however, our new family car does not have this feature. For some strange reason, it didn't stress me out. Maybe because I was in a new placeand a new environment with interesting things to see. For about two years, we have done family road trips, from 2 to 6 hours long and not once has my toddler been bored and asked me for my iPhone or iPad. Now that I'm writing this, I find it strange. American families rely so much on TV to entertain their children, don't you think? So I began to think about what did I differently on road trips with my child, to keep him engaged when he was awake.

Here Are My Survival Tips

1.  Bring snacks and water. 2 . Play Games: I Spy, Shapes and Signs etc...See reblog to see great road trip games. 3.  Talk: Yes, communicate with your child about what's outside.  For example, if you see a cow: talk about what a cow eats and where we get milk. 4.  Use sunshades on the windows. If you have a baby, it's a bit trickier. I usually end up squeezing in between my two sons and giving my baby a bottle, food and toy when he needs it.

Road trips in our minivan paired with "old school" games create special family memories.

I truly love our Honda Odyssey minivan which we got last spring. I don’t know what the hang up is with minivans vs SUVs. I knew as soon as I sat in the 3rd row of the Honda Odyssey that this minivan was the way to go…comfortable and lots more legroom…great for family trips. 468 more words
