Road Trip Activity Bag Ideas

We travel a lot during the summer, so I’ve gotten really good at preparing for spending hours in the car. These Road Trip Activity Bag Ideas are a great way to keep little ones happy, saving your sanity without using a screen!

Of course, the key to any road trip is to be prepared. That starts with making sure that your car is in top shape. I like to take my car to the Walmart Automotive Care Center to get the oil changed before hitting the road. It’s easy and convenient — I can go shopping for snacks and other necessities while my car is worked on.

Pennzoil Oil Change at Walmart

With more than 175,000 miles on my car, I know the importance of using the best motor oil to prolong the life of my engine. The Walmart automotive specialist recommended Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic oil for my car — and I listened!

It provides the best cleanliness and protection. With PurePlus™ Technology, the Platinum® motor oil is proven to keep pistons cleaner than the toughest industry standard. And Pennzoil products help clean out the sludge that lesser oils leave behind. Plus, they’ll allow you to drive an extra 550 miles per year than if you were driving with a dirty engine!

Pennzoil oil changes will be on Rollback at Walmart Automotive Care Center stores from  June 10 to Sept. 9, 2015:

  1. High Mileage is $35.88, compared to the regular Walmart price of $39.88. {Industry standard price is $46}
  2. Platinum Full Synthetic is $45.88, compared to the regular Walmart price of $49.88. {Industry standard price $66}

While your car is being service, you can shop for the items needed to make these Road Trip Activity Bag Ideas!

Here’s what you need for these Road Trip Activity Bag Ideas

  1. Three-Ring Zipper Pouches
  2. White Card Stock
  3. Large Binder Rings

For each activity bag, cut a sheet of card stock to fit inside a zipper pouch. Connect your bags with the binder rings for an easy way for your child to flip through the different activities. Here are just a few that you can include in the pouches:

Velcro Craft Sticks – Add pieces of velcro to the ends of colorful craft sticks for an easy way to build different shapes.

Explore Bugs – Small plastic toys and a magnifying glass can provide a whole new way to observe the world.

Felt Fishing Game – Check out the instructions for this fun activity over at Suitcases and Sippy Cups.

Lacing Sheet – Punch holes in a piece of foam and string a shoelace through them. This can help your preschooler work on hand-eye coordination.

Alphabet Slider – Practice reading with this easy activity from Kids Activities Blog.

Chalk Board – A small chalk board and some chalk can allow your child to draw as many times as they’d like during your trip!
