When your children have things to do in the car, they are less likely to fight, argue and engage you in distracting conversation. Here are five ways you can keep your little ones busy in the backseat.

1. Go Bags

Have a go bag for each of your children. Purchase a small backpack or other type of bag for each of your kids and let them pack them with things they can do in the car.

2. Music

Let your children choose a playlist before your journey to prevent arguing over the radio station. Even better, if you can find an audio book to play, your children may be quietly engaged for the whole trip.

3. Play Games

Come up with an in-car game to keep the kids occupied. Give them a piece of paper and a pencil and tell them to make a mark every time they see a green car. Tell them to point to every blue house they see. There are dozens of games you can play in the car. It won’t keep the kids completely silent, but it will give them something to focus their attention on if you make the game age appropriate.

4. Movies
