If you spend a lot of time on the road with your children, you know how important it is to keep them content and busy>.

As the driver, you need to focus on the road for everyone’s safety. It’s difficult to do that in a noisy and chaotic vehicle.

Whether you are taking a long road trip or just trying to survive your daily commute, here are some activities to help keep your kids occupied so you are all happy and safe on the road.

  • turn on your kids’ favorite music and sing along
  • listen to books on CD
  • white boards and magnetic boards
  • coloring books, sketch pads, pencils, and crayons
  • electronics (video games, portable DVD player, tablets)
  • play road games (I spy, 20 questions, etc.)
  • easy-to-eat snacks like trail mix, cheese sticks, and granola bars

Consider keeping a tote or backpack for each child in your vehicle. Stock with games, toys, and snacks and replenish as necessary.
