1.  Balloons

2.  Stickers - especially if you allow him to stick them all over you

3.  Count anything and everything

4.  Remember all the traditional tales from when you were at school and re-tell them orally (there speaks a teacher!)

5.  Put actions to as many nursery rhymes as you can.

6.  Model numbers out of drinking straws (you get plaudits from other people's children for this too!) - even more impressive if you can do it with napkins too!

7.  Writing numbers in the sand.

*New Idea*
8.  Check out Hairy Maclary books on You Tube!  All of the HM books are there with pictures of the pages and someone reading the story.  Excellent!

9.  Short of bath toys in a motel room - get the free plastic shower cap and make a few small holes in it; fill it with water and hold it at the opening - hours of fun!

More things to amuse a 3 year old!
1. Write letters in the sand

2. Play 'Silly soup' game where you make soup with things begining with letter sounds!

Have to say your last epic journey made me laugh it would be our sort of journey!

Yes - Steven's less keen on letters and sounds but has started to point out some letters. He'll be literate by the time we get to New Zealand!!
