Since many families don’t plan on attending any big family gatherings for Christmas this year, taking a road trip to a National Park in an RV, is quickly becoming a popular Christmas memory making alternative. (Yep, an RV! If you’re still working on those plans, considering using RV Share. This just may be something you may want to consider!) Even if you don’t plan to travel any where, stay local and consider driving to experience the Christmas lights in the city near you. Irrespective of what your plans are, if you have young kids in tow, “Are we there yet?” is a phrase that never seems to grow old. Bond over some good ol’ fashion Christmas road trip activities, even if you just plan to take a 20 minute drive out to those lights!Christmas Road Trip Activities

I would recommend printing and laminating all sheets, but the coloring sheet, to ensure the book lasts to your destination and back.

If you do laminate the sheets, don’t forget to carry odorless dry erase markers on your trip.
