Here are some simple tips to create your road trip for an enjoyable and safe trip.

Create a list of items that you will need. This will involve first aid kit, foods, drinks, and lots of toys and games, portable playstation (PSP) if you have, reading materials like books and magazines, a transportable DVD so your kids can watch their preferred movies while on the road.
Make sure that the food you are taking are healthy. Too much sugar can make the kids hyper and wear you done….FAST. Remember, this is a calming vacation and you want to avoid the kids getting tired or consistently asking you when you are going to arrive.
In addition to that, if you are travelling with a baby and small kids, don’t forget to bring diapers, wet tissues and baby powders to freshen them up. They will surely be very dirty while inside the car as kids will always ask for drinks and food.
While pumping for gasoline, allow your kids to go to the bathroom to freshen up and straighten up their legs. Rest for at least 15 minutes before heading to your next destination.

Long travel can be fun but you have to be equipped with things that kids like. So the next time you travel, you know what to bring!
