Of all the homemade travel ideas I have done for my kids, this one is numero uno. It may not be my kids number one but it is certainly mine. This road map for kids helps to answer the dreaded question that is asked every 5 minutes on a road trip. “Are we there yet?” That question gets progressively whiny and oh so irritating. I like the kids road map so much that I have made it for all of our last trips. You can read about the Road to Disneyland map here.
This last one that we went on was not very long but I still wanted the kids to have a sense of where they were and how far they still had to go. I went a step further with this travel map and laminated it as well as laminating the double sided car. I used a piece of tape to stick the car to the map. The one thing that was missing from the first maps I made was that I was always a tad anxious for the kids to pass me the map once they had moved the car so that it wouldn’t get wrecked. By laminating the map, they kids were able to keep their maps with them and move them at their leisure. I highly recommend making a kids travel map for anyone who is traveling with kids!
