We travel a lot as a family, so it is crucial to us that our travels be efficient and affordable.One way we are able to cut back on our travel expenses is by taking road trips whenever we can.
Pack Snacks- Packing snacks is crucial for planning a peaceful trip with kids! My kids Veggie Straws love Sensible Portions for car rides, beach trips, picnics, and every thing in between! Veggie Straws have 30% less Fat than Chips, with no artificial flavors or preservatives. Veggie Straws are also Vegan, Kosher have no Trans fats and no Cholesterol (which also makes them the perfect play date snack.)
Pack magnets and cookie sheets- This is the perfect car activity, I’ve got to say!
Don’t fight the screen time- Just embrace it on the car ride, if you can be intentional with what you choose to watch television wise and quality apps, and educational apps can be a great way to spend the time.
Plan to stop at parks and children’s museums- plan your stops to your destination based around fun places to stop off with the kids to burn off some energy.
Get some fun audio books for the whole family.
Go into the trip with lowered expectations. If there’s anything I’ve learned traveling with little kids it’s to keep expectations low to avoid disappointment.
