The discussion of a family road trip conjures a myriad of images.
Stopping for tasty local cuisine
Memorable family time
Ah, seasoned parents, how quickly we forget the other side of a road trip with kids.
Fighting in the back seat
Disagreement on where to stop for lunch
And SO MANY bathroom breaks
As a mom of four, I’ve discovered that preparation goes a long way with road trips. I realize that the mere concept of preparation flies against the grain of what we want a road trip to be. Spontaneous. And while no amount of preparation will extinguish all of the “Are we there yet?” questions, a bit of forethought will lead to a happier and more successful family trip.
Regardless if the trip is planned three months in advance or three days (last month we planned a road trip in twenty four hours), two key elements that I always consider are 1) snacks and 2) road trip games.
Of course, we always play the traditional car games like “I Spy” and “Guess the License Plate,” but printable games like this Road Trip Tic Tac Toe are a fun way to pass the time. Plus, they stash easily in the car in a door compartment or behind the seat.
Instead of pens and pencils, we use our snacks that I pick up from Walmart, like the new Kellogg’s® Wild Berry Froot Loops® Cereal, as game pieces.
The Wild Berry Froot Loops® are new at Walmart, and they have more of a berry aroma and taste than traditional Froot Loops. They work well as Road Trip Tic Tac Toe playing pieces because the brightly colored Wild Berry Froot Loops ®also include star shapes instead of only circles. One player can choose a circle, and the other player can choose the star.
To grab the printable for your next road trip, right click on the image below to save it to your computer. Once saved, print it off using your home printer in your desired playing card size. While laminating is optional if you have the resources to laminate the cards, it will make them durable for many road trips to come.
Small cups work well in cup holders for securing more than just a drink! I purchased these small reusable cups at Walmart as well. Walmart is a one-stop shop when preparing for road trips. I can typically grab everything that I need in one place!
Of course, Wild Berry Froot Loops® aren’t just for road trips. Try them for a quick breakfast option, too. Hey, my husband has even been known to have cereal at night a time to two.
