Road Trip Kids Activity Bag

This was another favorite bag, particularly the white board, markers, and magnets. Coloring with new supplies is always fun!

Activity Bag #6

  • Magnetic white board
  • Dry erase markers
  • Magnets
  • Old sock for erasing
  • Jigsaw puzzle

The dry erase markers, even the low oder ones, are a little stinky, so crack a window. But Elliot had a great time using all the different colors and erasing.

As for magnets, we brought along number and alphabet magnets and also the hand and foot print magnets that we made a while ago. I made some more magnets with the Cricut, a cereal box, scrapbook paper, and Mod Podge, but I left my pictures of the project at home. I’ll post about that when we get back.

Having a pleasant road trip just requires a little planning and preparation, and these 6 car activity bags made our road trip go by quickly with minimal tantrums or other problems. I hope they can do the same for you. Happy road trip!

I know how much my grand-daughters love playing with Magnets, but I never thought of dry erase markers for them. Is it easy to get off their skin if they get it on them?

You know, I’m not sure. He didn’t really get the markers on himself. Maybe do an experiment on your own hand or something first. They’re definitely not washable, but I was sitting right next to him and able to watch what he was doing with the markers. Good point though!

Old sock for erasing is brilliant! And in my experience (unfortunately!), the dry erase markers don’t come off of skin very easily, nor do they come out of clothing, but that might just have been my particular brand. I think you can use the washable Crayola markers on a white board, though, and just use a wet wipe to erase. That might work, and wouldn’t have the smell, either.

These are brilliant ideas! We’re planning a road trip to Myrtle Beach next spring and I love the idea of packing bags to last for one hour. Our boys will be 4 and 6 at the time of the trip, so the embroidery hoop with yarn is genius! They will LOVE it! Thanks for these wonderful ideas!
