It’s road trip season! Pack the car, grab the family and head out on the road less traveled! Now, we just need to keep you sane as you travel from destination to destination.

We all know each destination is magical and filled with family fun, but sometimes it’s the journey that is less than ideal. If you’re looking to keep the kids entertained and limit the amount of screen time they have in the car check out some of the fun activities below.

And don’t forget about the song that never ends! This will keep the kids entertained for hours!

The Song That Never Ends

This is the song that never ends.
It goes on and on my friends.
Someone started singing it not knowing what it was,
and they’ll continue singing it forever just because.

Activity Countdown Paper Chain

Every 30 minutes or hour the kids get to take a ring off the chain. Each ring has an activity inside. Get creative! Get instructions here.
