This summer, we are “hitting the road” – and providing you with some fantastic traveling resources along the way! Every Thursday, right here on our blog, we’ll give you the inside scoop from three top-rated blogger moms on their favorite tips and tricks for traveling with kids. This week, we’re getting some tips from Tiffany (Peanut Blossom) as she shares her tips for keeping kids entertained while traveling.

In her blog post, Tiffany shares 3 tips that will make traveling with kids stress-free (and even fun!) As she prepared for her own 8-hour road trip, she focused on:

1) Keeping it Clean: This means starting, literally, with a “clean slate” in your car. A cluttered mess will only become messier while on-the-road, so ensure  you have a system for where everything, including garbage, will go.

2) Making a Comfortable Environment for Kids: Propped feet, familiar friends, and and sweet treats will help ease any travel anxiety or discomfort for kids. See how Tiffany provided a safe and cozy environment for her kids during their 8-hour drive here.

3) Providing Entertainment: From music to travel games, Tiffany shares some great tips on keeping kids from asking “Are we there yet?” 500 times (though they may still ask 50 times. They are kids, after all!)

What are your sanity-saving tips for making the traveling process an enjoyable one? Share with us in the comments below, or join the conversation on Facebook.

    So you wonder what a long trip is…..HHHMMM from Helena Montana to a small mountain town in Oaxaca state in Mexico…5 days and 4 night on the road. It is a long trip. We put in longer hours now that our kids aren’t super small…they will be 5 and 7 1/2 (as my daughter likes to say) this summer when we drive south.
