Are we there yet?! It can be quite a struggle to keep kids of any age entertained during long car journeys, that’s why we’ve compiled some activities and games to help make travelling fun and keep the whinges away!
Play the ‘Name Five Game’. One person chooses a theme such as ‘animals’ and the other person needs to name five things in that category.
Play A-Z I spy. Try to find something you can see out of the window for each letter of the alphabet. This simple and fun game may also help kids who suffer from travel sickness.
Play bingo. Make a list or a picture list of things kids may see on the journey. As they spot each item on the list, they can cross it off!
Get the kids to find all the numbers up to 10 on number plates and for older children get them to find all the letters of the alphabet.
Car colour spotting: choose a colour each, then count how many cars of that colour you see!
Play the ‘What do you like best’ game. Ask one person ‘what do you like best, chocolate or strawberry ice cream?’ Once they have answered they ask you a different question back.
Make up a story. One person needs to start the story with a single sentence and then the next person continues the story with their own sentence, etc etc.
Have a safe journey, and we hope these ideas keep the little ones amused. Have you got any tips? Let us know on our Facebook Page 🙂
