Fun Road Trip Games and Ideas
Going on a road trip? I am a big supporter of NO electronics in the car, even on long road trips. There are SO many things for kids to be doing instead of zoning out with electronics, including having great discussions with their parents! Some of our best conversations with our kids have been when we have them "trapped" in the car! This website will give you lots of fun ideas, including activities, games, songs, travel puzzles, tools and templatesprintables and free activity books to take with you on your road trip.
