Since it's Spring Break, I thought we should revisit this post as many of you are stuck in long car rides this week. As a kid, I remember driving all over the place for family vacations and we did not have iPads, iPods or DVD players. However, the thought of taking my two boys across the country without electronics makes my stomach turn.

I asked our readers on facebook what ideas they had for frugal fun car activities and I got 77 responses everything from getting a Nintendo DS to stocking up on Benadryl! (LOL!) Seriously though, here's a few of the tips our readers posted:

Pictionary Man Jr

Nintendo DS

Leapster

Tag Reading System

Scrapbook (Let your kids gather suveniers for their scrapbook)

Make a Happy Bag (New toys from the Dollar Store)

Portable CD Player

New iPad Games (or iPhone)

New Books from the Library

Bingo Games

Crayola Color Wonder (LOVE this stuff!)

Books on CD from the Library

Check out all 77 tips and tricks from parents who have been there and done that on our Facebook page!
