How do I entertain two 11 month olds and a 2 1/2 year old on a long drive?

Next week the girls and I are going on a 15 hour drive one way and I am looking for ways to entertain them in the car! I stocked up on dvds but I don't know what else to bring!

my husband and my son (2 1/2 yr), daughter (3 months) and i recently took a 16 hour drive. we got my son a vcast portable game ( not too expensive) and we already have a portable dvd player. we also bought a couple of the little matchbox cars and wraped them. we gave him one every few hours and he enjoyed that and played with those for a long time.

buy some little toys, coloring books, books and don't give them to them until you are on the road. I bought a travel tray that you strap around them car seat from amazon (Star Kids Snack & Play Travel Tray $19.99) that they can eat and play on. Also preportion snacks into baggies or containers to make it easier to hand out. White erase boards or small cookie sheets and magnets are also good. Good luck and safe travels!
