Road Trip Hacks For the Whole Family

12:56:00 PM

Hey y'all!
Only 26 days until I am relaxing at the lake, no work, no stress, no school no anything but time with my family. I can't tell you just how excited I am!
Every year my family and I take 10 days off and head to a small town or lake for the Feast of Tabernacles and it is literally a blast from start to end!
This year, traveling will be a tad different. The kids are older now so they will need more, want to do more and for no absolute reason, just be louder. Usually when the kids and I are in the car for more than an a hour, they start to get squirmy. So in natural mom fashion I hit up Pinterest for some ideas on easy ways I can keep the kids under control and happy for our 3 hour car ride ( not at all long but ya know... kids).
There are so many amazing pinners out there that have idea after idea after idea and these will definitely come in hand!
So check out these awesome inspirations that  I will be incorporating in the next few weeks!

  4. Perfect. A family favorite in our home is the ABC game, you have to look for the letters in alphabetical order, 1st one to Z wins. To make it more challenging for our older children we only use upper case.
