Very nice list!

We will most likely (dh and I) be taking a trip this summer back to Arkansas to visit my family. This means that all 3 grands (2,6,7) will be going too since I am the baby-sitter.
Individually wrapped small toys (new ones or old favorites) or activity bags to hand out at intervals during the trip
This is a wonderful tip--and I always do this. I will hit the dollar stores, cheap toy aisle at Big Lots, etc and buy up cheap toys, coloring books and markers, etc that I will then dole out on the trip. I save some for the return leg so they don't get bored. This is a 2 day trip for us so it's going to take a lot of toys. I need to get busy collecting.

THIS trip though I am very seriously thinking of buying a vcr to use in the back seat. I'd love to trade my Jimmy in on a mini-van before then but dh and I hate car payments and we always buy new, so.....If/when we do trade I'm going to look into a built in VCR.
