5 Ingredients = 5 Different Spritzer Recipes & Road Trip Activities!

We all know road trips can get long and boring (are we theeere yet? icon wink The Perfect Road Trip Cooler ). Two things to combat the blahs for kids:

1. Give them something to look forward to.

2. Give them something fun.

Fill your cooler or cooler bag with these five ingredients (plus ice!), give your kids the recipe “menu,” and give them the time you plan to stop and make their first treat so they can think about what exciting drink they plan to try (coincide this time with your first bathroom break).

Once you make the drink treats and are back in the car, give them their activities that go with their drinks! (If more than one child, do one activity at a time, so all can participate–perhaps allowing one half hour per activity). You may have to stop for an extra bathroom break, but the fun is totally worth it! icon smile The Perfect Road Trip Cooler

*Don’t forget to pack plastic or paper cups with lids! We love getting each person their own reusable plastic cup. Either designate a color for each person, or Sharpie the names so they don’t get mixed up!

Let the Road-Trip Fun begin!
