Hungry, irritable kids can make a trip seem 12 times as long. Make them 12 times more fun instead. Clean out an old egg carton and fill each compartment with a different treat. You can put M&Ms in one, Cheerios in another, and so on. Put rubber bands over each end so the goodies don't spill, and pack the fun-filled egg carton in the car. When the kids start whining for food, let them dip into one of the compartments. Before the trip, the kids can have fun decorating the carton, too.
