Plan Games for Your Children to Play  
Create an activities pack with supplies like colored paper, colored pencils and stickers to use in the car, restaurants and downtime at the hotel. Other family favorites include the license-plate game, where each child keeps a list of all the different states plates they see during the drive. Or, consider doing a travel scavenger hunt! Provide passengers with a list of items like a red sports car, a maple tree, a blue semi truck and have them mark off what they see. You can even create games as you go! Encouraging children to keep an eye out for native animals, birds and plants along the way is educational and entertaining!
