How Do You Have Fun With Your Kids in the Car?

Mica and I read off street, road, avenue and circle signs, while in the car. I figure it's a good way for the boys and I to learn our area.

I've never been too good with directions. That's probably why I talk about directions to Mica and Isaak all the time. I find myself saying, "We're going west." a lot. When I was little, I thought every downtown was south. South on the map always points down; which is the reason why I thought it was "downtown." Hey my brain in much on the right side and a little on the left.

My Kind of Map! Do you see the McDonalds sign? What about the street going down the painting? The credit goes to painter Mary Todd Beam. Found in the book Celebrate You Creative Self. An excellent book for creativity and painting techniques.
When I created Mica's room, I put my own street, road, avenue and circle signs. All the signs are family names. He has a street room.

 What do you do in the car to pass time away?

I never run out of ideas for car activities. That's so my thing. I can make a game out of anything!

What a great room for a little boy!!

I am going to have to do the street sign thing. I really don't know a lot of the street names around me.

As always, very creative. He is a very lucky little boy to have a room like that!
My youngest is only two so we sing, tell stories, play.. To increase her vocabulary even more, we point out things along the way, sometimes even stopping. To smell the roses in a way :)

I always played the alphabet game with my parents in the car. I love the room decor you did!

Cute street room. I don't have to think of anything clever while in the car. Ash keeps me busy with her non-stop questions and commentary. Britt can never get a word in edgewise.

This is so cute. You thought downtown is south:)

I always look and observe places on both sides of the road. I remember them and that's the reason that if I have been to a place, I remember it forever. Even if that place has changed a lot. I never ever forget...
