(I got the Travel Notebook idea from Jamin', and this is the first time we're trying them out. I think this will be a fun way to learn while we're riding down the road!)
Each child will have a 3-ring binder with the following: (I know some of this might be a bit much for our 3-yr. old, but she wants to do everything the big kids do.)
-Travel Activity Book Cover
-Road Signs Bingo -
-Car Bingo: Print out the cards below, give one to each child along with a crayon, and have them put an X over the things they see on the road. Four in a row is a Bingo!
-Check out this State License Plate game - Include alphabetical list of the fifty states, a U.S. map, or both.
-U.S.A. and individual state maps to color
-coloring/activity sheets for state symbols
-Great resource for information activity sheets for each of the fifty states.
For more travel fun ideas, see my Road Trip Survival Guide.
I'll be back in a couple of days after we settle in at home. :)
**Update** We're home, and we really enjoyed these games and activities. I wanted to let you know that the State License Plate game was a favorite for Giggly Girl, Superman, and Kurt and me. Looking for different plates made the time go by quickly, and we found twenty-two different states! Sweet Pea mainly enjoyed doodling and coloring on the state maps, flags, and birds. :)
