Make a Road Trip Busy Bag

Every time our family takes a road trip, I make a “busy bag” for each child to keep them occupied on the long car ride.

These are surprises placed in each seat in the van the morning of the trip, and every child looks forward to finding out what will by in her bag.

When we were very tight on money, I used brown paper lunch sacks and included a sheet of stickers, a sucker, some colored pencils, and some coloring pages.

When we have a little more room in the budget, the busy bags are nicer.

I include snacks, drinks, suckers, stickers, a little notebook, and some activities to keep them busy.

I filled a few pages in each notebook with simple instructions on noticing the cities we plan to pass through.

The idea is to keep everyone busy on long trips.
