One of our family’s favorite things to do is to road trip. Actually, we love it so much – we’ve recently started a blog familyroadtripping.com where we chronicle our adventures and share some tips and tricks to traveling the roads with a family in tow.
We all can picture the cliche image of mom turning around, screaming at the top of her lungs while driving. “QUIET DOWN!” “NO, WE AREN’T THERE YET!” “WE JUST STOPPED, WHY DIDN’T YOU PEE THEN!”
The best way to survive, is to keep the kids occupied. When you have 4 kids, 2 of which are toddlers – keeping them entertained is the only way one can sanely travel for many hours at a time. I’ve rounded up 5 products that will help do just that. Another perk: these don’t just work on road trips. ANYTIME you are venturing out in the car, these will help keep the peace.
Keeping Mom Sane in the Car
Here are 5 tech products to keep mom sane in the car.
Your car doesnt have a built-in entertainment system? No worries just pick up the Akron Universal Tablet Headrest Mount and your kids can watch movies from their gadgets in the car!
If everyone is watching the same movie in the car, then you must have a splitter adapter to keep the peace. Just make sure everyone has their own headphones this splitter works for two pairs.
States across the country have banned using hand-held devices while driving. But no fear you can make calls and take charge of the radio station with the hands-free car kit. So what if your car doesnt have Bluetooth capabilities this device does it for the fraction of the cost!
OK so now your car is full of wires!!!! So lets go wireless for a second. Help your teens cut the chord with these foldable Bluetooth headphones. They easily pair with any device, giving your kids some freedom to move around the car without getting their wires crossed.
God forbid someones tablet dies, or the phone shuts off and they cant text THE HORROR! Dont worry mom, arm your car with a duel-port battery charger to make sure your trip is stress free and fully powered! It charges two devices at once!
