Hands On Activity Bags for Kids: The Key to Road Trip Success!

When traveling with children, the key to making any road trip successful is being able to keep the kids occupied, happy and entertained!  It doesn't matter what age the children are... if they aren't happy, everyone in the car is going to be unhappy! 

Two of my favorite ways to pass the time while traveling with kids are road games and activity bags!

What you decide to include in each activity bag highly depends on the age of the children you are traveling with.  Of course, each bag needs to be age appropriate: games, snacks, candy, activity books, coloring books and toys are among the most popular items!

One place that I can always count on to carry the perfect items to create fun-filled road trip survival kits is Oriental Trading!

My most recent delivery included so many fun items for our upcoming 5 1/2 hour Spring Break road trip with a car full of teenage girls!
