Looking for great road trip tips

Spring Break is just around the corner, and that means vacation and road trip time for a lot of people. Yippee!  you can go every where with your car and if you dont have car Iran car rental and van rental in Iran will help you .Our family has taken many road trips over the last decade and a half, and I wanted to share the system and layout that we’ve created that works for us. if you rent a van in tehran company will say you everything about road trips
First, I suggest that each person (and child) pack a small bag or tote of their favorite toys/activities. For adults this might be magazines, books, electronics. Kids might pack some books, coloring books or journals, electronic toy(s), printable activities/games, dolls, or legos. These small bags are what we pack next to our seats
A food bin is a big must for any road trip. I like to use a small box to store all our snacks. I make each of our girls their own plastic container of special snacks, this was learned after one too many, “but Mom, she already had two granola bars…”. If each child starts with the same number of “fun” snacks, they can’t argue if they eat all theirs. We always pack some general pretzels and such, but the special snacks are limited
Here’s a look at how we pack our car for a road trip (with a family of 4) and what we bring

Passenger Seat

this is where the main passenger (usually me) keeps their stuff. I like to pack magazines, my ipad, and my purse in a narrow tote

Main Console

we keep electronic chargers, wet wipes, kleenex, napkins, and a first aid kit here

Garbage

we have a special fabric car trash can that loops around my seat belt latch, but you can also use a plain plastic bag in the same way

DVD Players

we’ve always had dual dvd car screens that we bought at Target, but now that our girls received tablets for Christmas, we’ll probably look into buying a tablet car mount like these (affiliates) tablet backseat headrest mounts . Our girls love watching some of their favorite movies while on a road trip. Of course you may decide to skip this. Updated: lately we’ve been using other forms of technology for kids to watch movies

Kid Bags

this is where the kids store their personally selected items for the road trip. It could include a book or journal, or a special activity/toy. Our girls use their thirty-one Keep-It Caddy organizers for their things. If you’re wanting to keep things off the ground, I’m loving these new thirty-one Hang Up Activity Organizers or you might consider something like this (affiliate) Backseat Organizer

Food

this is where we keep all the road trip snack goodies. Easy reach for each person. Make sure you remember wet wipes & napkins. Another tip is to bring lidded/sippy cups for the kids. They work great for sharing a bottle of juice or water, and no spills! For adults, consider a thermal mug if you’re a coffee drinker. Your hot drinks will stay much warmer than those disposable cups from the store


Kids Fun


this is normally another bag and carries more kids activities and games. We normally have a blanket for each kid in this space too. If the roadtrip isn’t too long, this could be the only space you store kids activities

Luggage

bags and stuff you don’t need to access while driving goes here. We often have one hotel stop on our main road trip drive, so we pack one overnight bag with all of our stuff for that hotel night so we don’t have to bring in each person’s luggage. Another tip is to keep some extra snacks/treats or special drinks and such back here so you can dole them out when you stop.
I’m looking forward to creating a road trip packing list so be sure to follow along and watch for it! Anyone heading out on a road trip or somewhere fun for Spring Break
