4 Road Trip Necessities {PLUS a Winner-Takes-All Giveaway}

Our family has become seasoned road warriors over the past couple of years. My husband and I met and lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota for 8 years. With his family living in Michigan and mine in West Virginia, we often made the 17 hour total trip without stopping (except for of course to fill up and take quick potty breaks). Fast forward to the kids; there was a 3 1/2 year period where my husband had to travel back and forth from Michigan to West Virginia (sometimes with a kid or two in tow) twice a month. Aside from putting a lot of miles on our vehicles, we also learned that when traveling with kids, there are 4 Road Trip Necessities we never left home without! The kids and I just got back from a 4-day trip to Michigan and I'm excited to share the products we used to cover our road trip must-haves!

Make Learning Fun With New Games From Winning Moves Games



For some parents, getting kids to participate in educational activities, much less enjoy them and want to participate, is no small task. In our home, Eva (age 9) is always ready to learn, but the other three can take some poking and prodding. Our family made the big leap into homeschooling this year (more about that in a post coming up later), and I wanted to find some educational games that I could incorporate into our weekly activities. I check out one of my favorite places for board games, Winning Moves Games, and found two in particular that I just had to have! (Games pictured above provided at no cost to facilitate this review) Our entire family is getting in on the board-game-learning; and having fun while we do it! I know you're kids will love these games just as much as mine do!
