Tips for travelling
- Pack some treats (crackers, grapes, fruit snacks, popcorn, etc), along with empty ziploc bags and paper cups so that you can pass individual servings to the kids in the back.
- Also pack plenty of water bottles. Everybody has their own water bottle next to their seat, and you can fill up on the occasional pit stop.
- Stop whenever necessary, but don’t stop for very long. Everyone can get out of the car and stretch whenever you stop.
- Sing! turn up the music and belt it out!
- Listen to an audio book. It’s amazing how fast the time goes when you’re immersed in a story.
- Rotate seats. http://essayclick.net/. Take turns in the back seat every once in a while. Changing seats seems to help break the monotony.
