Nintendo DS’s, iPods and iPads are all great distractions for kids, but what about when you don’t want them staring at a screen (or when you can’t, like during take-offs and landings)? Here are our five fave non-electronic distractions.

 Mad Libs

Mad Libs have always been fun whether you make up the stories alone or in a group. And it’s also educational since you have to know your parts of speech.

Flip & Click Big Book of Games

With page after page of four different games, this really is a big book of games. Choose from Hangman, Concentration, Pathfinder and Bingo. There’s something in here for everyone.

Rory’s Story Cubes

Roll the cubes and make up a story. Simple, yet incredibly fun.
