Camp Entertainment :-
The name of the game is to keep kids entertained. To make activities accessible, load up a tote to place between their car seats filled with easy car activities. Pack a small bag with surprises to be doled out as needed. Other than wanting to change activities every five minutes .Well-planned bag of goodies is just the right entertainment for the road.

- Stuffed animal
- Crayons / Coloured pencils
- Colouring books
Camp Snacks :-
In addition to keeping kids entertained, it is important to keep everyone fed. It’s necessary to pack a lot of snacks. Individual portions are important on the road. So plastic zip-top bags are quite handy. Each night, fill the plastic bags from large bags of snacks. The large bags stays in the back of the car, while the small packs sat up front where you could pass them out as needed. A note about drinks. Limited water intake while traveling, or you will stop every 30 minutes. But keeping insulated bottles (that won’t spill) on hand is a lifesaver. With insulated bottles kids (and adults) have cold water all day. Just fill with hotel ice at night and refill with bottled water as needed.
