Use a junior navigator on road trips - Traveling with kids tip

The front passenger is always the navigator when I'm traveling with my family or a group. However, I discovered that you can turn your children into junior navigators while helping them learn geography at the same time. It helps eliminate them from asking, "Are we there yet?"

Just ask them to look for a specific landmark or road sign. It will keep them interested in the travel and less likely to be bored along the way, because they're actively doing something. In short, it keeps their interest in traveling while having fun -- and learning about the country!
