Mummy Mazes by Elizabeth Carpenter If you’re anything like me, you’re starting to contemplate the holidays and those long road trips to grandma’s house. All that “over the hills” and “through the woods” stuff eats up a lot of miles, and prompts many a whined “Are we there yet?” Fortunately, we’ve got this cool new book – Elizabeth Carpenter’s “Mummy Mazes: A Monumental Book.” It holds 28 poster-sized Ancient Egyptian mazes, that are pretty much guaranteed to keep the backseat crowd quiet and happy for at least a little while. And one of you lucky people is going to get it! Click “comments” and tell us, what’s your best Thanksgiving travel tip? We’ll pick a winner next week.

Meanwhile, congrats are due to Ellie, who won the last giveaway – and that copy of “Thumb Love.”

    Thank you! I’m delighted to have won “Thumb Love”. I can’t wait to read it to my little one. As for my best Thanksgiving travel tip, my number one tip is DON’T FLY! But it sounds like you are looking more for car travel tips, and for that I would recommend that you pack up the car the day or night before you leave, so as to have one less stress when you’re pulling out. For long car trips, I like to have lots of easy-to-reach snacks, water, and juice on hand, and for older kids, a map, so that they can follow along! And to get everyone in the car and ready to go on time, I like to tell everyone that we’re leaving a half-hour to an hour before we actually have to leave (keeping this little deception a secret). Thus, if you’re pulling out a half hour “late”, no biggie! These mummy mazes sound fantastic!

    I have always made each of our children their very own
    play/snack bag! That way, each child’s personality plays into their personal bag of games, snacks, drinks,
    etc. Also, we like to leave late in the evening, when traveling. That way, they sleep for most of the time!
    Many thanks, Cindi

    We always have Thanksgiving at my house.

    However, during Christmas we drive 2 1/2 hours over two mountain passes to get to my brothers house. I always pack a pillow and blanket. I also have some of their favorite toys as well as some of their favorite books to keep them entertained.

    I have Thanksgiving at my house, so we don’t need to travel. But I would suggest packing lots of food and drink and try to travel at off-peak hours.

    What an awesome book! :)

    My Thanksgiving travel tip? Stay home & enjoy the peace. I’ve done the traveling with babies thing and it just ain’t that fun.
