Ha ha ha!! This is too funny I just saw this post. We are actually going on a road trip leaving on Sunday! I found online games like car bingo that you can print out and I bought colored pencils since crayons can melt in the car. I also have a portable DVD player and we have lots of books and magazines. For snacks I got alot of dried goods and fruit. We got granola bars, fruit snacks, grapes, jif to go cups, that kinda stuff. Oh and I bought juice but only for when we stop for meals. I have water bottles for the rest of the time. Here is the website where they have lots of good ideas. Good luck! Where are you headed??

For our road trips each kids packs a bag. My oldest packs books, coloring books, a notebook, her lapser explored. My youngest packs a bunch of toys. We pack a bag of pretzels, crackers, chips, snap peas, veggie strips, fruit snacks and an ice chest full of drinks.
