Play-A-Ways - A play a-way is an audio book in it's own mp3 type player. They are available at our public library. When we go on a long trip (like this one to Michigan) The kids and sometimes the adults get some Play-a-ways from the library. Our kids love books and listening to books in the car is one of their favorite ways to pass the time,
Madlibs, Random and other word games.
Random is a game I was taught in 1986. I have been a devotee for more than a quarter century now. Here is a previous post about it. Mad Libs and Random are great games because they are both fun and educational. I guess mostly fun.
Kid Directed Play.
The kids create games that they play on car rides. The ones they play most often are the frowning game, which is very similar to Make me Laugh and the Dolphin Game, where they pretend they are workers or animals in a zoo. Amy and I can entertain ourselves just listening to them.
We do lots of other things on car trips, but that's a pretty good list for now. I'll be back tomorrow with some Donuts.
