Dear Readers,

Traveling with children by car can be a real challenge for any parent. But you have something special on a long car journey that is hard to find anywhere else. 

What you have is time. Lots of time with each other. Time to spend together without all the distractions of everyday life. Time to talk, sing, read to each other and play games.  Time for making memories. Itís precious time, so donít waste it. Read more of "Before You Begin"...

My family went on a lot of road trips when I was a child. I can remember playing lots of these games on the road. ...That is, of course, when I wasn't beating up on my little brother.

I hope you use some of the many fun ideas on this site with your children on your next trip. Be sure to take a look at my blog too! Contact me here.  Happy travels!
