In the Bag

With a whopping four successful road trips under my belt, I feel like I’ve achieved a higher rank from these armed forces of motherhood. Activity bags are now my number one weapon against bored, seat-kicking, sister-hitting, whiny children. And they look positively cute! The best one by far was last summer’s trip to the grandparents. The long stretches of highway have resulted in a lengthy list of things no mommy soldier should be without.
At ease, moms.
Here are a few ideas for items to include in your Travel Activity Bag:
• Bubbles (with a reminder to blow them out the window)
• Ring Pops or Lollipops
• Dry Erase Board with markers
• New coloring books
• Cookie Sheet for magnetic lap desk
• Travel versions of favorite games
• New Journal
• Paper for drawing
• Small cars
• $1 store finds

• Word search book
• Audio Books
