Don't Head to Grandma's Without These Activity Books and Car Games

Got a road trip planned this weekend? Instead of stocking up on DVDs, try some of these activity books and games that are ideal for fun in the car. (To play in-between rounds of singing and playing “I Spy,” of course.) And if you’re not hitting the highway, you can still get miles of use out of these–they’re wonderful for trains, planes and restaurants, too.

1. Great for younger kids, this Giant Sticker Activity Book ($10) will keep the noise down by keeping them busy answering fun questions and applying stickers to pages about everything from ABCs to transportation.

2. Want something less ephemeral than traditional stickers? This cute reusable magnetic mermaid set ($24) will keep them entertained coming and going (and if your little one isn’t a fish fanatic, there’s a robot one, too).

3. For some interactive fun, a travel bingo ($7) set like this one is an activity the whole family can enjoy.

4. For an economical distraction, these sticker play sets ($3) from Mrs. Grossman’s stickers are a classic crowd-pleasing activity.
