    My kids love using pipe cleaners in the car! They make all sorts of things with them! (I’d be nervous about the string, too!)

    Magnets work so well in the car! I know this sounds silly, but I gave my three year old a cheap box of tissues, and he pulled them all out and thought it was hilarious. He did it several times. Totally worth the dollar it cost me!

      Doesn’t sound silly to me at all!
      Whatever works when traveling! Mine have pulled tissues out at home; I just stuff them back in and figure they’re just as good! :)

    Great ideas!

    We use colored pencils in place of crayons because of the hot Texas sun.

      Colored pencils are a great substitute for crayons in hotter areas! :)

    We are going on a road trip this month and I have been trying to think of what the kids might enjoy doing in the car. Thank you for all of the great ideas! I like the idea of splitting up the supplies into individual bags.

      And you can find some cute magnets! Or, even make them yourselves if you print off the computer and glue them to magnet backs.

    I love these traveling entertainment tips.

    I especially love the Post-in Note idea. How simple, fun and affordable.

    And those lap trays are awesome too!

      Kids just love sticking up their artwork — this is an easy way they can do it in the car!

    I’m visiting from the Montessori Monday Linkup. Thanks for the tips! We’re taking a road trip with our 3 kids in a couple of weeks. I’m definitely going to use the cookie sheet and magnets idea!

    Thanks for sharing these! I hadn’t thought of how very useful a cookie sheet could be on a long trip! I’ll definitely be employing that strategy soon!

    I always travel with my kids almost every weekend. I love the idea about keeping books in the car. I think I need to keep several book in the car so that I don’t have to find and bring one every time we go travel.

      We have some that stay in the car at all times. I try to change them every month or so. :)

    Great idea for the little one! Right now, we’re entertaining him with Power Rangers or anything with fishes, turtles, etc. on youtube while we’re driving. When he gets older, we will definitely use these and store in the car. Thanks so much for sharing with us @ My Favorite Posts SHOW OFF Weekend Blog Party!

    Brilliant! I need ideas for our upcoming 11 hour drive to visit the grandparents. Did you find the magnetic dress up dolls at the Dollar Tree, and was it recently? My girls would love, love them!

      I found the magnetic dress up dolls at the Dollar General, for a dollar. They seem to have them every time I go, or something similar. :)

      Have a great trip!

    This is very similar to how I travel with the kids. I don’t have a tablet or a portable DVD player, so keeping them entertained with activities and books is key!

    Great ideas. We’re actually heading out of town tomorrow four our first trip of the summer. I avoid stickers now though because there are still stickers stuck to my one window that I need to scrape off sometime. Safe travels this summer.

      LOL — Yes! Stickers tend to do that! We had a strict rule that they could only go on paper…but I do have a few that somehow wound up on the windows… :)

      Have a great summer!

    These are great! I’m definitely going to look for some magnet books and I’m “stealing” that Cheerios on pipe cleaners idea too. Even if my daughter doesn’t make the bracelet, the snack alone will keep her happy for a bit. :)

    • OneMommy
      June 21, 2014

      The Cheerios and pipe cleaner idea remains a hit here for that reason — craft and snack all in one! :)
