Surviving a Road Trip with Your Preschooler

July 6, 2017 by admin6

Do you hear the call of the open road? A road trip can be a great way to explore, clear your head, and enjoy a bit of freedom. It’s also an affordable way to take a mini-vacation over a long weekend. If you have a preschooler, however, you might think your days of road trips are  behind you. With a little planning, however, you can still enjoy the freedom of the winding road.

First and foremost, be sure to set reasonable daily goals. Taking a road trip doesn’t have to mean logging as many miles as possible in a single day. If you have a preschooler, you’ll want to take plenty of breaks and allow enough time to rest each night. You might not get as far, but you also won’t have to deal with a fussy little one.

Next, remember to factor in entertainment. Keeping your preschooler entertained and engaged will help them see the fun in road trips. Print maps to color, pack binoculars that they can use, take pictures, and document your adventure. This will keep everyone happy and instill a love of adventure as well.

A hungry kid is an unhappy kid, so be sure to pack plenty of snacks. Include their favorite treats along with items that are more substantial. Make it more fun by putting surprise foods in brown bags that you give them when they complain about a rumbling tummy. This is an entertaining way to cure hunger.

And don’t be afraid to use technology to your advantage. You can take pictures and make videos along the way, track your trek on GPS, or watch a favorite movie when it’s time to take a nap. Your youngster will like the distractions and you’ll enjoy a bit of quiet time.
