Stop stressing over how the traveling will be over the holidays, and print off this road trip packet instead. Page after page of great ideas for the kids!
Like most families, we travel a lot over the holiday season. And sometimes, that means that the kids in the back are less than patient about getting to our destination. It’s normal. Kids don’t like to sit and be patient that long during this fun time of the year!
To help the time pass quickly, this printable pack is exactly what you need. It’s full of bright and fun pages that will help them put their focus and attention towards the sheets, rather than asking you every five minutes if you’re almost there yet.
I have more Preschool Worksheets to check out, too!
What do I need to pack in the car to use this road trip printable activity?
When packing for a road trip, it is important to include a copy of the road trip printable activity. Any materials such as crayons, coloring pencils, and markers should also be taken along to facilitate the activity.
It is helpful to bring a clipboard or two so that each person can have a designated space to work on their activity. Having a hard service to write on is key!
Furthermore, having snacks and drinks at hand is highly recommended, as both children and adults tend to become peckish during long car rides. Paper towels might also be useful for any spills that may happen during mealtime.
All in all, make sure you have packed everything required for this road trip printable activity before hitting the open roads!
What it includes:
This printable road trip activity includes lots of great pages. Some are:
- road trip scavenger hunt
- this or that?
- coloring sheet
- tic tac toe
- and more!
Make sure to have your pencils and pens handy, and get ready to see the kids actually excited for once about a road trip!
You can even print out more Christmas coloring pages to add to the packet if your road trip is long.
Fun ways to use this printable:
The fun part about this printable is that you can use it in so many different ways. The sheets are there to guide you, but if the kids have other fun ideas of ways to pass the time, make it happen!
These are especially helpful if you’re going to be in the car for several hours.
Sitting in the car and playing ISpy is great for all ages. Everyone can sit in their seats in the car and shout out things that they see to see if others can guess.
Make more tic-tac-toe boards
Since tic tac toe boards are easy to make, take some extra paper and let the kids draw their own so that they can keep playing the games.
Sing Christmas songs
Once the packet is completed and done, it’s time to start singing until you get there! Have everyone shout out their favorite holiday song and sing away!
What are the best road trip snacks?
For the perfect road trip, snacks are just as important as the destination. Sure, you can pick up a bag of potato chips, but if you want to make an adventuring experience out of it, then you need to prepare yourself accordingly!
Consider packing snacks like trail mix, energy bars, and homemade sandwiches. The goal is to bring along items that are not only tasty but keep you energized on long drives.
You may also want to look for recipes that go beyond traditional snack suggestions and become creative instead—like fruit rolls made from fresh fruit purees or veggie crackers with cheese spread.
With all the different combinations out there, you’re sure to find something for everyone’s taste buds!
What is the number one travel tip when traveling with kids?
When it comes to traveling with kids, the number one tip is to make sure that the entire family has a good time. Planning and having a flexible attitude can go a long way toward making this a reality.
Parents should use their research skills to investigate the destination and options for activities once there – both for adults and children.
Scheduling plenty of breaks throughout the travel timeline can help keep everyone’s energy levels up and offer them the chance to rest and refuel.
Doing so will ensure that each family member can return home from their travels feeling happy, relaxed, and enriched by the experience.
