Let the Good Times Roll with These Family Road Trip Tips
There’s nothing like hopping in the car for some good old-fashioned family bonding. With its vast coastlines and diverse terrain, America is one of the best places for a road trip. As you and your family wind your way from one destination to the next, you might find that your family’s appetite for a long road trip has its limits. Despite your best efforts, your kids just aren’t thrilled with the idea of being stuck in the car for days on end. But you can keep spirits high by anticipating your family’s needs and throwing in a few surprise treats. Use these tips and creative ways to use Smelly Proof bags to make the most of your time on the road.
A Welcome Distraction
Boredom will quickly bring your family road trip to a halt. Kids tend to have short attention spans and all that gazing out the window can get tiresome. Bring along a few handheld games and puzzles for your kids to enjoy. If you’re worried about screens ruining your family’s vacation, you can limit the amount of time your child spends on their smartphone or gaming device. It forces them to be conscious of when and how long they’re logged on. You can also pick some group activities that everyone can enjoy such as a movie, podcast, or an audiobook.
If you’re camping or spending a lot of time outdoors, make sure you wrap those fancy electronics in our larger sized Smelly Proof plastic bags to keep out moisture and dirt.
Don’t Forget the Medical Supplies
You never know when you might encounter a medical emergency. From nose bleeds to motion sickness, the slightest discomfort can quickly turn into a major headache for you and everyone else in the car. Fill up on items like Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, and other must-have first-aid items. Pack them in Smelly Proof’s study plastic bags and store them in a dry, safe place.
Bring Along Some Sweet Treats
Nothing turns a frown into a smile like a delicious bag of treats. Pack a few bags of your kids’ favorite snacks and keep them hidden until the group needs a pick-me-up. If you’re stuck in traffic or struggling to find a good place to eat, you need to have some refreshments on hand to keep the crankiness at bay. Of course, you don’t want a bunch of smelly food stinking up your car all day. Stick your treats in a few Smelly Proof bags to keep the air out and the smells locked in.
Keep Things Healthy
As tempting as those truck stop diners can be, a long road trip is not the best time to indulge. All that greasy, fried food can cause a lot of unexpected pain down the road, including diarrhea, constipation and upset stomach. Encourage everyone to stick to lean meat, vegetables, and fruits. Everyone will be in a better mood if their stomachs are full of nourishing ingredients.
Durable and odor-free, Smelly Proof plastic bags will help you stay organized as your family takes the trip of a lifetime. Stock up today!
