  1. Thank you so much for the feature. This is a great post!

  2. Such a great list of printables and other ideas. We used a lot of this stuff on our big road trip to Canada. Thanks for the feature!

  3. Such a great collection. Love having everything in one place. Pinned and stumbled.

  4. This is a wonderful collection! Car trips with the kids just got a lot less stressful.

    Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!

    We are about to drive: Houston, Memphis, Chicago, Minnesota, Mt Rushmore, and home (with our 5 kids)- will definitely put some ideas to use:).

    Thank you for some fun printables for our vacation! I have to share with you…we call our daughter “Bug” and our son “Buddy”! I couldn’t believe it when I saw that you call your kiddos the same thing as well! Our daughter is older by three years too!
