Activities for the Car

I don't know what your car rides are like, but ours can be a little chaotic at times:)  Cheerios and Goldfish litter the floor and two little girls giggle, scream and demand all sorts of things from Mommy.   I finally decided it was time to put together a set of activities and resources JUST for the car!

First on the list is the Aquadoodle, a gift from Grandma Moffatt!  We love this!!  Thanks Grandma!!  Just put a little water in the pen and you are good to go!  Kids can doodle with out the mess!  I especially love this because my 23 month old can't draw all over her legs with it:)  You can even pick them up at Target.

I also love this Road Trip Bingo game Tamara at TLC posted about!  Just print, laminate and kids will be busy looking for all sorts of objects and signs!  My 4 year old will LOVE this!!

As far as those messy snacks go...why not try a cheerio bracelet?  Just use a pipe cleaner, add cheerios and twist together.  This will easily buy you 10 minutes of mess-free snack time!

Wait, wait!  Save that for our car ride!

We always have tons of books in the car.  Here are a few the girls' favorites:
Biscuit Wants to Play (My First I Can Read) Pinkalicious Fancy Nancy and the Delectable Cupcakes (I Can Read Book 1) Jesus and His Friends (I Can Read! / Beginner's Bible, The)

I would love to hear what you do to keep sane in the car!

My son loves Color Wonder books for car rides. Great at restaurants too. He is into maze books so I have a few dry erase ones. Anything portable for breakfast is great...dry cereal, fruit bars.
