DIY Activities for Kids in Car Trip

When planning for a road trip with children, you’ll need to pack something for them to do while in the vehicle. If you don’t, they’ll get bored and start fighting with each other – or you’ll never hear the end of “Are we there yet?” Fun activities will help the time fly by for them, and before they know it, you’ll be at your destination.

Another item you need to do before you leave is to have your vehicle serviced or checked. If you have service that might be due during your trip or shortly after your return, it’s a good idea to have that done before you leave. If you just had your vehicle serviced, it’s still a good idea to have everything checked at Classic Chevrolet before you leave.

Write a Book

Staple several pages of paper together to form a book. Give each child a favorite topic and have them write a book. For younger kids, have them create a picture book – be sure to pack crayons or water-soluble markers. For older kids, have them write a book on their tablets.

Make a Deck of Cards

Cut out card-sized pieces of heavy construction paper ahead of time so kids won’t have to use scissors while in a moving vehicle. Have the kids make their own decks of cards for Go Fish and Memory games. Create the cards in the vehicle, then play the games when you get to your destination.

Make a Windchime

Get the parts to create a windchime. Have the children string it up on the trip. If you get plain wood, they can decorate the wooden part. Or, have them string beads together for the top part of the chime.

Make Jewelry

Bring each child a kit to make jewelry. Have them make necklaces and bracelets for themselves and their friends.

Visit Classic Chevrolet

Stop by Classic Chevy to have your vehicle serviced or checked. If you are planning on a new vehicle this summer, stop by to test drive your favorite model before you leave for the trip – you’ll be able to take a road trip in a new vehicle.
