Many people plan their vacations down to the minute of each day, but so often overlook the opportunities to enjoy the travel time. The ‘road’ part of the trip can be just as memorable as the destination! With just a little forethought, your captive audience can have hours of fun.
Music… A road trip necessity! Put the iPod’s away and listen to some of your family’s favorite songs that put smiles on their faces and lift their spirits. Assign solo’s and chorus lines for a sing-along, play name that tune or fill in the missing lyrics, and even create your own family theme song. You can talk about favorite genres or instruments in the music, talk about the music of ‘your day,’ let your kids tell you why their favorite singer is so cool, and on and on.
Here is a list of some famous ‘road’ songs that you might like to add into your own mix.
