It’s great to get out of the house and explore, but when you’re traveling long distances with small children, road trips can feel daunting! No matter the distance, they’ll probably still ask “Are we there yet?” before you reach your destination. Never fear – we compiled a list of easy road trip hacks, on-the-go snack ideas and stress-free packing tips to keep your family happy on the go:
Save time and money with a road trip snack tray, organized with fruits, veggies, salty snacks and sweet treats. You can make a large snack tray to pass around the van or create smaller options for the front seat and the back seat.
Repurpose sealable plastic lunch containers or pick up a divided bento box with a lid. These work best for smaller children who might have trouble passing around a tray. The more you can have at hand and ready to go, the less you’ll need to strain and stretch to reach back and help out.
In addition to packing your suitcases, it’s a good idea to stock the car with quick-reach supplies.
