How to Keep the Kids Occupied in the Car

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: time to drive over the river and through the woods to see your friends and family and celebrate the holidays! But how to keep the munchkins happy--and how to keep their parents sane on the long drive? Read on to find out….

Listen to audiobooks Consider a classic series, like Harry Potter, The Hobbit, or maybe The Chronicles of Narnia. Kids love imaginative adventures, and you’ll love the peace and quiet that comes with occupied little minds--as well as the joy of passing on your favorites to your kiddos.

Consider a new educational game or two for the iPad. None of us like to rely on the electronic babysitter, but there’s a time and a place--and trust us, long road trips are as a good a time as any. There are thousands of educational games to choose from. Here is a good list to get you started. 

Car games One great way to engage the whole family is to play car games! Check out some of our favorites.

Pack well. Plan ahead for bored minds and hungry bellies. Make sure your car is clean and vacuumed. Make sure you have fresh water and snacks. And consider a goodie bag loaded with new items to amuse and delight. 

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwaanza, Chanukah, or Yule, Carlsbad Auto Service would like to wish you a warm, happy, and safe holiday season. Thank you for your business. May your days be merry and bright...and may your cars make it to 300,000 miles along with our help! From all of us at Carlsbad Auto Service: Happy Holidays...and Happy New Year!
