I have been looking all over to find the best way to pack our things and tips on how to entertain our kids on the long car rides that we will have from place to place. I found some ways to fight boredom on car trips on mommy’s idea book blog and on uptake.com. Take a look here and here to find great games and activities for your kids to do in the car. I know my children will particularly like hooking up the family mp3 player and playing “Name That Tune”! I am also going to use the “kids essentials check list for a road” put together by Real Simple.
To pack, I love the suggestion that I found on the small notebook blog to pack each day’s clothing in individual Ziploc bags. This will make it easy for my kids to find their clothes and will keep them from destroying the contents of their suitcases when looking for something to wear. It will also help my 7 year old wear clean clothes every day that also match!
If you have any great ideas, please let me know!
