Cool Beverages for the Road Trip

The day before we go on a road trip or just out and about, I freeze several plastic bottles of water, juice, and tea. Then the morning we leave, I just place them in the cooler and within a couple of hours we have ice cold beverages! Always be careful not to fill it to the top to allow for expansion or you'll end up with a mess in the freezer.

I suggest using empty water or soda bottles for this since they have the screwed on cap. Plus if you (or the kids) loses one of the bottles, it won't be such a loss. You can also do this when packing a lunch for yourself or your child as it will help keep the rest of the items cold. Just be sure to wrap it in a paper towel so condensation won't get the rest of the stuff wet.
