KleenSlate Whiteboards can promote cooperative kids and happy parents in the family car. Here are some tips for using whiteboards in the car:

First, keep at least one whiteboards for every seat belt. Also keep extra KleenSlate markers and a micro-fiber cloth for erasing. Write your children’s names in permanent marker on the handle of each whiteboard and label a couple “Guest.” Most mini-vans and SUVs have pockets on the back of front seats where whiteboards can be stored.

Here are 6 ways to use whiteboards in the car.

  1. Play games, including hangman, tic-tac-toe, twenty questions, or pictionary
  2. Use Whiteboards to practice math facts or spelling words while Mom is running errands.
  3. Have kids draw a floor plan of their bedrooms or the family home. Draw a map from home to school or from home to the current destination.
  4. On longer trips, enforce a 15-minute quiet time to give the driver a break and tell the kids to communicate in writing using their KleenSlate Whiteboards
  5. When stopping at fast food restaurants, have everyone write his/her order on the whiteboard before the stop. You don’t have to remember each order and the children can be taken to a play area to release pent up energy.
  6. When bickering starts, tell the kids the argument can continue only IF they WRITE back and forth to one another. [HINT: make the ground rule that there will be no name calling]
