Listening is something that kids can actually really enjoy… especially after lunch when everyone’s sleepy and ready for a nap. 🙂
Road trips are fabulous opportunities to introduce your kids to music that you’d like them to hear. We sang Johnny Horton’s version of “1814” all the way to California and back! It was definitely better (for everyone involved) than “The Wheels on the Bus” or “Found a Peanut”.
And, of course, there are always audio books. Our all-time favorite is the Radio Theatre version of the Chronicles of Narnia. It is truly like watching a movie with your imagination. The voices, music, and story telling are all incredible. I highly recommend checking it out!
