Traveling With Kids: Memorial Day Weekend Travel Tips

I just came back from Thailand. What an amazing experience that was. I know that it’s been a long time since I posted anything on this blog. As promised, I’ll be more active posting amazing content. For today’s topic, it’s going to be on Memorial Day weekend. It’s a time where families travel to places to visit distance relatives or perhaps to have some fun. My children usually get tired on these long excursion and I’ll share with you how I always keep them entertained.


If your car doesn’t have a DVD player built in, you’ll need to get a portable one. You need to have some of their favorite kids movies. Movies always help you to make travel seem faster and that’s the main reason why airplanes always have them.

However, if your children that are far apart in age, there’ll always be movies that anyone can enjoy. If you aren’t sure where to start, here’s a plan for you. You can let your children watch this YouTube channel called tonyopyop. It’s the best YouTube channel that shows the best kids movies.

If you have kids that are far apart in age there are still movies that all age groups can enjoy.

Coloring Books

If you kids love coloring, it is always a good idea to have a stack of coloring books and crayons to help them get distracted for some time.

Older children might get bored easily and you don’t want that to happen,do you? What you need to do is to let them do the things they enjoy the most.

Frequent Stops

If the Memorial Day weekend trip is very long, you need to take stops more frequently. Being in a car for too long will cause anyone including yourself to get tired.

It is always a great idea to plan the trip route to include activities such as short sightseeing stops. Stopping at rest stops allows you a chance to use the washroom and stretch your legs.
