37 Must-Try Ideas for TRAVELING WITH KIDS!!

Road trip season is upon us and although the destination will be fantastic, the loooong drive there isn’t always so…um, perfect.  We are headed to a few places this summer and even though we have a DVD player, even that gets boring after 3 consecutive movies!  (Ask me how I know……ha! ;) )  My kids are all different ages (9, 7, 5, and almost 2) but they all need stimulation in different ways while sitting on those little bums hour after hour.  So, I’ve been looking for and collecting different ideas to help entertain them, but also to keep everyone comfortable throughout the duration of the trip!  And you guys, if you have any children at all…..I have found some AWESOME ideas that maybe you’ll be excited about too!  I can’t wait to start gathering supplies and tools and get going on this trip.  Because suddenly 5-6 total days of driving in a car doesn’t sound so overwhelming!

Want to see what I’ve found??? Hopefully they’ll help you with your summer travels with kids too! :)
