How to prepare for a road trip with children

  1. 1. No matter where you are going, whether it’s to the Grand Canyon or Grandma’s house, road trips can take a lot out of you – especially if you have kids. We have compiled some great tips for you and your family to make it through any road trip.
  2. 2. The planning has to start before everyone piles into the car. If you are using a child car seat, make sure it has been installed correctly. Double check that everyone is wearing his or her seat belts.
  3. 3. A key decision to make is when would you like to do most of the driving? If you leave early in the morning or later in the evening your kids may end up sleeping through a majority of the trip – helping you to concentrate on road.
  4. 4. Before heading out, plot out a few places to stop and eat. Having a meal will help break up the monotony of the trip for your kids. Also, knowing where you are going to stop in advance will help your family from being stuck miles and miles away from the nearest restaurant.
  5. 5. Pack a bag of books, games, action figures, and any toys that will keep your kids entertained. One thing to remember, don’t bring anything that will annoy you. If their videogames have sound, consider bringing headphones for them.
  6. 6. One thing you don’t want when you are stuck in the car for long periods of time – restless kids. Avoid snacks and drinks with high amounts of sugar or caffeine. Before hitting the road, make a bag of healthy snacks for everyone in the car to share – peanut butter celery sticks, low-fat cheese and crackers, or lettuce wraps with lunchmeat are all great options and kid favorites.
  7. 7. Car games can keep everyone from being bored. Play the games you played when you were a kid or go online and find new games that can become a family tradition. Classic road trip games include Slug-a-Bug, I Spy, and 20 Questions.
  8. 8. Pillows, and blankets can be lifesavers. The more comfortable your children are the less likely they are to be upset or grumpy. Bathroom breaks around the two-hour mark can also allow everyone to stretch his or her legs. Have the kids run around for a couple minutes, so that they can settle in for more car time.
  9. 9. For over 50 years, Scenic Airlines has been the standard in aerial sightseeing tours. They were the first company to offer an airborne tour over the Grand Canyon. Over 300,000 people a year fly with Scenic Airlines, it’s no wonder that their name has become synonymous with the Grand Canyon and exceptional customer service.
