The best way to help kids fight car trip boredom is to give them plenty of things to do and their own space to do it. This could be as simple as box divider in the middle seat, filled with toys and a surface to play on.
Backseat activity stations
Bathroom organisers make fantastic activity stations. We’ve filled them up with drinks and snacks, books and toys, but you could add a tablet in there too. We thought’d be handy to have a separate pouch for rubbish as well.
KEEP OFF THE SUNNY SIDE
This is a handy way to keep the sun from getting too strong. We’ve just attached two suction caps to a tea towel for an easy sunblind. You could do the same thing to make a cosy sleep space by swapping the tea towel for a pillow.
Are we there yet?
Flip the “are we there yet?” question to the front seat, by putting a map of the journey onto the ceiling. Add some pens and kids can map out the route from the back seat.
TIME FOR A BREAK
Of course no matter how many activities you have inside the car, nothing beats giving everyone a stretch and some fresh air every couple of hours. Come see how you can pack the trunk ready for picnics and playtime.
