Instead of an iPad holder for long car rides and road trips, put the iPad in a plastic bag and "attach" to the seat. You basically just stab the metal headrest into the plastic, and it holds it perfectly in place - for much less $!
Road Trip Snack Boxes for Kids - I made these for this summer's trip and it was a huge hit. I found the boxes in the craft section at Wal-Mart and included a variety of salty and sweet treats. Then on each leg of our trip (divided up into 1-2 hour increments), they could choose one or two things to eat. Very convenient on us as parents and the kids love it, too.
This word building activity travel kit is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers for road trips and long car rides and you can customize it with sight words, color words, word families, or whatever your child is currently learning. Great for a summer learning activity.
