Travel Activity Bags for Kids (Part 2)

After a crazy vacation, I'm finally getting up the second part of our traveling activity bags (you can read the first part here).

Here are a few more ideas:

6)  Hidden Pictures Magazines or Books

This bag included Highlights Hidden Pictures, Hidden Pictures Playground (for preschoolers), and Usborne Search Books.

7)  Sticker Books

We also love sticker books for traveling -- and doctor's offices -- and restaurants.  (Usborne's Sticker Series is currently on special at Amazon -- Buy 3, Get 1 FREE -- but they are selling out quickly.)

8)  Travel Games

Although I didn't pack these in a bag, we enjoyed several travel games including Find It.

9)  Dry Erase Boards

Expo Boards are just right for games, drawing, and using as a lapdesk!

10)  Books and Audio Books

Reading aloud makes the time pass quickly in the car (we brought along Mrs. Piggle Wiggle)!  We also enjoyed listening to audio books. 

11)  Hand-held Video Games

Yes...the girls love their Leapsters.  I put them in a backpack with extra rechargeable batteries.  They came in quite handy during our trip to the ER (more about that later)!

We kept all of our activity bags in a little laundry basket in the back of the car.  I would just pull out a couple of bags each time we stopped.  It was a good way to rotate the activities and keep the girls occupied.

What are your favorite roadtrip activities?

These are fabulous ideas! We travel quite a bit since we live a good distance from family. I'm getting a little tired of the same audio stories over and over and over ... Your ideas are going to save my sanity yet! :)
