Road Trip Travel Tips from Little Passports



Do you do road trips with your kids? We haven't really gone very far with our toddler, yet, but I certainly intend to take the little guy somewhere longer than a nap, one of these days. Where will we go? Maybe Los Angeles, because they have some pretty cool dinos in their Natural History Museum. Or maybe we go camping someplace cool...

Hitting the road with your kiddos? You can check out Little Passports Travel Tips!

“Are we there yet?” was a term coined by the family road trip! While new technology and toys may have silenced backseat conversations, spending time together in the car can still be a great opportunity for family bonding and learning. Even if you plan on bringing the latest gadget to pass the time, try saving them for the end of your trip when everyone is tired and cranky!

Here are some ideas from Little Passports that are sure to make the time fly by (or at least go by a little faster):


  • Save your most recent Little Passports delivery from Sam and Sofia for your road trip so your kids to learn and explore during the car ride.


  • Say goodbye to your trusted GPS! Bring back the memory of car trips as a kid and use a map! The night before your trip bring out an actual map (if you can find one!) to show your intended route to your child. Even better, copy the map and pull out a highlighter so your child can follow along – and let you know when you missed a turn.


  • Build in time for pit stops – and if time allows, make short stops that incorporate fun activities along the way. Everyone will need a bathroom break and a meal, but if that happens at a place right off the highway and near playground it can be better for everyone! The kids will get fed – and burn off some energy.


  • Hit up a dollar store before you leave and stock up on small toys and activities to give to your kids along the way. Every hour let your child choose a surprise – a great incentive for good behavior! You can even wrap the toys for an added element of excitement.

  1. I love the ideas of small toys and activities. I also liked stopping and letting my daughter take pictures. Another thing I did was let her take the music she enjoyed listening too. Stopping for bathroom breaks is a very important issue that people sometimes forget to plan into their trip.
