Taking two young children on a long road trip can be hard without
anything for them to do. So, I had the girls pick out several
I found this idea at iammommahearmeroar.blogspot.com (I love her). This box (which we already had) fit perfectly between the girl's car seats. This allowed them to pick something out and then put it away when they were done. These are the items in the box: homework, crayons (which, by the way, have a tendency to melt in a hot car), coloring books, an Etch-a-Sketch, a Game Boy with games, DVD's and players, and small crafts. We had two rules: 1) when you are done with whatever you are playing with put it back, and, 2) you can only do whatever is in the box while in the car!!! We are definitely doing this again.
They loved it and so did we.
Thanks, Cheri, for the idea.
