Moving Long Distance with Kids
We all love Fayetteville, NC, but in a military town we realize that moving is common and moving cross-country happens. A long distance move can be stressful, and long car rides with kids isn’t easy. Here are some tips for traveling long distance with children and keeping everyone happy along the way.
Snacks for the Road
Not only the kids get hungry. While A+ Moving and Storage takes care of your move – you’ll have plenty of car space to fit a cooler packed full of delicious treats. If your time is limited just pack some easy trail mix – something delicious that keeps you full.
Keep things fun! Depending on ages – books, audiobooks, movies, tablets etc. can all help make a long car ride seem shorter! Don’t forget the charger! Toys and coloring books can help to keep toddlers occupied as well. Be sure to encourage your kids to bring their favorite stuffed animal along for the ride. Even blankets and pillows in the back seat can make the road trip seem more fun!
Drive through the Night
For you night owl parents – wait until it’s the kids bedtime and drive through the night. Beat traffic and get a large portion of the trip completed with sleepy/stress-free youngsters! Take an afternoon nap prior to leaving and be sure you are well rested and prepared with plenty of water and your own snacks to keep you alert and driving safely.
Moving with kids doesn’t have to be a nightmare if you take the right steps to prepare! A+ Moving and Storage will be sure to take care of your move and you just worry about you and your family!
