How To Take Family Road Trips on The Cheap

Planning Family Road Trips On the Cheap - see some ways to cut costs

Summer is just around the corner. Soon enough, the kids will be out of school and you might be thinking of taking a few family road trips. Planning a road trip does not happen overnight, however,  you’ll want to start budgeting and planning now to minimize headaches around the departure date.

There are plenty of online resources to help you save on traveling expenses once you get to your destination, but what about saving along the way? Check out the following tips for saving money during the journey:

Family Road Trips on The Cheap

Gas Expenses

Whether you are going away for a weekend trip to a national forest near your home or driving cross-country, gas is likely one of the most expensive things you will have to pay for while you are on the road. Depending on where you live, gas is anywhere between $2.00 to $2.90 per gallon on average right now – not cheap by anyone’s standards, especially if you’re taking a family-sized car that gets fewer miles to the gallon. Luckily, there are some ways around exorbitant gas prices, such as using Gas Buddy, a smartphone app designed to help you find the cheapest gas stations in your area. You may also want to plan a road trip that is not too far from home, simply for the purposes of saving on transportation expenses.

Grub-and-Go

Another major expense will be food and drinks. Let’s face it you get hungry, your family gets hungry and the last thing you want to deal with when you’re stuck in an enclosed space for several hours on end is irritable family members. If you have room, pack a small cooler (purchase a small reusable one – you will get many years of good use) to store your drinks and cold items – such as yogurt, coffee creamer, water, etc. – and have another box or two with snacks and/or sandwiches.

To save on food items before you hit the road, check your local grocery store flyers ads, look for coupon deals & match ups or you can check out the Favado app. This way, you won’t have to rely on the few and far in between gas stations that pop up along the highways every so often (which charge wildly inflated prices on their food and drink items because they don’t have much competition in the middle of nowhere).

Entertainment for the Kids

Public libraries offer free DVDs, audio books to check out, in addition to their book selections. If you have a DVD player in your car, be sure to check out your local library’s movie catalog before going on your road trip adventure. iPads loaded with gaming apps can also keep your kids occupied for quite some time – just download the free versions, since the only difference between most free and paid game apps is the number of ads displayed (Just make sure you do not have your internet connected to your hotspot and double checking parenting controls).

Remember your days of road trips with your parents. We had no form of entertainment other than ourselves. Encourage your kids to write, draw or play classic road trip games. I also like to pack a few new small toys purchased from your local Dollar Store. New always means, extra time to explore and learn.

Dining Out

After several hours of driving and snacking on whatever you could fit in the car, you will eventually have to stop for a real meal. To save money on restaurants in the local area, check Groupon or Living Social  for food and dining deals before resigning yourself to the fast food selections just off of the highway. You may also want to schedule your meal times to minimize eating out, such as stopping for a late breakfast or having late/early dinner.  Leaving snacking in between (rather than stopping for three big meals). If you have a smartphone, the Yelp app can be useful for finding quality restaurants around you that have moderate menu prices.

Every dollar saved on the road is another dollar you will have available to spend once you get to your destination, so every little bit helps!

Here is a project where kids can wear their creative hats and paint their own Painted Rock Outdoor Tic Tac Toe Set. This activity is perfect birthday party game. And let’s not forget that it really isn’t just for parties, you can make it for your next together or just some backyard fun.

Tic Tac Toe is a great game that not only teaches sportsmanship, but also strategy to young minds. Plus, one of my favorite parts is that it is very little cost involved. You may even have some of the supplies need to make in your home right now.

This is a project I’ve had in mind since late December. I am so glad the weather is warming up and that I could get it going.  My kids actually had a great time going on nature rock hunts to find their perfect round rocks. It kept them busy and we were enjoying our time together.

See complete instructions below. Enjoy my friends and Happy Summertime to you.

Gathering your supplies is easy. Then you can get ready to enjoy this Painted Rock Tic Tac Toe Game with your kids

 

Supplies Needed:

10 Smooth rocks (about the size of a golf ball)

Martha Stewart craft paint:  Below are the colors I used and purchased through Joann.com

diving board

fruit punch

beetle black

2- 1″ foam paint brushes

1 Small flat paint brush

Outdoor chalk

painting your rocks for tic tac toe game

your kids will love the brightly painted tic tac toe game

The last step in creating your very own Brightly colored Rock Tic Tac Toe Game

Directions

1. Wash and dry your rocks if they are dirty

2. Using a foam brush, paint five of your rocks pink and let dry

3. Using another foam brush, paint the other five rocks teal and let dry

4. Now paint them each with a second coat of paint and let that dry

5. Use your small flat brush and paint all your teal rocks with an “X”?and all of your pink rocks with an “O” and let dry

6. Once your rocks are dry, use your chalk to draw a tic tac toe board, then instead of drawing X’s and O’s, use your rocks!

Finish Rock Tic Tac Toe Game Set
