Ever since I’ve been a little girl, we’ve been on vacation for Memorial Day weekend. One way to make the road trips go faster were games.
I love that family has been able to take the same trip with Mila too. Besides last year of course. It’s so sentimental that I get to see Mila enjoy the same place I did growing up. Plus, she LOVES the beach.
I was a little nervous for the road trip with a three year old, so I remembered our games. This year, Mila has been into tic tac toe, so we made it road trip friendly!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A baking sheet
- Bottle/milk caps
- Washi tape
- An amazing road trip!
This is a simple activity to put together. Let’s just say you’ll have more time teaching your toddler the game.
All you do is put a tic tac toe board with washi tape on the baking sheet.
Then, use peel and stick magnets to put on the inside of caps. This way they can easily stick on your tic tac toe board without you losing them! You can also use other magnets with a hot glue gun.
After that, it’s time to play!
We used a mason jar to keep all the caps in one place, but you could just as easily slip the whole baking sheet in the back of the seat.
This was so easy to use in the car. It withstood passing it back and forth with my crazy toddler.
I also loved that we were able to reuse bottle caps and didn’t have to buy a special board. Once we’re done with it, I’ll just take the tape off, wash it, and clean with the baking sheet again.
Although, I think it might be tricky to take away from her since she likes the game so much!
