Sanity Saver Road Trip Tips with Kids

Updated: May 18

Summer time = Road Trips!!


While we love the destination, it can be a headache getting there. Am I right? Last summer was filled with boredom, bickering, dead iPads, and "Are we there yet?".


So this summer, I decided to be a little more proactive and save my sanity! I found this portable travel table at my favorite grocery store, Aldi. You can also find several different ones on Amazon. See link below.

So, take a minute to put these travel kits together and keep it in the car. I promise It will buy you some time and save your sanity. Yes, we bring the iPad too, but we bust those out at the very end of the trip when we really need them.
