Traveling with kids can be exhausting and many other things. How many times have you hears "are we there yet?" We used to take long car trips as a kid and we loved to play the travel bingo game. Our set was just a simple cardboard with red plastic windows you would slide over to cover the object you had spotted along the way. If we forgot the cards, we would make up our own games. Such as - how many different states could you spot licenses plates from, or how many blue cars could you find, how many cows - whatever you want.
