      To keep the kids happy in the car, a mystery bag to be given to them about each hour. They get a map with each city marked, and they have to follow the route and ask for the bag when we get to that city. Bags are filled with snacks and small toys and games. Hopefully, it'll keep their heads out of the video games! If we ever took road trips this would be a great idea! :-) I'll save it anyway!
