What to Pack for the Kids When Off-Roading
Off-roading is fun for the entire family. You get to go and do things and see things that others just don’t without a four-wheel drive vehicle. From the top of a hill that is all rock to the bottom of a river bed, off-roading always affords adventure.
That being said, when you go off-roading with the kids, you’ll need items to make them more comfortable. Kids can’t sit as long as adults and often become antsy. It’s crucial to bring items along for them so you’re not stuck dealing with “I’m bored” the entire trip.

WHAT TO TAKE FOR YOUR KIDS WHILE OFF-ROADING
- Snacks. This is essential when you have kids, from the infant years through the teenage years where teenage boys can devour a horse in one sitting. Kids have small stomachs so they get full fast, but they get hungry sooner because they are burning so many calories growing and playing, which is especially true when you’re out on the trail all day long. Pack easy-to-open snacks such as granola bars and goldfish, as well as snacks that don’t make a mess like fruit snacks and crackers. Make sure you have plenty of drinks packed as well, such as water, healthy fruit juices, and gatorade to keep you and the kids hydrated under the summer sun.
- Blankets. Riding in an ATV or a jeep all day long as your off-road tires handle the bumps can be tiresome and get uncomfortable quickly when you are constantly being jostled around while on the trail. Having blankets for your kids to sit on or use when the afternoon clouds roll in can be a lifesaver for the kids and the parents. Pillows, although an option, often can be cumbersome. If you want to take pillow along, consider buying the smaller travel pillows that don’t take up as much space.
- Sunscreen. This is essential for everyone, but taking your sunscreen along during your ATV or jeep off-road trip will prevent sunburn and make reapplying it a snap.
- Napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, and the like. Riding in an ATV or jeep with your off-road tires and wheels powering over rocks and unpaved roads can get you dirty quickly. If it hasn’t rained for a while, dust can be a problem, especially if you’re not the leader. Having wipes, napkins, paper towels, and toilet paper handy will help keep the dirt off your food and safety glasses, as well as help keep the kids’ faces clean.
