‘Are We There Yet?’

Before a 30-hour road trip, I showed our 7-year-old triplets a map to our destination. On a separate sheet of paper, I drew a set of squares for each leg of the trip. The first destination was a five-hour drive, so I drew five squares with the city name next to it. I did this for each city and then taped the chart where the kids could see it during the drive. Each hour, after I colored in a square, our children cheered. This simple travel chart made time more tangible to our kids and kept them from asking, “How much longer?”

Notes to Fellow Travelers

When my family and I took a two-week road trip, my young teens enjoyed it. Here’s one way I made the journey fun for them:

Before the trip, I found about 20 small plastic containers that were attached to key chains (but any small travel container would work). As we drove, we wrote little messages to place inside each container.

The message included an email address — you can create one just for this trip — for people to reply to. We asked questions about the area and their travel tips. Every time we were at a rest stop or hotel, the kids hunted for a good place to leave one of our containers, such as on the side of a picnic table or by an information booth.

It was so much fun to hide the key chains and receive emails from other people who were also traveling, giving tips on good places to stop or fun things to look out for. The kids were so excited every time we got an email reply, and it was interesting to hear about other people’s travels.
