Long car trips with your toddler – how to survive…

  • Cd’s – kids songs, fun songs, a wide variety of things (Lil’ Duck loves Veggie Tales CD’s).
  • Portable DVD player – with DVD’s of favorite shows of course.
  • Some people drive at night so they will sleep.
  • Take frequent breaks – let them out to run around when you get gas, etc.
  • Put a soft basket of toys by the car seat within reach – use new toys or toys that have been retired that now will seem new.
  • Put a snack/cup holder on the car seat.
  • Point out things outside, play little games, talk to them

    Do you mind if I link to an article here in the future?
