    Normally they are happy to play on Nintendo DS, but they have to have earphones on and are restricted to how long they can use them at a time. When they are not on we do a game based on numberplates, but one son loves trucks and can name most of them (and model!!) - the other likes buses/coaches and again can name them!!!!
    The youngest daughter just likes to listen to music

  53. much easier now my children are late teens but when they were little endless games of i spy or spotting certain makes of cars that were not common place on the road at the time (for example vokeswagon beetles) now on long journeys they either watch a dvd (with headphones) as we have the dvd car mounts or listen to their music or read a book, travelling with teens is great no silly squabbling or constant " are we there yet mum" or "how long now mum" the normal that kids do i do not miss that, journeys are peaceful and bliss now.
