Keep Kids Occupied During Travel By Spreading Out Activities

Plan to take a trip with kids soon? Conde Nast Traveller suggests you keep them busy during the travel portion by only allowing them to start a new activity every 15 minutes. This makes the entertainment you brought last longer as well as teaching them patience.

Janssen Bradshaw explains:

Tell your child they can only pick a new activity every 15-30 minutes (or more or less, depending on their age and the activities). Also package each activity separately, whether in a plastic bag or by wrapping them in crepe paper, which makes even getting the next activity out an activity of its own.

An example is a book that takes a lot of time to go through, such as Where’s Waldo? or I Spy. Another way to help your kids pass the time is to give them snacks that take a few minutes to eat. Conde Nast Traveller recommends raisins or string cheese. For more tips, check out the full post linked below.
