Best Toys for Road Trips

If your kid can do the iPad for 6 hours straight, good for you! But for the rest of us, we have to switch it up. So, we tested out a bunch of road trip toys to give you the lowdown on our favorites…

Good for ages 2-5 years. Lets kids color with no mess. Kids don’t have to worry about staying in the lines. As soon as it dries they can do it again.  You can use a hair dryer to wipe away the color so you can start from scratch.

For ages 6+ but it’s kind of hard. It’s like a puzzle.  There are cards which you have to match the contraption with.  Great that its self-contained and kids are using their brains.
