Do you also dread long car trips, and listening to the same kids’ song on repeat? We just freshened up our road trip playlist to add songs that our kids love… and that wouldn’t drive us crazy! We searched for children’s songs by artists we have enjoyed listening to, like Jack Johnson and The Barenaked Ladies.
