    My kids are 4 and 5 years old. Books and music/story cd’s are a winner when we travel.

  11. Danielle says:

    Our boys (7, 4, nearly 3) love listening to audio stories in the car especially. Sparkle stories are the overwhelming favourite. We also enjoy watching for out of province license plates and name cars by brand and model. Thankfully, our kiddos travel remarkably well.

    I’ve two kids, aged 4 yrs & 4 mo. We play a few games like I spy, what color car infront etc. during car rides. At home we listen to an audio story every evening. We find most of them online, esp Aesop’s fables, and we play them over & over since they’re so short & my son enjoys them!
