5 Tips And Tricks For A Relaxing Campervan Journey With Kids

You’re all packed up and ready to go – here’s how to keep those ‘Are we there yet?’ moments at bay:

1. Audio Books (Or Real Books)

Audio books are perfect for entertaining everyone in the car, because there are plenty available that suit adults and young kids. Some libraries even offer audio books for hire, making this a cheap and cheerful way to make those long stretches of road more enjoyable.

And of course, books are an old classic road trip friend. You never know, the kids may just fall in love with reading as an alternative to the tablet they likely never put down at home.

2. Car Karaoke

Before the roadtrip, ask everyone to choose a favourite tune or two and print out the lyrics for each one. Set them all up in a playlist and voilà – backseat karaoke fun for the whole family. 

3. Arts & Crafts

For older kids, a whiteboard and some dry-erase pens can make games of hangman or noughts and crosses a breeze. Alternatively, a few cheap packets of brightly coloured pipe-cleaners are a no-mess way to keep the little ones busy.

4. Roadtrip Bingo

Before you set off, print a list of items for the kids to find at any point on your trip. Research your destination beforehand so you have a comprehensive list that will have your children always finding new things! It will keep the kids eagle-eyed and excited right up until the moment you reach home again.

5. Surprise Presents

We’ll be the first to admit that bribery goes a long way. Pick a couple of small gifts for each of your children (equal size and value, of course!), wrap them up and conceal them somewhere. At random intervals throughout the trip, surprise them with their cool new toy!

Kids love the top beds in campers – for your next family roadtrip check out the Britz Explorer or Frontier, or click here to find the perfect vehicle for your family holiday!
