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.

My oldest has a DS that she can play in the car.  this entertains the other two because they can watch her.

We don't have any electronics other than toys when we take the grandbabies in the car. We don't let them use the cell phones yet because they are all under two and don't want one thrown out the window or tossed a bit too hard and broken. If we had something a bit bigger with apps we could dowload for them, they would really love it and one of us fould sit in the back with them annd teach them. Right now, we point out trees, trucks, cows, horses, etc and it entertains them forever. They also like to try to color and talk on their kid phones which we make a game out of : )

 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.
