My family is going to be taking a 550 mile road trip this summer. With the way that we are going it is going to be about a 12 hour trip. We have 3 boys (ages 4, 6, and 11). I'm trying to think of ways to entertain them. I have already bought brand new crayons for each one of them and planned on making them their own box of treasures. I bought 3 small tote like boxes that are about the size of a shoe box and want to fill it with goodies for each of them. Any suggestions on what to get? For some reason I'm at a lost on this one.
Also any suggestions on how to keep them from fighting in the backseat?
One thing my daughter used to really enjoy was pipe cleaners. She could make all kinds of things with those (great if your kids are imaginative). It kept her busy for a long time, and it didn't make a mess in the car.
Another thought is to pack little wrapped surprises and let them have a new prize periodically (I always did this when we flew). I found little things at the dollar store and the party store.

Then there are the old stand by's. Checking off each state licence plate and trying to find them all. And tallying road kill by animal and one category for the unknowns. LOL
