A long car ride can be ideal for quality family time, interesting conversations and entertaining activities—if you make it a screen-free trip!
The most important tip to keep in mind when taking a road trip: Don’t be afraid of a little boredom. It’s natural and okay for kids to experience occasional bouts of boredom on a long car ride. A car trip is the perfect opportunity for children to spend some time in their own heads for a while. Looking out at the scenery, they can let their imaginations roam and experience a little wonder.
That said, it’s still always helpful to have some fun screen-free play ideas to help make the miles pass!
