Spring break is right around the corner and we have a sneaky feeling a big family road trip might be on the calendar. Make this best (and most stress free) spring break yet with these helpful spring break road trip tricks.

Snack Time

Avoid unnecessary stops by making make snack packs that will keep everyone full and won’t make a mess. Pack all the snacks in one large container or give everyone their own small container and let them fill it with the snacks they please. Don’t forget to pack a car trash can for wrappers and a roll of paper towels for spills. Don’t have a car trash can? A cereal storage container will work in a pinch.

Trust In the GPS

Nothing puts a damper on the ultimate road trip than a fight between you and backseat (or passenger) drivers. Keep things calm by investing in a trustworthy GPS. Putting a navigation system in charge keeps you and your loved ones from arguing over whether or not you should have turned at that target 5 blocks back. If your vehicle comes equipped with a navigation system the hard work is done for you. Simply input your destination and enjoy an argument free drive. Of course you can always use your smartphone as your GPS as well. If take the smartphone route, we suggest purchasing a car mounted holder like these here and an auxiliary cord like these here if your vehicle does not come equipped with Bluetooth connectivity.

Document It

Gather up your old smartphones or video cameras and tell the kids they are in charge of making a road trip documentary. Give each child a phone or camera and tell them they can record anything they want and that at the end of the trip you will all watch the footage as a family. This not only makes the children feel important, but keeps you from having to entertain them every second of the day. Beware though, sneaky children are sure to catch some embarrassing road trip lip syncing. Be sure to pack extra chargers for the devices and memory cards if necessary.
