We are the biggest wimps when it comes to road trips. The farthest we’ve ever gone from home with our kid is three hours away, and she’s seven and a half. Try these awesome road trip activities and you may never hear "Are we there yet?" again.

It just seems like a lot of hassle. Trying to keep her entertained and happy through the hours, not wanting to resort to device time for hours on end, worrying that she’ll get sick or we’ll have to stop for bathroom breaks every 50 miles.

Well, this is the year we get over our fear of road trips. We have two — one about five hours and one more than twice that — planned for the next six weeks.

I know she’ll be fine. I’d probably been on a dozen or more eight-hour rides by her age, and I know I care more about making her comfortable and happy than I probably should. But these great road trip activities are sure to help, too.

What I’m Planning

I intend to print out a lot of the printables listed above (especially some scavenger hunts and the picture prompts!), throw in some activity books and actual books, materials for coloring (and maybe some stickers), clay and Wikki Stixs.

Because we only have one kid, I’m loading up a Thirty-One tote with a bunch of stuff and putting it on the seat beside her. Easy peasy, and not so big I can’t move it somewhere else if she needs me to be in the back seat with her.

Do you have any road trip activities your family loves? I definitely need all your tips.
