A few weeks ago some friends of ours were over to visit and they mentioned a recent family vacation where they drove to their destination screen-free with their two kids. To be honest, I’ve gotten so used to turning the DVD player on any time we are in the minivan that the thought of taking a screen-free trip had never crossed my mind before. But, that’s all I ever took as a kid! We didn’t have a DVD player in our vehicle. We didn’t even have any portable game systems. We had our cassette player, radio, and a bag of fun travel items for our trip.
I remember one road trip in particular where my friend and I sat in the back of her mom’s station wagon (remember the seats back there that were turned around backward?!) and played round after round of Uno the entire way. It was a blast!
It got me thinking, with our upcoming trip to the beach in a few weeks, I’d love to go screen-free for the 6-hour drive! My kids could take in the scenery and play fun car games the way I remember playing them. I went in search of the best screen-free travel must-haves for kids and wanted to share them with you today!
