Now don’t get me wrong I-Spy is a classic but here’s a few more games to help those sometimes tedious hours in the car fly by.
Road Trip Bingo
With a flat surface to work on, each player gets a bingo card. You will need 16 coins or tokens for each player. When a player spots an item on their card they cover the corresponding square with a coin or token. The first person to spot all items in a straight line wins.
Take turns to think of a person, place or thing. The other players try to guess who or what it is by asking questions that can only be answered by yes or no.
Number Plate Game
Take turns to make up a funny or clever phrase using the letters from the passing number plates. For example 123 SRM – Sausages Read Minds.
The Alphabet Memory Game
Take turns going through the alphabet to list all the things you might take on your holiday. The first person starts with A and so on. Each player has to remember what was said before them and continue with the next letter in the alphabet. For example, “To go on our holiday we packed an Apple” “To go on our holiday we packed an Apple and a Beach towel”…
Each person chooses a car colour and gets one point for every car of their chosen colour spotted on the road. The first person to reach 25 points wins!
Going in circles, each player takes a turn in telling part of a story with the next player picking up where the previous player left off. See who can be the most creative.
Name that Tune
Take turns to hum or whistle a tune for the other players to guess. Whoever guesses correctly goes next.
Hey Sheep Hey Cow
If you are travelling through the country take turns yelling “Hey Sheep” or “Hey Cow” to a paddock of sheep or cows. Count how many heads pop up, whoever scores the most points wins!
Come up with a list of animals and allocate each animal a number of points. Allocate higher points to the animals you are less likely to see. Whoever spots the animal first gets the points. The first person to reach 100 points wins!
|Flock of Sheep||10||Rabbit||15|
|Herd of Catttle||10||Black Cat||20|
Quiet as a Mouse
For when you’re fed up with the noise and need a little peace and quiet, see who can be silent for the longest. If you come up with a prize for the winner, they might just for for it.
