|FAMILY|Road Trip Activities

Continuing with our Bluestone preperation posts today I'm showing what we put in T's backpack for in car activities.  

I'm so sorry, you are going to have to bear with me on the photos, my original ones were really blurry so I've just had to re-take them.

There are a million and one things you could put in a child's road trip bag, but we stuck to our magic number 5 and put together a bag of things for T to do if he got bored on the journey to Bluestone. 

First, the good old iPad (mini) I downloaded some of T's favourite shows, but I can also use my phone contract to watch as an absolute last resort.

Travel bingo which I found online here the links don't work, but if you click on the picture you can print that off nicely! I added stickers and put it on a clipboard to make it easier for him.

A new book, this book was just £1.50 from sainsburys T loves a new book, just make sure you are on hand to read it!

The Storytime app, we love this app, we first saw it reviewed at our blogging buddy 3princessesand1dude and we love it!  Always able to occupy a good 20 minutes with this app!

'New' colouring and activity books and colouring pencils.  Whilst these are not strictly new, T hasn't used them yet so they will be fresh and exciting for him. I NEVER let T use felt tips in the car, colouring pencils and wax crayons don't leave marks!

For a great 'creation station' tutorial ideal for road trips check out this post from 3princessesand1dude (again!)
