Keepin’ Em Busy in the Car!

So today was the last day of school and I’m facing three months of summer with both excitement and trepidation. Travel is definitely part of the excitement of vacation and you can face it with less trepidation if you’ve got great travel activities to keep the kids busy.

Road Trip

I really recommend the great travel games from Melissa and Doug. With the pieces firmly attached to the board, you can have all the fun without the tragedy of pieces spilling out of reach on the floor. I seriously have the USA License Plate Game
and Hangman in the car with me at all times, but next I would add Travel Bingo and the Travel Memory Game. Bring these out as needed (or when the ipad battery dies)!

How I would have loved this as a child! It’s the type of plaything that will one day be saved up in the attic for future generations.
