Road Trip Magic

Summer is often the time for a family road trip. This is an unusual summer for us in that we have stayed close to home, but I'll share my children's favorite road trip activity.

Crayola Model Magic is an air-drying modeling material that is easy to use, and best of all, is easy to clean up. My children have used it on three road trips so far, and it has never stuck to anything that it shouldn't. Each of my kids sits in the van with a lap tray which provides the surface for sculpting.

Crayola Model Magic provides a creative, minimally messy activity that works for me! Visit Rocks in My Dryer to read more helpful tips.

Thanks for the tip! Sounds great. How do you clean it up after a trip? Is it just a matter of sweeping or vacuuming it up? It must hold together (and then dry) nicely.

Does the pack come with some ideas? My daughter was interested in using clay recently and needed a few hints to point her in the right direction.

Oh my goodness! We are about to go on a trip and this would be perfect to keep 5 of my 6 occupied! Woo Hoo! Thanks.

As far as clean-up goes, I think we just picked up the stray pieces by hand. They did not get ground into the seats or the carpet. Yes, it does hold together and dry nicely.

CMM comes in different packages, but I think most have cards with ideas of crafts to make.
