Do you use any electronics to keep them occupied?
no, my kids read books, talk to each other or play with their toys. We don't go on very many long trips. We are driving to Disney this year and will be getting a dvd player for the to watch movies.
Books, Matchbox cars, and doodle boards.
My oldest has a DS that she can play in the car. this entertains the other two because they can watch her.
For long drives we bring dvds, their leapsters, and other little toys. But for local drives its the radio usually, and we talk, tell jokes, that sorta thing.
On road trips we take leapsters, books, doodle pad's, aqua doodles, our ipad, and various other things to keep the kids entertained. We do use our ipad on a regular basis in the car. My son LOVES to play all the games.
We have a dvd player, and they take cars or small toys, and color books, and almost never fails my 2 yo goes to sleep and 10 month old take a few toys but she either sleeps or just watches around her......
I used to have books, small toys, etc. in the car when they were little - then portable DVDs.....now they just have their phones and their ipods LOL (mine are teenagers, now).
