Children are fascinated by colors. Since they are relatively new to this world, and are exceedingly curious and perceptive, they consider each new hue and shade to be exquisite and exceptional, unlike us, who have learned to take all the colors in the world for granted, and don't even look twice at any new shade as such, believing it to be just another part of the surrounding environment. Kids, however, witness and perceive everything, and are always eager to let their knowledge flow to others through various means, verbal and non-verbal. While the verbal means are also important, the non-verbal ones are much more fun-oriented. These include various kinds of coloring books and, talking about the new generation, free printable coloring pages from the internet.
Besides helping the children to develop their imaginations, parents can utilize stories from the coloring pages to teach their kids practical lessons. While the children are enjoying the process of coloring the images, they can be taught values that are important for them to grasp at a young age. Lessons from the real world can also be taught at the same time. When parents take the time to tell their children stories as they color, the child's imagination is further strengthened and enhanced.

Before the road trip take the kids to the stores so they can pick out their road trip coloring books and other activities. This is an even better choice because the kids will settle beforehand which type of activity is most interesting and the best for them. Tell them that you'll hold onto the items until the road trip and they'll spend the time until the trip in anticipation of playing with their new toys. They'll be that much more likely to stay involved with their coloring books and crayons on the trip rather than on each other, so you'll be that much more relaxed while on the drive.
