Entries in roadtrip roundup (11)
I love cheap, easy but smart solutions for anything really, but especially car travel.
Click through to see what we found this week!
My kids love to travel. They are great in the car but they constantly tell me that their favorite part of going on a roadtrip is seeing what I've found to keep them busy.
First some tips for a road trip no matter what age:
While we are mourning the ending of our big summer vacation many of you are still preparing to leave on yours. Even if you aren't going on vacation this is a great activity to keep in the car.
A DIY Magnetic Travel Activity Tray from Craft, Interrupted.
When my boys were little we'd make little sticker scenes but with magnets and a cookie sheet for them to play with in the car and they loved it. I really love this more 3D version.
Go check out the post over at Craft, Interrupted for the how to, the other versions, AND printables!
Here are some products we thought were fun/useful on Roadtrips, plus any we've already mentioned. Don't forget to pack a small booklight if you're traveling in the dark (test it out before you do to make sure it doesn't bug the driver)
1. Artfolio from Rock a Bow
2. Triptivities from Kidstop
3. Flip to Win Hangman from Kidstop

So we've established what to bring, what to eat, and even given you something to bring, but what do you DO during a roadtrip?
I thought I'd present a list full of items to bring on a roadtrip to keep the boys entertained and smiling. Tomorrow (well at the point you're reading this probably TODAY) will be a list of things we DO on Roadtrips as well as Etsy/web finds Friday for fun items to buy in preperation for Roadtrips!
