It is hard to believe we are only three days from departure for our big summer adventure to Portland, Oregon! We will be stopping every 7-10 hours of driving to stay in a hotel, we will have the boys swim at each stop to get their joints moving again. We will shower, eat a healthy breakfast, and get back on the road for the day. These chunks of time are so long for young children, so I’ve spent the last few weeks perusing yard sales and sales at local toy stores to get some car entertainment at reasonable prices.
Board boooks for the little boy. (and probably big one, too.) I just got these at yard sales.
Metal cookie sheets with magnetic letters. I got one at a yard sale for 1.00 and one was given to me by a sweet friend. Both had the magnetic letters already, but super easy to find at dollar trees.
