Roadtrip Ready: Keep Them Busy Baskets


Hey guys! I'm Staci from lizard & ladybug. I am loving the Roadtrip Ready series that Kelli is having!! I'm thrilled she's having me today! I don't know about you but having 2 little ones (4 and 6) in the car for more than a Target run can be stressful. In the event we have to take a long trip, I've put together some baskets for each of them full of goodies to keep them quiet busy :)
 I ran to Dollar Tree to pick up a few essentials. Baskets, lined paper, magnetic letters, flash cards and pizza pans. The pizza pans are magnetic and make the perfect 'board' to use the letters.

I also added some crayons and a crayon box.

 I found these cool 'window' markers (anyone try them?) I thought the kids would get a kick out of writing on their windows.
The kids can draw, play with the letters, practice their math (lizard) and letters (ladybug) And if all else fails, I have candy :)
There you have it. My "Keep Them Busy Baskets".
Thanks for letting me visit & I hope you'll stop by my blog and say Hi!
Pin It!

I love the idea of a basket! My girls use fabric bags to put their stuff in but a basket would stay firm and hold their stuff better. Good idea!

This is a great idea! I have just recently seen the window markers and I need to pick them up.

Travel baskets are such a great idea. And those window markers look like such fun!

We LOVE our window markers! Also, a pack of sidewalk chalk to use when you stop at roadside parks -- sometimes a little outside art time is good! On the back of your pizza pan, use some duct tape to grid a tic-tac-toe board; grab 2 sets of matching magnets and that's a quick game for the older kiddos!

Love the idea of the window markers! I'll have to grab some before our big GA trip. Thanks for sharing.

I let each of my kids pack their own bag with whatever they want and then I pack a separate one full of things like this that I think will keep them entertained! Great ideas! :)
