A peaceful, productive way for a child to pass her time is a coloring book and a package of crayons; whether in a waiting room, in the car, at school, or other places. It can be a healthy imaginative release and, for numerous parents, a much-needed respite! You can also add decoration to a bigger appliance box that should appear like the Sponge bob's Pineapple house or the Krusty Krab. Don't forget to cut a door so your younger child can play during the party. Every Sponge bob fan knows how much he loves to blow bubbles... but do they know this "special technique"? Supply each guest with a bottle of bubble solution. They can simply try the special technique or you can show a bubble blowing.
The net, activity booklets in dollar stores, family restaurants, or even sometimes at public libraries are sources of coloring pages, simple black and white drawings most commonly of cute cartoon characters. Before the road trip take the kids to the stores so they can pick out their road trip coloring books and other activities. This is an even better choice because the kids will settle beforehand which type of activity is most interesting and the best for them. Tell them that you'll hold onto the items until the road trip and they'll spend the time until the trip in anticipation of playing with their new toys. They'll be that much more likely to stay involved with their coloring books and crayons on the trip rather than on each other, so you'll be that much more relaxed while on the drive.
