Your kids have worked hard getting up early to catch their bus, or walk the sidewalk trail to that big brick school building for the past nine months. They have sat through lecture after lecture and brought home mountains of homework and projects. Now that the sun is shining brighter in the evenings and the temperatures are rising, school is ready to let out for the summer, and your kids are ready to take advantage of it!
No doubt you and your family have already started to plan out some of the amazing road trips that you will embark upon this summer. While a family vacation can be extremely fun and bring the family together, it is important to consider the portion of your road trip or vacation that takes place in the car.
In order to help families prepare for their next road trip, RadRoadTrips.com has created an activity book especially for kids. This book was designed to keep kids entertained and engaged in your road trip while they are in the car. Not only will they be busy solving puzzles, but they will also engage the entire family in games, questions, get to know you activities, etc.
Don’t let the drive to your vacation fall out of your radar this summer. Make the road trip an important part of your family memories.
Feel free to download the PDF version of our activity book and print it out for your children. If your printer supports booklet printing, it can make a handy little 5.5 x 8.5″ booklet. Whether or not your printer can support that type of printing, you can also print out an 8.5 x 11″ version of the booklet with the same PDF file.
All you have to do is print out the book and staple it together. Make sure the kids bring a few pencils and maybe some crayons or colored pencils. Print out a copy of the book for yourself also as you may be engaged with the children as they work through their booklet.
The booklet does contain a page of coupons that you can use if you choose. Simply fill in the reward that your child can earn without coupon. It can be as simple as earning a snack, a treat, a happy meal at your local McDonald’s, or even another activity book that you may have purchased for extended vacations.
Remember, a family road trip is a great tool to build memories that will last with your children their entire lives. Not only will they look upon your trip with fond memories, but it can build the relationships between you and the children today.
