For the Road: Make a Trip-Journal

Keep the kids busy in the car by having them make a Trip-Journal or Scrapbook of their own. Give everyone a big spiral bound sketchpad and a box of crayons or markers. Each day of the trip or for each event along the way, draw a picture of what you did that day, or draw a map of where you went, and write about it. You can also attach souvenirs.

Even children too young to write can draw pictures, and then you can write in the details for them by asking them about the picture. Be sure to include the date since this will be come a treasure forever.

I couldn’t agree more, writing in journals should be rediscovered.

I have been to your site many times for quick tips =) Well we are going on our very 1st roadtrip WOOO HOOO (Im hoping I feel this way the entire trip) We will be driving from northern Indiana to Walt Disney World in September with 4 kids ages 4,5,7,9 =) I have spent a week so far stalking your site its the best one available!! I love the journal idea very simple I almost printed out a bunch of pages to string together, instead I will be buying 4 spriral bound sketch books to inspire imagination and creativity. I figure this will double as a sticker book since I have sticker lovers. And maybe even an autograph book? 1 book for everything? Ill be looking for a pretty sturdy sketch book. I have found so much great/valuable info on your site please keep it coming =)
