How to Travel with Kids in a Car?
No matter what kind of travelling you choose because if kids are involved it always equals hassle. Unfortunately, there is no universal rule or advice that will make you child calm and interested in good behavior, but there are some entertainment tips that will simplify traveling process. Below you can find some of them.
Road Trips: Packing
If you have ever tried travelling with a kid then you know that it is not always a fun fest. But the moment you plan to travel or begin packing your trip begins.
• If you are travelling by car and do not want to have lots f items inside of a beautiful cabin of your new Ford Mustang then you need to minimize the number of packages and things inside. Pack everything you take with into a big bag and put it into the trunk and at the same time have a small bag of the most important items, such as changing clothes, PJs or beloved toys in the cabin. In this way you guarantee that whatever you kid decided to need during the ride you will have it in hand.
• Take your kid’s favorite blanket and pillow if you have space for it. If you have an overnight sleep during the trip then these things will definitely work great for you.
• Keep in mind that kids like spilling and messing everything around so do not forget to take some napkins and wet napkins to clean all that mess.
How to Survive the Ride
• Long rides always make kids hungry so you need to be prepared for that. Take snacks and sodas that will keep everyone busy. But make sure not to give them too much sugar because it will boost their energy and you are the one who will have to deal with it.
• Beat the boredom with various activities. You need to get some phones, video games, books, or even laptop with CDs because, again we remind you, you have to keep them busy as much as possible. Do not forget headphones because you do not want to listen to all the cartoon sounds during the whole trip.
• Try to tune out the tears. It is pretty hard to do, but this is essential. After you have given a kid all the snacks, played all possible games, talked to him or her, and engaged in all possible activities, there will be a point when he or she, regardless of any circumstances, will decide to go out and start crying if not. Experts explain that it is hard to mentally overcome it, but if you know that you kid is safe, full, and is simply bored then you just need to wait until he or she soothes themselves.
• And our last tip is to choose your toys wisely. If you have just purchased a new BMW Hybrid then you do not want it to be scratched or damaged in any way. So make sure to chose toys that will not make any harm to the car and at the same time will entertain your little baby.
