Looking for Kid Car/Plane activity ideas
Wondering if we can start a thread with ideas for things to keep kids (let's say ages 2 - 10) occupied on long car or plane rides. We have a couple trips coming up so I would love to get my arsenal ready (and if I need to buy something - I can have time to find it on sale!)
Here's some to start:
1) DVD player
2) Handheld video game
3) Alphabet game (car)
4) License Plate game (car)
5) Doodle Pro (magnetic drawing board)
7) Reading books
8) promise of a hotel/campground w/a pool (car!)

A friend of mine was raised in a big family that moved a lot so the mom and dad gave them a roll of change and they had to give a coin to the parents each time they did something like fight or ask 'are we there yet???". When they reached the destination the leftover money was their spending money for a treat.
We do color wonder markers , Laurie Berkner CDs (this has some freaky magic power over our 3 kids), board books to read from the front of the van to all 3), and harmonicas. The harmonicas are not as obnoxious as you might think, esp. for 1 child. It is kind of relaxing to me even. The harmonicas are $5 at cracker barrel.

LOVE the roll of change idea - we recently went on (only) a 1.5 hr drive & the kids about put us the roof!
we just flew with our 2 year old - stickers and playdoh worked well with him, also coloring books and crayons
