Road Trip Kit and Printable copy

After a few summers of road trips with the kids, I’ve come up with a tried and true road trip kit that keeps the kiddos busy (and keeps the parents sane). I always pack a game, a creative activity, a new toy and a few snacks. Pack everything in Glad snack sized bags. Extra bonus points if you find the character bags for added fun! I crafted up a cute road trip kit tag that you can print and attach to the kit. These kits also make great homemade gifts for neighbors or friends who might be going on a road trip! Keep reading to see what I put in our kit.

Step 1: Head to your local Kroger or Kroger Family Store (I shop at Fry’s) and grab the Glad sandwich and snack bags with your kids’ favorite characters on them. You can also pick up some road trip snacks while you are there! This is also the perfect time to stock up on Glad bags before school starts up again. My kids love the character-printed bags from their favorite movies!

Step 2: Fill a Glad snack bag with a road trip game. Card games, such as Go Fish, are perfect for road trips!

Step 3: Fill a Glad snack bag with a road trip activity. I like to pack something creative for the kids to do, such as stringing beads on a pipe cleaner to make a bracelet. Younger children might enjoy a sticky note pad and crayons.

Step 4: Fill a Glad snack bag with small, inexpensive toys. Kids will have hours of fun with plastic bugs or other little toys that they’ve never seen before.

Step 5: Fill a Glad snack bag with a snack. My road trip snack of choice is a tablespoon of peanut butter (or other nut butter) spread onto a graham cracker. Drizzle with honey and place 8, thinly sliced bananas on top. Add another graham cracker on top and place inside of a Glad snack bag, a perfect fit. This snack is filling, so the kiddos won’t complain that they are hungry a second later.

Step 6: Feel free to pack additional snacks. Baby carrots, sliced cucumbers, grapes (make sure to slice them up for younger children) and small crackers all make great road trip snacks!
