We drove, from Ohio to Florida. And with a sixteen hour drive ahead of us, I knew that it was going to take a lot to keep the kids occupied and entertained. Here is the solution I came up with- Travel Totes!
Each tote had two CapriSun juices, two fruit snacks, three activity packs I picked up at the dollar store (they came with stickers, crayons and a coloring book), two matchbox cars, two stuffed toys, a book and their IPods.
The totes worked great for hours. Unfortunately, no tote can hold enough entertainment to keep two preschoolers occupied for over 16 hours, so I also had their movies and a bag with their LeapPads, MobiGo and Leapster. They did a lot better than I expected for such a long ride.
There is more on our little adventure coming in the next few days.
