We have several road trips planned for this summer (mostly to see Dan play) and I can already hear the screams echoing through the minivan. Yeah, that would be me.
No, I’m just kidding. My kids are really good travelers, as long as we bring a 200-pack of Trader Joe’s lollipops and keep passing ’em back. The sad truth is, being trapped in a metal box hurtling through space, whether it’s car, plane, or train, is challenging for little people- and their parents.
The trick is keeping a steady supply of new diversions for them to throw under the seat. To this end, Disney Family.com is offering an “On the Road With Family.com” kit to one Rock and Roll Mama Reader! The kit is one more tool in the arsenal to keep children comfortably entertained during trips this summer, and will attempt to put an end to the dreaded “Are we there yet?” question.
The travel kit includes a plush kid size travel pillow, a copy of Dr. Seuss’s There’s a Map in My Lap, a travel game kit, notepad and pen, and a tote bag (a $30 value).
To enter, please leave a comment telling me about any planned road trips this summer! We’re hitting the beach a few times, Atlantic City and Chincoteaque Island- my favorite ice cream spot. If you have any tips to keep three year olds from repeating, “Ouch! Charlie Bit Me!” for 200 miles, that would be great, too. And if you’d like an additional entry, feel free to subscribe to my RSS feed, and leave an additional comment letting me know. Winner will be randomly drawn in a week, on Friday, July 3rd, and notified via email.
