7 Kid-Friendly Activities For Road Trips

Road Trip

Every few months our family road trips to visit my in-laws a state away. My oldest is almost three so I can’t always bank on a long nap as our car ride entertainment and thus, have begun collecting the best (and simplest) ideas to make our road trips more enjoyable for everyone. Take a peek at my collection for our upcoming trip!
