Hey Parents & Grandparents, These RV Accessories Teach Kids As You Travel

Hey Parents & Grandparents, These RV Accessories Teach Kids As You Travel

RVing as a family is a beautiful way to teach kids about the USA. In the RV, the ordinary textbook becomes a real-life experience as you cruise down Route 66 or explore Carlsbad Caverns.

Today we’re sharing a few RV accessories that make these learning moments extra special (and impactful).

Let’s dive in!

USA Sticker Map

For parents or grandparents RVing with kids, a USA sticker map is essential.

Kids can visualize on a map where they are and how far they’ve traveled. 

Additionally, adding new stickers to the map becomes a fun ritual as you enter each new state.

Here’s the sticker map that we use!

National Parks: A Kid’s Guide to America’s Parks

This book is excellent before, during, and after RV trips. You can gift this to your kids or grandkids before vacation. Let them research, in a kid-friendly way, the places you plan to visit.

In your RV travels, kids can use this book to discover activities in each National Park you visit.

And, after your vacation is over, the Kid’s Guide can inspire future family adventures.

Trekking Pole for Kids

Hiking and RVing go hand in hand. Sometimes it can be hard to inspire kids to hit the trails.

The trekking poles for kids can give you travel buddy more ownership when it comes to hiking. They’ll be excited to use their poles, and you can probably get an extra mile on the trail.

It also promotes safe hiking practice!

Take your camping experience to the next level with these RV accessories.

Kids Road Atlas

Please, as a service to humanity, teach kids to read maps! In this age of iPhone GPS, knowing how to read a map is becoming a lost art.

This Kids Road Atlas can plant the seed of wisdom.

Get your kids excited about travel and sneak in a little map reading knowledge at the same time!

Task Reminder Bands

These colorful task reminder bands were created to help adults remember each task on travel days.

Consequently, the reminder bands are fun for kids, too.

You can assign them easy tasks and give them the bands. Once they complete them, the bands can be worn as bracelets (kind of like badges). It helps to get the whole family involved on travel day!

Free Camping is Fun For Kids, Too!

To be honest with you, we hate paying for camping. There are so many free campsites in America (with complete privacy). You should give it a try! As a matter of fact, these free campsites are yours.

Every time you pay federal taxes, you’re contributing to these lands.

Here’s our list of the 20 Best Free Campsites in the USA.

    These are really great ideas! I need to check out the ones I wasn’t familiar with yet. I’ve been loving your posts during this crazy time, it’s been really informative and entertaining. I just wrote a post about how full time RVing prepared us for quarantine 🙂
