If you want to have fun without turning your children boisterous, try inventing your own family road trip stories! Similar to campfire stories, you could up the ante by alternating who gets to say the next sentence, picking topics you all enjoy or making things rhyme. This one is sure to stretch their imagination and if you would like some quiet time afterwards, get them to illustrate the stories with their very own pictures.
CD’s or a loaded iPods can be a life saver for when the Radio gets on your nerves. Alternatively, get your hands on an Audio Book that everyone can enjoy and don’t forget to pack kid friendly written books as well! After all, everybody needs some quiet time.
