Dry Erase Backseat Activity

Here's an easy idea for traveling in the car and entertaining kids. Give them some washable dry erase markers and a glove or mitten, and they can create and recreate using their window for a canvas.

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    All you need are a set of dry-erase markers and a glove or mitten, and you're ready to go. Washable dry-erase markers are a must for this project. We did get a few stray marks on the door below the window of the car, but they came right off.

  • Step 3

    I asked my son to draw whatever he wanted to, but if he needed inspiration, he could simply draw anything he saw from the window that looked interesting.

    Then back to drawing again! It was super easy and a lot of fun. And the marker washed out of the gloves with no problem.
