So, I am still on a quest for things to keep my kiddos busy on our 8 hour roadtrip this summer. :) I know. It will probably be stressful at times, but I'm still looking forward to it! My husband and I have discussed a multitude of things in regards to this roadtrip.
1. Stop every 2 hours for a 20 (or so) minute stretch.
2. Map out local elementary schools on your route. Use their playground equipment for your kids to play on at your 20 minute stretch. (I thought this was an excellent idea!)
3. Pack snacks ahead of time in baggies.
4. Bring easy drinks :)
Now...I have another activity for the car because hey, that is my mission here, right? How many of you have the large bubble wrap lying around you home somewhere? You don't either? Well, I was lucky enough to score pieces of it from my job where we receive packages all the time!
Here's what you need:
THIS document (or something like it)
Piece of cardboard
little fingers :)
I'm horrible because this great idea got thrown away before I could photograph it!! So, I found the original website (I think)...with their tutorial!
At Oh Dee Doh, they hand drew each picture. Instead, I used clipart and placed them strategically on the paper.
