Creative Ways to Keep the Backseat Quiet

Road tripping is a great way to experience different countries, cultures and even the natural world. It also means you can easily pack for the trip and have all your essentials with you at all times, which is a great benefit for any traveling family. However, any experienced road trippers know that the experience is not always sunshine and daisies.

Getting lost, long nighttime drives and lots of people in a cramped space for hours on end can make for stressful turn of events, especially when you have the kids in tow. Fortunately, with a few creative solutions, you can keep the children happy, content and occupied while you keep your focus on the road ahead.  Here are five tips for keeping the back seat quiet.

Movie Marathon

This one is an old faithful no matter how you’re traveling. Nothing keeps the kids happy better than putting on their favorite films, stocking them up with snacks and letting them go crazy. All you need is a laptop or tablet, a hard drive full of movies and you’re good to go for hopefully the whole trip. However, if the films run out, or they decide they just have to watch one that isn’t on there, things can go downhill quickly. In this situation, you can always pull over to the nearest WiFi hotspot and download some more. However, be warned, public WiFi hotspots are an easy place to pick up nasty malware or even have your details stolen, so if you’re forced to make a pit stop, be sure that you have a Virtual Private Network (VPN) installed to encrypt you data and create a secure connection.
