While I am thrilled to take our road trip to Ohio, there is one thing I am more than a little nervous about: An 8 hour car ride with a preteen, a baby, and a toddler. Not to mention the fact that my husband will be driving. If you happen to know my hubby, you'll understand what I mean.Oh. My. Goodness. I'm not sure I will be able to survive the road with my sanity intact! All kidding aside, traveling with kids can be tough. My oldest will undoubtedly pester me with a litany of "Are we there yet?" and my baby and my toddler might decide they hate being in the car that long and get cranky. We will be driving through the mountains, and there aren't many places to stop for food. And if you have kids, you know as well as I do that they WILL get hungry, right after you pass the last rest stop for 150 miles. Now THAT part of the trip I have covered, thanks to Earth's Best!
A kid-proofed Thanksgiving celebration will make everyone’s day more enjoyable. Here are ways to ensure the little ones have what they need when their tummies are rumbling and boredom sets in:
- Have the kids create Thanksgiving themed place cards with crayons and tree leaves…leave the older children in charge of writing the names.
- Set aside story time and read a short book on the meaning of Thanksgiving that gives everyone an opportunity to ask questions, talk about what they learned in school and, for the youngest ones, look at colorful pictures and hear a soothing voice.
- Everyone reaches for the chip bowl at holiday parties…even those with the littlest of hands. Make them a snack bowl of their very own filled with Earth's Best Organic™ Pop Snax. The air popped rice and potato snacks are fortified specially for toddlers with iron, zinc and six B vitamins. The Sweet Potato Cinnamon variety is perfect for the season.
- Get the kids together for a picture with some Thanksgiving themed props like pumpkins, gourds, corn and hand turkeys (created by them) that can be framed and displayed next year.
