Backseat Road Trip Fun

7 Jul

From your youngsters asking the constant “Are we there yet?” question to them kicking the backs of the front seats, road trips can be incredibly frustrating. So, we have put together a list of ideas to keep your children occupied in the backseat.

Drawing

Art is always a great way to keep children occupied, but it is often difficult to do in the car. We suggest keeping the backseat art projects simple and sticking with drawing. The LEGO® Journal is perfect for car rides. Snap on a LEGO® Marker and your child is ready to go. If you prefer for your youngster not to use markers in the car, let him or her pass the time by drawing on an Etch-a-Sketch®. Your child will love drawing pictures for you on the long ride.

Building

Building is also a fantastic tool for keeping children occupied in the car. Your child will love building with the Romper Room™ Popoids™ Building Set. The building pieces in this set connect to each other, so they are easy to work with in the car. If you have a little one that is not quite old enough for building, encourage him or her to crinkle Baby Paper with his or her hands. Your baby can bend and make noise with Baby Paper just as older children can with the building set. Encourage your child to explore with his or her hands to pass the time in the car.

Playing Games

Playing games is a classic way to pass the time on road trips. We suggest playing traditional car games, such as iSpy and 20 Questions, as a family. These games will keep everyone occupied for a while. Mad Libs® The Game is also perfect for long car rides. The game is fun for both kids and adults, so the whole family can enjoy making funny sentences and laughing together. Entertain your children by playing new and classic games while you travel.

Eliminate the headache of traveling and show your children how traveling can be fun with these road trip activity ideas. We hope you enjoy your road trips this summer!
