When we went to California a couple weeks ago, I got a bunch of fun car activities for Ryan to do on the road trip. I've been wanting to make a "car box" of some sort for him for those moments when he does NOT want to go anywhere. So here is our latest "toy."
Here are the goodies inside it:
Board books, coloring books, crayons
Cookie sheet with wooden animals (from JoAnn's) that I added magnets to, and song dice I created. Roll the dice and each colored star stands for a different song to sing.
A couple different types of toddler puzzles from Dollar Tree.
Notebook, stickers, and flashcards. The stickers kept him entertained for an hour and a half on the drive. NO JOKE. I was flabbergasted. And yes, I just used that word.
Fake iphone, cars, and kitchen utensils (all from Dollar Tree).
Pom Poms and pipe cleaners. These are best used when one parent can supervise!
Snacks and an extra sippy cup. I bring snacks and a sippy cup of ice water with us every time we leave the house, but sometimes I do forget. This is for those "oops" moments.
Diapers, wipes, and boogies wipes. Also for oops moments. And (not pictured) I also have a change of clothes in here for spills or accidents.
I bought a second one of these boxes to put in the back of my car to hold returns and to load groceries into to bring inside in ONE load. Yay!
