If you’re like me, for long road trips you hog-tie the kids in the trunk of the car. Haha! Kidding! I kid. (I feel the need to state such things clearly, now, rather than risk someone thinking I’m serious. Want Not does not endorse the transport of your children in the trunk.)
Anyway, we generally hit the Dollar Tree or somewhere similar before we set out on a trip, and one of the kids’ favorite things to get is those big books of word searches. But I think the next time we travel, I’m going to whip them up some custom puzzles with words related to our destination, maybe.
Or maybe just a “Things Mama Doesn’t Want You To Do On This Trip” puzzle. Though it’d have to be pretty big to fit DONTHITYOURSISTERIMEANIT in there.
