The holidays are coming which means it will be time to visit Grandma! Let’s be honest, traveling with kids sucks. It really does. They normally fight, holler they are hungry every 5 minutes, or are general terrors. We have to be understanding though because it is really hard to sit still that long and be good! Heck, even I have a hard time doing!
Chances are you bought a new car (or are thinking of buying one) from Bossier Chrysler Dodge Jeep to keep those littles safe while traveling! We helped you with the awesome car, now let us help you keep them occupied!
White Board– Let your little ones draw and color with crayola washable markers on a white board. If they are old enough and can write you can ask them to write down the names of things they see. Like a tree, car, cloud, or animal. Better yet let them draw them!
Wish List Making– Get some toy catalogs and let them make a wish list. Let them cut out the pictures and glue them into a collage. Not only will it keep them occupied for hours but it will give them something to look forward to during the holidays and birthdays.
Books On CD’s– When you have enough with the “projects” settle in with a great book on CD. It will be even better if they have the book to read along!
Photography on the Move– Let them take pictures of what you are driving by with a disposable or better yet, a digital camera.
Body art: Use washable tattoos or have the kids create their own by drawing on themselves with washable markers. It is a great way to entertain them and sure to get lots of laughs!
Sing Together- Put on there favorite music ( even if you hate it) and sign along. Have a singing contest like American Idol and let each person sing a different song. The one with the most applause wins!
Using these tips with your own tips will insure that your road trip is fun and a lot less stressful for all those involved!
