Creative Activities for Travel (and Vacation) Fun for Kids

Looking for simple yet cool ways to make your vacation and travel fun with kids?

You'll love these free printable journal pages that are just perfect for jotting down memories and boosting creativity.

As a mom of 5 boys, I know joys and struggles of traveling with children. Whenever a big trip (or soccer event for older brothers) was coming up I'd search high and low for creative and quiet activities for keeping my boys busy without screens.

Coloring ideas, like books and printable pages, would often work well. With a bit of prep, I'd have plenty of ways to keep their hands busy and focus on something productive.

My two younger boys still like to break out their coloring tools when we're on the road. Lately, our travel has been to Professor's college soccer games. His college is about 50 minutes away so the boys have plenty of time to color and such to home and away games. We chat about where we're going, how long it will take, and any interesting sites along the way.

All that on-the-go learning fun inspired these free travel and vacation journal pages for kids. I have so many ideas for using these activities for trips AND in our homeschool!
