Children on the Road
Road trips with the family are especially fun. My first venture on Route 66 was by happenstance. We had a car full of children and saw a sign, “Historic Route 66 – Next Exit.” So, we took it. With children on the road you need to keep them entertained. Route 66 accomplished that.
We also took a short detour to the Grand Canyon. None of us had seen it before, myself included.
Keeping Them Occupied
Keeping the children occupied is always a challenge. My wife makes up puzzles (oh, and she published her first puzzle book. Click here.) I would make quizzes and scavenger hunt pages. All of these go in to a folder — one for each child. This keeps them occupied between stops.
Thank You Nicole
Thank you Nicole for bringing to our attention a very nice Route 66 overview. Nicole’s mom e-mailed me a link to this very cool page.
On that page is this link to a nice end-to-end overview:
Their family is planning a road trip and found our website and sent us a nice thank you email and found our site of value for planning their trip. Nicole’s mom is thinking of creating a blog for their trip. When she does, we will definitely feature it here.
