Oh, summer road trips. Long hours spent on the road, fun trips to amusement parks and sightseeing stops, my sister and I fighting in the backseat…nothing says summer vacation more than a family road trip. If your family will be hitting the road this summer or even flying to an adventurous location, I’ve decided to create a list of awesome boredom busters to give your kids some entertainment during those endless hours in the backseat. So buckle up, because I guarantee this list of travel activities will keep your kids occupied during traffic jams or long lines at the airport.
This list of crazy amazing summer crafts for kids contains not only exciting travel games, but free printable activity sheets, easy art projects, and ways to keep your kids (and car) organized. Most importantly, I’ve included a list of relatively mess-free snacks that are travel-friendly, so that your kids won’t be asking you to stop at every McDonald’s you pass. This list of travel activities is literally everything you could ask for!
I’d love to hear how you keep your kids entertained during summer vacation below in the comments, whether you have DIY craft ideas, fun and easy snack recipes, or organization tips. Here’s wishing your family happy traveling!
