Step 9: Put on a play/skit!

Every time we travel, we stop at rest areas.  One of the best part of a rest area is to be able to run around and stretch your legs. 

Let the kids plan and put on a play at the rest stop.  Not only will it burn off energy, but it will be constructive play in a limited amount of time.

Between rest stops have them plan out a play and put it on for the adults, at the next rest stop.  They can write lines, they can plan costumes, etc.

Next, after everyone has gone to the bathroom, find a nice picnic table and watch the play!

I learned to do the third suggestion when I was young. Slightly different: someone would draw a squiggly and some shapes, and the second person would make a complete picture from the squiggle. <br>8 years later, I still do that activity when I'm with a friend. Both of us enjoy scrathcing our brains to try and create something from the more complex from random squiggles. So i definitely support your variation in your third suggestion. :)
I still play a lot of these games too. Bored waiting for food at a restaurant? I simply turn over my place mat and start doodling. I also have a tendency to snitch the crayons at the hostess station in the front of some restaurants! lol
