Road Trip Snack Boxes for Kids - I made these for this summer's trip and it was a huge hit. I found the boxes in the craft section at Wal-Mart and included a variety of salty and sweet treats. Then on each leg of our trip (divided up into 1-2 hour increments), they could choose one or two things to eat. Very convenient on us as parents and the kids love it, too. -- I am so doing this this summer!
I love doing this with my students...except the one year that my kids were so upset that they "let me down" (even though they hadn't and i explained it was a lesson) and some began to cry. I miss my ALA kiddos
