If your kids suddenly wake up and noticed that they are in a long hour campervan ride, silence them with their favorite games. You can bring along with you your PSPs, tablets or any handheld devices that are installed with games. The game I-Spy is popular among kids. If your kids are all occupied playing games, expect to have a one sweet campervan ride in New Zealand.

Fill their kiddy bags with goodies

Kids love sporting up their own bags. Be sure that each of your kid has their own bagpack filled with goodies. The goodies can be their favorite snacks and tiny toys. They love to open their bag and pull out something interesting. This is another way of keeping them occupied.

Have enough change of clothes

A long campervan ride might be exhausting. Though your destination is New Zealand, your kids can also break a sweat since they move a lot and are very playful. To prevent them from crying due to uncomfy clothes, get ready with enough change of clothes. This would also prevent your kids from catching cold and flu during your campervan New Zealand travel.

Bring their favorite food

Another way to have a sweet campervan ride with your kids is to have enough supply of food. Kids always eat a little, but they always eat from time to time. If you don’t want your kids to crack an endless cry, stuff their mouth with their favorite food. They would be busy nibbling the food on their hand, thus, forgetting to whine.

Following these tips will lift a heavy burden on your shoulder. Kids also have the right to travel so don’t leave them out. Let them taste the fun of traveling.
