Car trips

We are anticipating a car trip with our four kiddos.  We will be driving roughly 16-18 hours one way to visit friends in Ohio.  With that said I am thinking we need to come up with some ideas of what to have our kiddos do while we are on the road.

Here are some of my thoughts.

~ Alphabet Game (finding each letter of the alphabet on signs along the road)
~ License Plate Game (finding license plates from across the US and writing them down to see how many we can find)
~ box with paper, crayons and pencils (using a pizza box works really well because you have storage and a hard surface to write on.  You can even tether the pencil/crayons with a string so that they don't get dropped.)
~ Travel Scavenger Hunt (find different objects, locations, buildings along the way)

What other games can you think of that will help pass the time on a long car ride?
