I love the little word find books you buy in the check out line at the supermarket.

knitting, crochet, cross stitch, or embroidery are all good car crafts, but they might make you feel car sick.

the only other thing I ever bring is my cd player.  have fun!   Cheesy

If other people are in the car get your self a couple of mad lib books or I think you can do a google search and find some on the www for free. They are very short reading so should not make you sick and everyone gets to play along. I still love travel bingo and you can find that in most bookstores in the kids section ( or you could probably make some yourself) . Books on tape or cd are available at the public library here. I always have one in my car. andf my all time fav car activity when I am not driving is 3d firework glasses. If you can find them, they make beautiful rainbows everywhere and are way cool at night whenthe lights are speeding by! Cheap too... I have never paid over 1.50 for a pair. Lastly... again if you are not alone... print out some lyrics for your fav songs and have a sing along... just skip the bottles of beer on the wall.... Happy Trails! Grin

My husband and I take lots of road trips.  We always take a box or stack of Trivial Persuit cards.  We're traveling and increasing our silly trivia knowledge!  Also, we usually have our camera on hand to snap pics along the way. Especially of surprising funny town names or signs.

I do my best crafting on road trips. :-) My brother and I have a Long commute on Sundays and Mondays and he always drives so I craft. I usually work on embroidery, stitching around felt appliques ironed onto the fabric before the trip, sometimes I take sharp little scissors, thread, and some canvas and just make some random toy and handstich it. It REALLY makes the time go faster. Usually we get where we're going and I'm like "Can we drive around the block like 10 times so I can finish this?"

Try tracing some cute patterns or shapes on boring purses, shirts, socks, whatever and stiching the pattern on the road.

i love to knit in the car - you can get so much done in what would otherwise be down time.  It's great.  And if you're doing something relatively simple, you don't even have to look at it, so you won't get car sick.
