The two most popular games while in the park were the “find-a-license-plate-from-every-state-in-the-county” game and the “list-all-the-animals-you-see-on-this-trip” game. Our backseat drivers were given a clipboard and put in charge of tracking our progress.
Also, a car must-have when traveling great distances: audio books. We checked-out a few on CD from our library (Check-out this post about our favorite audio book title on this trip), but we also stocked our mp3 player. One boy could listen on headphones; one could nap; parents could talk. Thank you to Library2Go for the free downloads of children’s books.
