Tips for a Successful Road Trip with Kids

Put In the Prep Work: Whether you are going to be in the car for two, six or 12 hours, if you want to survive the trip with your sanity you must plan activities — lots of different activities. The goal is to have more activities than you need because in this case, less is not always more!
Tip: Keep all of your activities a secret, even consider wrapping some like gifts. And then dispense as needed. Don’t forget to reserve some surprises for the trip home!
Pack Snacks: I am not sure what it is about traveling that turns everyone into professional snackers? Anyone else have that problem? So pack your best snacks for each passenger!

Pit Stops:  If you can plan for some well-timed stops, like lunch, for everyone to stretch their legs and use the bathroom, fantastic. But there will likely be additional stops along the way. My recommendation is to stop at a fast food restaurant for potty breaks over a gas station, they are cleaner.

Doctor Mom: Hopefully, your adventures will be smooth sailing without any ailments, but with kids, you never know. Keep your travel meds handy so that in the event you need something you don’t have to stop. Some of my essentials are Benadryl. Tylenol, Advil, and Dramamine — keep it in an easy to reach baggie, just in case.
