  • Kids enjoy writing postcards to friends and relatives, so buy some pre-stamped ones, or buy them along the journey. You can choose ones with destination photos or blank ones for your children to provide the art.
  • A scavenger hunt is fun for all ages. Come up with a list of things to look for in advance. For example, you can include things like flowers or cars of a specific color, flashing lights, a hotel, a billboard with a certain picture on it, or anything else general and relatively easy to spot.
