raster2. Scavenger Traveler (Ages 5-15) 

Create a scavenger list that children can check off just by looking out of the windows. Add things, such as a tall building, a lake or pond, a bicycle, a cow, a dog, a motorcycle, a tractor, a bridge, a green car, a store, a motorhome, a church, a stop sign, a camper, a farm and a tent. Here is a free printable scavenger hunt card from MomsMiniVan.com that you can download.

3. Lego Challenge Box (Ages 6-9)

Put together a plastic box with Legos in it and these free downloadable printables of specific Lego formations by FunAtHomeWithKids.com. Then, challenge your child to duplicate them. Time it, so your child can keep track of her/his best time. Use the cover of the plastic box as an activity table that you child can hold on his/her lap in the back seat of the car.
