If I had to pick one item to keep my kids occupied on a trip, whether it's backpacking, cabin camping, or car camping, it would be the trusty hammock. We have two girls about 6 years apart, and they love reading in the hammock as well as horsing around. Swimsuits, sunscreen, snacks and all that help, and its good to give them tasks they can help with like gathering fire wood, but nothing works quite as well as the hammock.
