What do you do to make traveling with your kids a lot easier?
I read an article in American Baby that gave me more ideas then I already had. Some things I already do are packing Mini Buff a baggy of cereal or some other snack and having his sippy cup full of juice. And have an extra thing of juice to fill it when it gets empty. We also have a DVD player for the car. It’s strapped to the back of my seat so he can see it.
But other ideas people had were taking along some toys for the kids to play with. We sometimes bring along some Matchbox cars but most of the time we forget them. I should pack them up more. Taking breaks at rest stops too. Meaning, getting out, running around, stretching out your legs. I know running around shouldn’t be done at a rest stop, but you know what I mean. We’ve never done that. Maybe he’d be a lot less cranky if we did that more often.
There were lots of other ideas, but that would make for a long post. And some of them are things we already do for him. So, lemme ask you, the readers, what do you do for your car time with your kids?
