Parent’s Survival Guide To Holiday Road Trips | Luther Burnsville Hyundai

In case the shining trees in every window, lights on every house and dreadful traffic surrounding every shopping center didn’t tip you off, Christmas is this week.  With this time of year often comes holiday travel. And while the holidays bring with them much joy, the long car ride to grandma’s might not be quite as cheerful. Anxiety over holiday travel is a thing of the past with our Parent’s Survival Guide to Holiday Road Trips.

Travel Documentary

Kids love having a task they are totally responsible for. When kids feel they are in charge of something, they will put all of their focus into it. Do a sweep of the house and gather up your old smartphones and video cameras. Give each child a phone or camera and tell them they are in charge of making a road trip documentary. Give them free reign and tell them they can record anything they want and at the end of the trip you will all watch the footage as a family. This not only makes the children feel important, but keeps you from having to entertain throughout the trip. Be sure to pack extra chargers for the devices and memory cards if necessary.

Navigate Peacefully

Avoid a tussle between you and your loved ones by investing in a trustworthy GPS. Putting a GPS system in charge of navigation keeps you and your love from arguing over whether or not you should have turned at that gas station 5 blocks back. If your vehicle comes equipped with a navigation system the hard work is done for you. Simply input your destination and enjoy a argument free drive. Of course you can always use your smartphone as your GPS as well. If you choose this route, we suggest purchasing a car mounted holder like these here and an auxiliary cord like these here if your vehicle does not come equipped with Bluetooth connectivity.
