Family road trips are the ultimate way to teach your kids about travel.

They are a chance to create memories to last a lifetime, to explore the historic landmarks of our beautiful country, and for many, the opportunity to experience the freedom of wide open spaces that you can't find anywhere else.

For parents, these on the road adventures might bring back a sense of nostalgia for childhood — everyone camped out in the back seat, snacks in hand and miles of exploration ahead.

Others picture more of a Griswold family vacation disaster and dread the inevitable question from the backseat, Are we there yet?

While it's true family road trips often get a bad reputation, they don't have to.

Just like any vacation — with or without family — proper preparation is the key to alleviating stressors and repetitive questions that come along with the journey.

Planning games and activities prior to hitting the road are a great way to solve this so you can focus on enjoying quality time together and getting excited for the destination that lies ahead.

Apps and gadgets are often a go-to resource when it comes to keeping kids entertained, but they're not always the healthiest, most stimulating or educational choice.

Modern parents often struggle with their children's dependence on screens, so to help provide some alternatives ideas for road trip activities — and give your kid's eyes a rest from the blue light.

CarRentals put together this list of free road trip printables.

Use them for your next family trip or even the morning commute to school!
