Traveling with kids

It won’t be long until a lot of families will hit the road for summer vacation trips. There will be some who will drive or pull an RV and stay at campgrounds. Others will drive a family car and stay at a motel or maybe even do some tent camping.

Whichever way you travel with your family, if you have children you already know you’ll be hearing “Are we there yet? How much longer? I’m bored. She touched me. He made a face at me.” Those comments and even more will come ringing out from the back portions of your vehicle as your children get bored with riding in a car or van.

When we traveled, when the children were young, we took along snacks, beverages, and little games the kids could play. Things like Travel Bingo were a big hit. (This was way before there were DVD players in cars.) We also took coloring books and crayons.

We didn’t have a computer back then so free printable travel games didn’t exist for us. However, they do for you. Visit the linked site to find 35 different and entertaining travel games that you can print out for free. File them away until you are making a trip somewhere, even if it’s just a couple of hours worth of riding in the car, and surprise your kids with these fun ways to stay busy while on the road.
