Vacation Prep: Keeping 2 Kids Under 3 Occupied on a LONG Road Trip

With vacation looming, I've been Googling my brains out for ideas on how to keep the kiddies and us from going cuckoo during a long drive south. Besides Valium for my hubs and turkey and warm milk for the kids, here's the list of my must-pack items for the car:

I'll make sure to report back on what worked and what bombed. Honestly, though, I have no idea what to do with the baby besides let her manhandle an iPhone. DEAR GOD, PLEASE LET HER SLEEP...A LOT!

What's worked for you guys? Spill, please!


  1. Christina, my son was about 3 and we gave him his own road map /atlas and he would just feel like he was helping us so we wouldn't get lost.. it worked wonders believe it or not. My mother in law gave us the idea. Other than that we had pretty much all the same as you, good luck, and I pray for sleep for the little one ;)

  2. Ruth, that's an awesome idea! Thanks!
