This week we went on our first road trip vacation of more than 4 hours. If I am completely honest I was very nervous. I was concerned about my 4 year old and 7 year old getting bored and driving me crazy. I decided preparation was going to be my survival mode. I decided to head to the dollar store and see what kind of ideas I could find to keep the kids happy for an extended trip. Here are some of my favorites for planning for a road trip.
