Elizabeth City, NC – Do you love taking road trips in your Perry Auto Group car but you have young kids? Well now you can try out our road trip tips for keeping kids happy! Now you no longer have to stress out about how you’re going to keep your kids occupied for those long hours in the car because we’ve got some tips for you.
1.) Make sure your kids are dressed in comfortable clothes. You’ll want to dress them in something they like such as sweat pants and a zip up hoodie so that they aren’t feeling restricted while they sit in the car for long periods of time. You my even want to bring something fun like fuzzy socks that they can wear on their feet instead of shoes.
2.) Bring lots of healthy snacks but don’t be afraid to bring a few junky snacks as well. Kids, like you, want to have some junk food on vacation from time to time and it will keep them happy to be able to eat fun snacks to tide them over on the trip.
3.) Pack some colored pencils and crayons for the journey! Giving your kids coloring books or even asking them to draw some pictures of what they see around them or what they think your vacation spot will look like is a great way to help them lose track of time. You could even save the pictures for scrapbooks or keepsakes!
4.) Buy some inexpensive toys from the dollar store and wrap them up, you can give them to your kids every hour or so as a surprise that will keep them extra busy! They’ll be so excited when they see the presents that they’ll forget all about having to sit on a long car ride.
5.) Plan out rest stop areas where you can park and let your kids run around for a little bit. This is sure to tire them out and it gives them a chance to stretch their legs or use the bathroom.
6.) Bring books! If your kids are too young to read then bring books with audio CDs in them so that they can follow along in the car without you having to read to them. If you have things like Leap Frog or Tag Reading System then those are great to bring along as well!
With these road trip tips for keeping kids happy you’re sure to have a successful family vacation! Your kids will be thanking you for making their road trip experience fun and entertaining and you’ll be thanking us for giving you the tips!
