With the holiday season at hand, ‘tis the season for road trips. It is also the season for traffic jams, interstates turned into parking lots and looky loos slowing down traffic to a crawl so they can stare out their window at cops who’ve pulled over speeders. The last thing you want to hear on your long drive is a repeated chorus of “Are we there yet?” from the backseat. One great way to keep your kids occupied as you drive to your destination is your iPhone’s apps for kids. Here’s a list of some of our favorites.
