7.Play car games. A favorite of ours is ‘Cops and Vette’s’. One point is given for every police car spotted and two points are given for Corvette’s. But if you call a car and it’s not correct then you deduct points. It even helps to spot that hidden police car before he spots you!
8.Bring plenty of pillows and blankets. Children are more likely to sleep in car if they are comfortable.
9.If you plan to stay somewhere overnight before traveling next day, pack everything you need for night in one bag. That way when you get to hotel you don’t have to unload whole car. I buy biggest Ziploc bags I can find and put my children’s clothes in them and write their name on it. Then I only take what is needed.
10.Check hotels to see if they offer free breakfast. Our favorite hotel to stay in is Holiday Inn. Kids stay and eat free. If we arrive at hotel in evening, they can eat dinner for free and then breakfast next morning. Once again it saves on costs, especially if you pack your own lunch.
I hope these tips help you on your next road trip.
