Last year I posted about keeping blankets in the car and out just in case box.
You can find more on them here.
This year I have found these great little totes at Dollar Tree.
My kids think that they need to pack the bedroom to go on
a trip so this is PERFECT for each kid to have their own.
They are allowed to bring one snack and drink, and a couple of toys that they choose but it MUST fit in the tote. This helps keep the car from being over loaded and the kids are compfy and happy so it makes for happy parents!
This is Captains box. He got granola bars, G2, his Leap Frog and headphones, a pen and clipboard for our scavenger hunt, and a small blanket.
The kids love when I make a scavenger hunt of things to look for on our trip.
I write things like:
...You get the idea. It keeps the kiddos busy.
