We left a day early for our Christmas break and ended up driving in the car from about 4:30-8pm. The kids were pretty bored since there was nothing to see.
Any suggestions for surviving nighttime car rides like that? We took breaks, and at one point we let our 2 year old use my iPhone apps because she was crying. Eventually we hope to get a minivan which would probably have little movie screens, but my 4.5 year old tends to get carsick, so I'm not sure how well that would work anyway.
