Dear Diary. Every parent traveling with children probably heard the question, Are we there yet? To keep kids busy on long road trips you have to get a bit creative. Sometimes toys, cartoons and coloring books don’t keep children’s attention for long. Here are five ways to entertain a toddler during holiday road trip. 1. Peek-a-Moo: Despite the falling temps, my daughter and I visit the zoo regularly. We talk about the different animals and mimic the silly sounds. When we’re not at the popular attraction, we play pretend and make up a game called Peek-a-Moo. It’s pretty simple. Just swap out the traditional game Peek-a-Boo and replace the ending with an animal sound. We cover our eyes and call out, Peek-a-Baaa, Peek-a-Squeak, Peak-a-Roar and much more. 2. Story Time Tag: Often, I must sit on my suitcase to zip it shut, so I can’t pack all of my daughter’s favorite books. Thankfully, we typically travel with my nephews, and they keep my child entertained by telling her stories. Like the game of tag, we take turns telling the tale, and then tag someone to take over. We ask questions to their younger kids, allowing them the opportunity to be a full participant. Click here for more fun, family activities.
