I’ve tried many different things to keep my kids busy on road trips depending on their ages over the years. Right now my kids are 3, 5, 8 and this busy bag works great. I fill it up before we leave and then hand out the activities as they are needed. We also can easily grab the bag when we go out to eat or use for entertainment/quiet time at our AirB&B or hotel. It works well for this phase of parenting! I’ve linked what I can below!
