*Surprise bags: Before your trip fill multiple brown paper bags with new surprise items (ideas: snack, treat, small game, coloring item, small new toy). Each half an hour (or hour) of travel take out a new bag! Their goal is to enjoy each item during that half an hour or hour to be able and open another bag- works like a charm! - @thirdcoasttribe *Bingo: make a bingo game to find certain set of things on the trail and mark them off! - @rewild_mama *We do little races along the way and try to have destinations throughout to stop and play. Works well a lot of the time! @outandbackwithkids * Empty coffee creamer container filled with craft puff balls and pipe cleaner. Quiet fun activity! - @tlovesr *Always friends or cousins (especially as they get older) and Oreos at the half-way point! - @wanderingfamilies *Be FLEXIBLE. With or without kids, be flexible. - @tavaadventures *Take a couple of toys that are brand new to them and also paper and coloring supplies. It entertains them for a while :) - @kikassadventures *Snacks... snacks, and LOTS of snacks. - @fromthestates Hope this helps! Share your ideas below!
