We drove!! Call us nuts! Here are couple things I did to help!
I found this on pinterest. It worked wonderfully with the little ones. It was great for treats and toys too. Click the pic to go to the original post.
Traveling with 5 kids in a van is no piece of cake. So I took my classroom behavior chart and shrunk it for the car!!
Everyone started on Green! If they got to red they lost a treat at our next stop! It worked out pretty good! A few times we saw red and it was quickly turned around. My 3 year old hated when he went to yellow! Now we are using it in the house. Love it! Click on the photo to get your own. I didn't make it a pdf so you can change the words to fit your needs.
I got to read a few books from my favorite author: Barbara Freethy! I love her books and my Kindle Fire! What a great way to bring books on a vacation!
