Weekly Travel Tip – Long Road Trip Boredom Solved

Let’s face it, long road trips or long airplane flights can drive a kid (and everyone around them) batty! There is only so much coloring, destroying, play doo-ing one can do.

I know what you’re thinking. Traveling is about the bonding, plus they get enough TV at home. And you’re absolutely right! But after you’ve bonded for an hour or so on a five hour trip, you’ll be bonded out and ready for a bit of calmness.  And if you’re so worried about TV overdose, minimize the watching at home and try some bonding on your home turf. This way you won’t feel as bad.
