This summer I feel like the Slaughters have been on the go!! We’re finally back at home and STAYING put! But…I thought I’d share the Slaughters Top Three Road Trip Essentials. These are not crazy items, but with only these three things my kiddos can hang in the car! For a long time, I should add. Our trip to Missouri was nine hours. Other than Bowen initially asking to “Get Awt, Mama” for the first couple hours (ha!), they did great!
I always pack a snack bag with goodies and drinks. On the way to MO, I put this bag in the seat next to me so I could pass anything easily.
Each kiddo gets their own blanket. When they’re sitting in the car it’s always cozier with a blanket. 🙂 I found some older pictures of the kiddos in the car with their blankets.
Look how LITTLE!!
If they fall asleep, I think a blanket helps them sleep longer too. 🙂
My kiddos love watching movies. Who doesn’t, right?? On trips they take turns choosing a movie and this seriously keeps them SO happy! How did our parents take us on long road trips without one??
I also pack a small bag of little toys. When Bowen got fussy, I’d hand him a toy back and that would keep him busy for a while.
Like I said, definitely nothing crazy on the list, but the Slaughter kiddos can HANG in the car for a long time if they have those three items!! If you have any great road trip essentials, PLEASE leave a comment! It will help us all out!! Thank you!!
