It’s summer and for many families (ours included), it’s a time for road trips! This summer we’re heading out on a road trip with Blu, Jewel and Rio 2 (releasing officially on Blu-Ray/DVD July 15th)! And to celebrate, don’t forget to enter the Rio 2 Giveaway below!
We’re bringing Blu and Jewel along for some extra fun on this trip because as we all know, it helps to have some entertainment along when you have kids in the backseat. Right?
Travel Tips for Road Trips with Kids – here are my top picks:
- Bring along a favorite “friend” for extra comfort – stuffed animal, etc
- Bring along a bag of surprises (pulling them out one at a time, when needed) – this can be anything from a special food treat to an activity which will keep them occupied
- Stop for bathroom breaks frequently, even if the kids insist they don’t need to go (eliminates those emergencies)
Blu sent along a fun travel bag complete with activities and even a travel toothbrush! We needed one of those! My daughter was completely surprised with all the fun in the bag! Rio 2 coloring pages and Crayola coloring pencils, an I Spy for the road trip, tissues, and more!
You can even have the same coloring page:
Best of all, she could be put in charge of her travel bag for the entire trip!
In this day of modern technology, no road trip would be complete without entertainment. Whether it’s a laptop, iPad or even your phone, movies downloaded make for a much quieter and easy ride (oh, my parents would have loved this when I was a kid)!
Someone was having fun watching Rio 2 !
It’s a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids in RIO 2, after they’re hurtled from that magical city to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all – his father-in-law.
All our favorite RIO characters are back, and they’re joined by Oscar® nominee Andy Garcia, Grammy® winner Bruno Mars, Tony® winner Kristin Chenoweth and Oscar/Emmy®/Tony winner Rita Moreno. RIO 2 also features new Brazilian artists and original music by Janelle Monae and Wondaland.
Rio 2 releases on July 15th and my daughter was smiling through it all! She loved the first movie and we recently watched it again in anticipation of this release! The birds, the music……..
