We're packing up, ready to go on a family holiday for a couple of weeks. I didn't even think about how the kids were going to survive all the travelling until yesterday. I did a quick online search and found these two sites packed full of great travelling with kids ideas!
Here are some of the ideas I found that I'm going to try out:
Foil figurine making - take a roll of aluminium foil and give the kids challenges eg. make a robot out of foil
Car bingo - printable car bingo cards available at www. momsminivan.com
Bubbles - that will be fun!
Tape/Post-Its - pass them to the back seat and let the kids go for it! I'm not expecting to be able to see much out of the back windows :o)
Pipe cleaner creatures - take a long some pipe cleaners so the kids can get creative.
Card games - don't forget the simple old-fashioned games like snap!
Trip journal - simple exercise books are perfect for your children to create memories in.
Have a wonderful trip! (oh, and please share your tips too!)
PS - these posts are going to become even more sporadic over the next few weeks. Have a great Christmas in the meantime - see you next year! xo
