we're off camping tomorrow for a few days. Unfortunately. I'd have loved to go for a month! that's not the point tho, the point is - how do we keep the little one (21 months old) occupied on the journey? It's meant to be a 2-hour drive but on a sunday, in little country lanes could be up to 3 hours really.
Some background: he loves books and noisy/musical toys, doesn't fall asleep easily when out and about (actually could scream for quite a long while before dropping off in the car), and he's never been on a drive longer than 40 mins.
It's only me and DH to entertain him, and DH is driving. So mostly me really.
My best friend travels everywhere (including abroad) by train with her 2. the best ever tip she gave me was to buy some new to you toys, books etc. give one of them to the child every half an hour and rather than meals do little snacks of finger food again within the half an hour. charity shops are great for finding things really cheaply that are new to your child like books and little toys. We also still have our selection of nursery rhyme tapes which i can sadly remember the order of still!
