Travel & Camping Ideas for Kids

Though our family has yet to go camping (sad but true), we do take an annual road trip to my parents’ home in Califorina—a solid 11-hour drive. I’m always on the lookout for ideas and projects to keep my kids busy in the car and at grandma’s house so I can maintain a bit of sanity.

Our trip is in just a few weeks so I’m already planning how the kids will pass the time. I scoured the web and Pinterest and found 12 travel and camping ideas for kids perfect for our summer vacationing.
