Star 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)
6) Snacks
7) Reading books
8) promise of a hotel/campground w/a pool (car!)

Thanks!

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.
