Ideas needed. Please pass this post on...
We have a few 20 +/- hour car trips coming our way. Suggestions on what to do to keep children ages 7,5,2 entertained?
I am sure that the 7 year old will be reading most of the way. The 5 year old will be watching movies. But the 2 year old? I've got nothing.
He enjoys watching some movies, but not for very long periods of time. He loves eating, so that's an option..but I want him to fit in to his clothes by the time we reach our destination.
Here are some other ideas I have read about:
1.) books on tape.
2.) Coloring books and crayons
3.) Dollar Store random gifts. Wrap and give every few hundred miles.
4.) Here are some ideas I found for an airplane trip:
Lace-up cards or cotton reels
Dress up doll
Small toy cars, diggers, planes
Bendy dolls or stretchy aliens
Wind-up walking toys.
Any other ideas/suggestions?
