My family is on-the-go all summer; vacation, visiting family, and a move! Six children plus long hours in the car and only one adult often means bored, cranky kids. The last thing I want is for the children to be grumpy when we arrive at our destination!
Keep the kids busy and occupied with varied activities during our travel. Pack books on cd, snacks, activity books, and new toys plus load all the electronics with new apps, games and ebooks.
Change it up!
- Watch the clock, switching activities every 20 or 30 minutes during the drive.
- Hide or wrap new items and toys to keep the children in suspense.
- Rotate between electronic and non-electronic activities so that electronics are only used for 1/2 of each hour.
My son loves Disney Pixar Cars movie, so on our most recent vacation I downloaded the new Cars Daredevil Garage app to his iPad (and my iPhone, because I knew his sisters would also want to play!) The Cars Daredevil Garage app is free and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
We also stopped at ToysRUs, where he picked out several new Cars diecast toys, including the ToysRUs exclusive Green Ramone.Back in the car, we practiced the “change it up strategy” by opening a new car every 15 minutes to play with. Then real fun came with scanning the new Cars toys into the app and stunt racing through the courses!
My son loved the Cars and app so much, that he couldn’t wait to show his cousin after arriving at their house. The two boys continued to play long after our road trip ended!
More about the Cars Daredevil Garage App by Disney
This app is super fun, I am glad I loaded it to more than one iPad/iPhone, because all the children in the car wanted turns playing! You should be aware that this app does contain in app purchases to buy a second location (the backyard) and more cars. However children can also earn more cars by completing stunt courses or by scanning in their physical Cars toys.
To race the cars, children just choose a stunt course to race on and a car to race with. Very easy and lots of fun!
