Summer is winding down, but that doesn't mean your road trips come to an end! We take several road trips through the year, not just during summer. A successful road trip in our eyes means everyone arrives happy! This is much easier to do with snacks, drinks, and plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained.
Of course, we'll have the DVD player in the car and Charlie has a tablet, but screens don't entertain little ones the entire time. We created a travel binder that can stay in the car that is perfect for road trips.
To create your travel binder, you'll need a zip-around binder to store all of your activities for the road. Inside that binder, you're going to put a couple of clear zipper pouches and clear sheet protectors. Now, grab a some dry erase crayons, an eraser, and some printable sheets and you're all set!
I've created 3 free printables for your new travel binder!
My suggestion is to use a laminator to laminate any sheets you would like to reuse often. I sent all 3 of my sheets that I'm sharing with you through my laminator to preserve them. By laminating them, Charlie can use the dry erase crayons on them, wipe them off, and reuse them over and over again!
If you'd like to just print out some sheets to color once or twice with dry erase crayons, you can slide them into a sheet protector. Some great sites to grab free coloring pages and activities: LEGO Marvel Superheroes, Disney Family, and Crayola.
If you're really interested in the BEST Road Trip Ever, enter to win “The Best Road Trip Ever” sweepstakes! The more travel stories that are shared, the higher value of the prize car! As of right now, they're already up to the 4th tier car, which means you could win a 2015 Ford Escape! Wouldn't that make for an awesome start to your road trip!
Now that I've got you thinking about that new car for your road trip, you'll need some snacking supplies! You know how we feel about our snacks! At ACME right now, there are a ton of snacks perfect for road trips. You'll find them labeled Best Road Trip Ever under the normal price sticker.
Personally, a Mountain Dew is essential to me surviving a road trip (or any day, really). Some people are coffee people, but I need a Dew. I do like cans best, but they don't travel as well, so we buy bottles for the road. The boys get water or juice pouches, so some Capri Suns were a great item to grab before hitting the road. Everyone can use a Gatorade, so the little bottles are perfect for travelling. As far as snacks go, we bought some individual pre-portioned snack bags for the boys because they were on sale, but I also grabbed some Wheat Thins (they are definitely one of my favorite munchies), some caramel Quaker Popped Mini Rice Snacks and some Snickers Bites (we'll keep them hidden upfront with us).
Do you have any favorites you bring on your road trips? We like to have a little bit of everything!
Be sure to share your Best Road Trip ever for a chance to win big! I'd love to hear about your dream travels!
