Ready for your road trip? Here are my list of musts when traveling with kids!

  1. Bring lots of snacks and juice. 
  2. Install the YouTube app on your phone. God bless Curious George videos! 
  3. Bring child-friendly tech, such as Leap Frog products loaded with games. 
  4. Carry earplugs in your purse. 
  5. Bring favorite stuffed toys and blankets for cuddling. 
  6. Have extra clothes in a diaper bag. 
  7. Play classical music; it always calms my boys down in the car. 
  8. Make lots of pit stops so kids can stretch their legs. 
  9. Keep books and coloring books in the car.
  10. Last thing: Pack patience and enjoy!
