  • Took a 4 day drive with my 10 year old grandson-to my oldest sons wedding. I used thrift store finds to make busy bags for my grandson. He loved it. Books to read. activity books, I found a pile of Highlights-3 for 50c, he went nuts. Even pointing out how old each book was, he still loved all those books. Found a Star Wars-seek and find like Waldo-99c. I also found a book about the 50 states-So I copied the pages for the states we went thru-so he could do the puzzles. He read to us, had tic-tac-toe games with who ever was in the back seat with him, read us jokes and riddles.
    His school has a out side book box, I told him when he got done-to put the books in there.

  • It is so wonderful that your family reads real actual books. Our public library often has used book sales and we have walked out with a huge bag full on Sunday (the last day) for $10. when traveling, I also like to pop in to the local public library, where they often have magazines or books for sale.
