Summer is knocking on our doors and road trips are a must this year. Kids of all ages will love the initial concept but as the hours tick on you will have to find some creative ways to keep them entertained besides continual screen time. We have sourced a few ideas that we hope you will try:


  1.  I Spy - with my little eye.   You could take turns spotting objects or colors.
  2. The License-Plate Game -  Players try to spot license plates from as many states as they can. Whoever spots the most states wins.
  3. 20 Questions - One person thinks of a person or a thing, and the others take turns asking questions to guess who or what it is. Questions must be answered only by "yes" or "no." For little kids, use family members and friends or familiar objects.
  4. The Question Game - Ask open-ended questions such as "If you won a million dollars, what would you do with it?" "If you could pick only one food to eat forever, what would it be?"
  5. The Animal Game - One person thinks of an animal, and others take turns asking questions to guess what animal it could be.
  6. Rest Stops -
  1. Jump rope
  2. Inflatable beach ball (easy to smoosh and store when you're finished)
  3. Bubbles
  4. Nerf ball
  5. In a pinch, crank up the radio, open the car doors and windows, and have a little outdoor dance-a-thon.


These are just a few snacks that will keep little fingers busy and energy levels up.

  1. Sliced Fruit - apples, oranges, strawberries, mandarins and grapes sliced in half. 
  2. Pretzels
  3. Vege Sticks - carrots, cucumbers, sweet peppers, broccoli, cauliflower and peas cut into strips
  4. Dried Fruit - dried apricots, mango slices or dried figs
  5. Protein Bars
  6. Fruit Bars
  7. Peanut Butter and jelly sandwich



  1. Never climb into the back seat no matter how restless the kids are.   Wait until the car stops in a safe place before attending to them.
  2. Never pick up your baby if they are crying.   Wait until the car is stopped before attending to your child.   Your child should always be belted into their car seat.
  3. Don’t travel with unrestrained pets.   You can buy good safety restraints for pets.

Your 30 pound pet could hurtle across the seat if you stop suddenly.

  1.  Don’t pack the car to the gills so that you can't have a clear view out the rear and side windows/
  2. Double check the car seat to make sure the straps are securely fastened.  Children will play with straps and over time they could loosen.   Remember, the harness system should be tight enough around the child so you cannot pinch a portion of the strap between your fingers or fit more than a finger between your child’s body and the system.


Once you’ve gone through this checklist, your travel time with your children will be a lot smoother.   Get out in nature, play and have fun with your little ones.   Enjoy the summer!
