How to Keep Kids Entertained on Family Road Trip

Make a Music Playlist

Get together and have each family member select some road trip music. Create a family road trip playlist where each of you will have your favourite songs playing on the car stereo system for a portion of your family road trip. Enjoy singing along to your favourite songs together during your family road trip.

Play Games

We created a car-based i-Spy game free printable for your kids. This printable activity is the perfect way to keep your kids entertained during a family road trip. Simply print out the i-Spy game board and game pieces, making sure you have one for each kid and enjoy spying cars along the route of your family road trip together.

Bring Books

A family road trip provides an excellent opportunity to freshen up those literacy skills. Have each kid pack a book bag where they have their favorite books, including some that are required reading for school sessions. This will give your kids time to sit quietly in the car and engage in independent reading time during your family road trip.

What should kids bring on a road trip?

When it comes to knowing what kids should bring on a road trip, you’ll have to take into consideration how long your family road trip will be. Our i-Spy game free printable cars edition will keep your kids entertained for quite a bit of time, all the while encouraging them to work together trying to find each car-based item on the i-Spy printable.

Have each of your kids pack one bag per child filled with items that they can play with, read, and enjoy during your family road trip. This bag will help your kids self-entertain all the while making you a happy couple of parents knowing that your kids are enjoying this family road trip.

When it comes to finding creative ways to keep your kids entertained on a family road trip, you’ll need to first think about what your kids enjoy doing the most. Combine the interests that your kids have with activities and creative ideas that will work for a family road trip. Together you can have a fabulous time rejuvenating and reconnecting during a family road trip.
