Putting The Fun Back In With Family Road Trip Tips
There is nothing worse than going on a long drive and having the fun taken out of it because of cranky kids. You need some family road trip tips to survive and come out of it with a smile on you face.
Pack Well But Don’t Eliminate The Space
We did a lot of long drives when the kids were little. But after we bought a van we realized one of our mistakes was literally packing the kids in. Suddenly they all had room to move and it changed the atmosphere. You may think that they are going to sleep all the way and if you are lucky that will be true. But if they don’t and you have them packed in too tight you will pay for it.
You don’t have to buy a van but you may need to consider if you really do need to
take as much stuff as you think you do.
Plan Your Stops
If you know where and when you are going to stop you have the ability to answer that mind bending question: “are we there yet?”
Allow Some Time For Things To Go Wrong
When you are diving with kids things will go wrong. If you are on too tight a schedule you put your self and the trip under stress. It only takes a little to set off a bad atmosphere.
These are just a few we have picked up over the years. But you can get a whole lot more family road trip tips in this article.
