Simple Tricks to Save Your Sanity During Family Road Trips! by Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds

Heading out on a family road trip? So fun, but the car can be confining for kids. If you plan ahead, it can be lots of fun! 

  • Keep your car stocked with all kinds of fun things for them to do: special books to read, washable art supplies so they can draw, small toys they don't usually get to play with, and other activities you know they enjoy. 
  • Don't forget special snacks and comfort items, like soft blankets and plush animals to cuddle with. 

Keeping kids busy and happy cuts down on fussing and fighting with siblings, which means you save your sanity while on the road!
