Last year I shared 10 incredible tips for your next road trip – see it HERE.
One of the reasons why I wrote that post and created the printable was because our little family was going to go on an epic road trip from South Florida to Tennessee.
I knew I needed to be armed with some good ideas to help us SURVIVE.
One of the ideas that I took from that list that helped us the most is what I am sharing here today!
This idea gives kids a visual that helps them understand and break down just how many hours they have traveled and how many are left before the final destination. It provides a super easy way to answer the “Are we there yet?” question that inevitably rears its ugly head during the drive. 🙂
All I did was hang a piece of ribbon from one side of the car to the other – using the handles as a good place to attach it all with some tape.
Then I taped cut-out numbers on top of the ribbon counting the hours we would be in the car – with a stop at Mom-Mom’s halfway (woot woot!).
I added a little cut-out car that we moved every time an hour passed.
The kids loved it!
And because I am not super organized, I thought to do this about 3 minutes before we pulled out of the driveway of our house – so don’t be too impressed! It came together quickly and ended up being the BIGGEST lifesaver!
What are your family’s best tips for road trips???
Ha! Love it!!! Thanks for sharing this genius idea!
