"Traveling Music" for Summer

Karmel Larson

Summer is really here! So excited for the road trips with the little ones this Summer? Or on the patient plane ride to your fun summer destination?
Our travelling children deserve appropriate soundtrack that can soothe, excite, distract, inspire, make them laugh and enjoy family time in the car. Music effects our children in ways that we might not be able to reach them in a travel setting. Join our drop-off "On the Road" Summermusik Camp for Preschoolers 3-5 yrs old to learn and take home wonderful ideas and new songs. Please enjoy learning the best music playlists for the road from Kindermusik Blog.
"4 Ways to Use Music to Stop the “Are We There Yet?” traveling dilemma"
Whatever happened to spur-of-the-moment weekend getaways where you grabbed your overnight bag, a couple of outfits, and a great beach read before hitting the highway? Well, kids happened that’s what. Now, spur-of-the-moment getaways are more like “plan-months-ahead-to-locate-clean-diaper-changing-rest-stops-and-book-a-UHaul-to-lug-around-all-that-baby-stuff getaways.” Anyone else feel exhausted just thinking about it? And, let’s not even talk about planning a trip to Disney World with kids. Parents write entire dissertations about that family vacation—and then Pin it on Pinterest for us all to identify where we fail as parents.

Traveling with kids can be an adventure—and I don’t just mean an adventure in patience. Of course, we all know that every good adventure deserves an even better soundtrack! It appears as if the majority of parents agree! In fact, a recent study by Alamo Rent A Car found that more parents (80 percent) use music to keep children happy than iPads (19 percent).

In our years of travel, we learned how to maximize the music in our car in order to minimize the “Are We There Yet?” traveling dilemma. Let’s be honest. Children communicate that question long before they can even speak: by crying, kicking seats, and general get-me-out-of-my-car-seat grumpiness.
