Car Trip Activities & Craft Ideas

Sharing is caring!

Today, we will look at a simple craft to help keep kids sane on that super long road trip!

This is an excellent craft for the car because it doesn’t require many supplies and serves a purpose! It’s a simple craft box. It can be used to hold souvenirs, photo’s from your trip, postcards, and anything else you pick up along the way (I have a rock collector).

Items You Need:

  • Box with a lid
  • Construction Paper
  • Crayons & Colored Pencils
  • Foam Stickies, Stencils, Stickers (If you choose a state-themed box it might be helpful to pick up some state stickers from your local craft store)
  • Glue Stick
  • Safety Scissors
  • Plastic grocery bag (this craft will produce trash, so go ahead and hook the plastic bag to the armrest).
  • Sandwich Bags and a shoe box to carry these supplies.
  • Travel Guides for the state(s) your visiting. 

Step 1: Have your child cut out all places they would like to visit and things they would like to do and see while on vacation. Please give them a sandwich bag to keep these in while they work.

Step 2: Use the glue stick to cover the entire box area (one section at a time) with glue.

Step 3: Place each picture on the box, gluing the back of each one as you place them.

Step 4: Create a nameplate using construction paper, crayons, and stickers.

Step 5: Fill the box with all of your travel treasures.

This is a super simple craft that can keep your child entertained for hours (depending on how small their pictures are). I like to reserve the bottom of the box for actual photos of our trip (we decoupage them).
