During the drive the girls (especially Tess) entertained themselves with some awesome little oil pastels and two nice sketchbooks courtesy of Grandma Mollie. At first I thought the sketchbooks were a little large but the nice thing about them was that they had a hard cover and were thick, making them a nice thick surface to draw on in the car. The girls could put these on their lap and draw and draw.
The above drawings were made by Tess, and she filled half the book with these. The oil pastels make such a bold, vivid mark. They also used stickers in them. We also had little dry erase activity books that the girls really liked.
Overall it was a great time. We listened to a Disney Princess CD (I know, I know!) that was actually tolerable and the Winnie the Pooh CD which was really pretty great. We also listened to Mary Poppins and most of the Annie soundtrack. Also we listened to the the soundtrack to Where the Wild Things Are and it was great! I never knew Karen O was attached to it (from the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs) but I've been missing out.
