What about a Magna Doodle? No worries for crayons or markers....and they make travel size ones, we used to have one in the car.

 The first thing that comes to my mind is a travel magnadoodle. My 22 month old daughter loves hers. It is no mess and no noise so good for travelling. It car rides much easier for us these days :)   If I think of anything else I'll come back right now I can't think of anything else sorry :(

I did a 24 hour trip with a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old and it went super smooth. I brought  along little paper lunch bags for every stop with a new little toy in it. You can just go to the dollar store and grab some random stuff, he'll just love it b/c it's new, but don't spend too much on it, that way you can throw it out on your way off the plane, so you don't have a ton of junk. Also, I had tied pieces of candy to a ribbon and they could take one off every hour. The kids loved that and it made time fly. Good luck, hope I helped!!

Thanks so much for the great ideas!! I love the magna doodle idea. And he doesn't have one so it will be really new to him!!

I like the dollar store toys idea too.

I hope my trip goes smoothe too!
