Birthday cake, decorations, and gifts are only part of a successful birthday party -- planned activities are essential for keeping the children entertained. Making scrapbooks is a party project idea that works for children of all ages, and isn't strictly for girls.
Being prepared during a road trip or a long vacation is half the battle. A great way to keep kids entertained (and out of trouble) is to put together a travel kit including some fun activities. We added some craft supplies, a book, snacks, a journal, and more, but the best part is you can customize the kit to your child's interests.
