A Few Ideas To Make Traveling With Kids Fun
Here are a few fun ideas to help making traveling with kids fun.
The License Plate Game – We’ve all played this right? I remember playing when I was a kid with my siblings, it was fun and without a doubt helped the time fly by. Since drivers from all over the country are on the road it’s fun to spot different license plates while driving down the road.
The Photo Documentary – This is one of the fun car games I recently started doing with my kids and it’s loads of fun. Since everyone has electronic devices tell the kids to take pictures of whatever they want along the way and document
20 Questions – Another easy game is 20 questions and it’s great for all ages. One person thinks of a person, place or thing and everyone else takes turns asking questions that are answered with yes or no. Play until someone guesses correctly.
I Spy – Another game many of are familiar with is I Spy! This is super easy and fun for all ages. One person spies something says, “I spy with my little eye”, ending with a clue about whatever they spy.
The Telephone Game – I remember playing this game in school when I was young and it’s a great way to pass the time while you are on the road. One person will whisper into someone’s ear a story. That person will then whisper the same story into the next person ear as close to word for word as possible, to another person and so on it goes. The last person will then say the story out loud for everyone to hear. The story can end up pretty funny when it’s all said and done.
Turn off the radio and chat – Seriously, turn off all the electronics and the radio and just have a conversation. It’s a great way to bond with your kids, hear what’s going on in their lives and just spend some time getting to know them. Plus, it helps keep them from asking “are we there yet?” 926 along the way.
Stop for a little reward – My kids do such an awesome job in the car I almost always stop and get them a little something, just to say thank you and let them know they are doing an awesome job. We recently went to see my mom and dad so we stopped at our favorite Circle K store and the kids spotted the NEW Sweetos™ Froster signage right away.
