What To Do on a 4000 Mile Road Trip

Posted by on June 11, 2012

We’re gearing up for a long road trip traveling through 11 states and visiting lots of family along the way…with three little kids. What to do? For the first time, I’ve made a daily travel activity schedule that I’ll be sharing with Kaelem and Quincy. I hope this will help them beat boredom.

Travel Activities

  • 1 hour- Free play with toys
  • 1 hour- Read/look at books
  • 30 minutes- Family game (scavenger hunt, animal game, alphabet game)
  • 1 hour- Listen to music on ipod
  • 30 minutes- School work (math book, writing assignment, geography with atlas, art)
  • 1 hour- Read aloud or audiobook
  • 30 minutes- Family songtime
  • 1 hour- Rest, listen to Mama and Daddy’s music
  • 1.5 hours- Movie
  • Sleep

We’ll see how this actually shakes out, but I think it’s a good start. I’d love to hear any ideas you might have!

We’re also working on travel meal plans and playlists, so feel free to share those too. :)
