  • pipe cleaners are a great car-friendly activity! crayola has those "color wonder" markers and coloring books that only allow them to color on the special girls (5 and 3) like to play "i-spy", someone says "i spy with my little eye something that is ___" then say a color or a shape of something and everyone has to guess what it is that you for snacks, pack a cooler if you have one. those yogurt tubes are pretty mess free (not sure for a 2 year old though)...dry could make a trail mix with them before hand of their favorite small snacks...hope you have a fun and safe trip!

  • I say a portable dvd player with their Fav shows & some little coloring books with crayons.. As for snacks we do apples bananas and grapes plus milk and juice. and maybe stop at md's for chicken nuggets and apples

  • For my almost 4 year old, I have a Mobigo. There are lots of different games for different ages and all of the games are teaching games, but all in the popular kids themes. The Mobigo is a little like a NIntendo DS, but for kids. It has a touch screen, but that slides up and it has a full keyboard. He loves the thing and it kept him occupied on our plane trip. Crayons and coloring books are always good, too. I do agree with the portable DVD players. Goldfish are always a hit with kids.

  • give each child a car color and see what child sees 10 cars 1st.Look for plates from different states see how many pass u in 1 hour. magnetic games can be helpful,grab a new cookie sheet at the $$ store and some magnetic ABC,checkers,.... As for snacks,try cut up fruit,gold fish,peanut butter/jelly sandwiches,juice boxes,fresh veggies/dip. Have fun and be safe
