Busy the babes on the road

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a few fun things that I've found recently that may help keep your kiddos busy on long road trips.

I've been wanting a tray for the car seat to keep snacks and toys from rolling away during a long trip and found this one via MomsMiniVan. This site is great and has hundreds of tips and ideas for making road trips more fun for everyone. You can buy the Snack and Play Travel Tray for $20 over at Traveling With Kids or at Family Travel Gear.

Also A Toy Garden had a fun "On the Go Bag" with lots of toys to keep kids busy. This one is the deluxe for about $30, they have another for $20. I thought the bags were great and might also make a nice gift for someone on the go. Personally, I figured I could just take the idea and run with it to make my own.I also found (via Goodyblog) easy idea to make a felt board activity. The activity comes from Plum Pudding . The boards are so cute and could be a fun activity for an older child to make for a younger one. I think I'm going to make some for my little one... if I am any good at it, don't be surprised if our partners get one in their box!Family on Board is another company with ideas and products to keep the kiddies happy in route! Happy traveling!
