Back Seat Activities for Kids on a Holiday Road Trip
Yes, it's possible to keep the kids entertained without "plugging them in."
Start with the tips I shared with Fox 46's Page Crawford (hint: pack a roll of aluminum foil).
Car games rock!
If you never played the 50-state license plate game or Car BINGO here’s your chance to become a kid again. Mom's MiniVan offers dozens of downloads like those I showed in the video clip (including car BINGO). Add a toaster oven pan as a lap desk and some crayons, and you're ready to go.
Fun with roadside monuments
Okay, this one isn't for the "back seat" but worth including. Have a blast staging family snapshots with roadside attractions and monuments. Dress them in your scarves and hats for even more fun. When you get home, make a collage for the refrigerator of your escapades.
