Summer is over and the kids are happily enriching their minds and chasing each other at recess. This segment of the academic year, however, brings with it several long weekends and holiday breaks. It is during these times that many families choose to travel and anyone who has ever been on a road trip with a “yungin” knows how difficult traveling with children can be.
The never ending chorus ringing from the backseat in 10 mile intervals (if you’re lucky) of “Are we there yet?” drones for the entirety of your passage. Unfortunately, young kids don’t always understand the concept of time, nor least of all, travel. DIY Home Sweet Home has this amazing idea to help children calculate their distance and prevent those awful four words.
When her family embarked on a 16-hour road trip, she printed and colored a car that looked like theirs, attached it to a ribbon tied between the hooks and drew 16 tick marks to represent each hour of the trip. As their car progressed, so did they girls’ and as they had a clear visual never had to ask if they were there yet.
