This is specifically for one of my kids who gets mildly motion sick. Basically he does mostly ok but really can't do like an activity book or mad libs etc, that will trigger nausea. Any ideas for what he can do for entertainment on a long car ride? Age 13.

Scavenger hunts! We do these even with adults...Google for some funny lists
You can either have one list and it's a cooperative game, or print multiple and whoever spots it first gets to claim it


Geography
ABC game

Take Dramamine. Really helps my kids with mild or worse motion sickness.

Alphabet game (find letters of the ABCs in order, you can make rules like including or excluding license plates, words on trucks or stores, etc. to make it harder)

Listen to audiobooks (if you have 24six they have a lot)

Thanks. He does take drama mine and it generally works, but even with that he can't do anything out of a book. Sometimes he can do the ABC game sometimes not. Audio books sound like a great idea! And he likes geography, we play it on shabbos sometimes, so I guess we can try it in the car too.
