Here’s a cool new product that looks like a real winner. It’s an activity mat and toy keeper and toy transporter all in one. It’s called the Lay-n-Go. It comes in a travel size and a much larger room size version. I recently got to road test the travel sized version with my favorite 6 year old boy. My cutie-pie nephew has a collection of Beyblades and Legos toys that he was finally able to take with him to a restaurant thanks to the Lay-n-go. The size was perfect to lay out on the table to keep him busy with his favorite toys. Once the food arrived, it was easy to just swoop it up in an instant and set it aside with all the toys contained. We could tuck it into little sister’s diaper bag, or just carry it by its handle on the side.
This is a great idea for long road trips to keep those precious items close and contained when kids are stuck in their car seats for hours, or on an airplane. It was made of a very sturdy and durable material and looks like it would last for many years of being toted around. There is a pocket that can be used to tuck in the string once you have cinched it closed to contain the toys. We gave this product two thumbs up! Get it at Amazon: Lay-n-Go

When is the last time someone read a story to you? When planning a long road trip with your kids, consider that this is one of the best ways to entertain your little travelers on the road. Kids really love audio books, and these days they are more accessible than ever.
You can check out audio books on CDs at your public library. Plan ahead and get on the waiting list to request favorite books since these are the most popular at the library. You can also download many books free from your public library if you have an account with them.
For even more options, you can download tons of FREE audio books online that are in the public domain from Librivox and then play them on your ipod or from any media player on your computer. You can also try a free site for kids audiobooks called Storynory.com or some pay sites like Audible or Amazon.
So, the next time you’re hitting the road, grab an audio book!
