When they’re not busy playing with their goodie bag surprise, I put together some other road trip activities for them to do. They’re active boys, so I picked things that will keep their hands and minds busy. Everything I used I was able to find at the Dollar Tree, the local hardware store, or I repurposed from what I already had at home. And they’re great learning toys they can play with when we’re back home.
