Amber that's a hard one, especially since there is so much difference in their ages. For the older ones have their music. And they can text their friends. For the younger ones have books they like and bring coloring books and crayons. There is a game that we used to play. We would go ABC and find cars from different states, or find cities starting with A and going to Z. I hope any of this helps you. Good Luck.

 The older ones do have their music and phones, and we also have a DVD player.  But I am concerned about the fighting and bickering between everyone.  Im not worried about the car.  We travel to Ca a lot so I am not to worried about the trip there.  Just the days we are there, esp since my husband isnt going.

Pack each kid a backpack with snacks, drinks, coloring books, music, video games, etc. It'll keep em busy for a while.
