How to Survive a Road Trip

Pin It Now!

My sister and her beau set out on a road trip together. They were making the trek from Wisconsin to Mississippi in one straight shot. I wanted to lessen the pain of their 16 hour road trip adventure by packing a few surprise presents for them to open along the way. Here's what I came up with:

 1// Gumballs
They were instructed to challenge each other to a bubble gum blowing contest.

2// US Presidents + US States Flashcards
This was meant to be a fun way to pass the time and see how much they knew about our states and presidents. Bree's guy loves history and I knew he would have fun with this.

3// Candy
A Mamba for him, a Charleston Chew for her. Everyone likes a little road trip junk food.

4// Nerd Glasses
Black for him, Pink for her. They were instructed to take a photo in a public place wearing their glasses. {They failed. I have yet to see a picture.}

5// Marshmallows
They had to play the game Chubby Bunny. You know, the one where you stuff your mouth with marshmallows. Whoever has the most marshmallows and can be clearly understood saying the words "chubby bunny" wins. I played it at my sixteenth birthday party, right before the whip cream fight. Good times.

6// Toothbrush + Toothpaste travel set
Right around hour 8 I knew they would be thankful for this. Especially after their teeth were covered in sugar mittens from the marshmallows.

7// Red Bull
They were instructed to play Rock, Paper, Scissors. The loser had to chug the can of Red Bull. Once again, there was supposed to be picture documentation. So guys, where's the picture?

8// Ear Bud Wrapster
Black for him, Purple for her. This little contraption can serve as a place to wrap your iPhone ear buds to keep them from tangling, or as a stand for your iPhone. I knew this was something they would both like. Also a perfect way to wrap up the road trip survival kit.

If you're planning a summer road trip I highly recommend this game. It's a fun way to pass the time and a great way to make a memory!

All photos were found via Google then compiled into a collage.
