Activities for Long Drives with a Preschooler
On Friday, Bella and I will road trip to San Antonio – a 9 hour drive. Just the drive. That’s not including pee and lunch breaks. Then the next day will be about 4 1/2 to get to Galveston.
For the cruise.
Oh? Did I mention that? Going on a Disney cruise?
I need ideas of things to do with her while driving. Things she can do on her own as well. Because my friends?
That is a heck of a long ways with just her and I while my hands are rendered incapable of doing anything but volume control and tossing back food.
We do not have a TV in the car, but I’m thinking a portable DVD player may need to be bought. Although I’m trying to figure out how she can set it on her lap without it sliding off, or being able to touch buttons that stop the movie?
Any ideas for baskets that are high enough up to her carseat or attach so she can grab food/books/toys herself?
Books on CD we both can listen to?
She is forward facing at this point because she reached the rear facing weight limit (Thank the sweet Lord for that one right about now) so I can hand her things on my own.
I’ll take any and all suggestions.
