1. Eye Spy
This old favourite is a great way to take in countryside changes and to quietly absorb your on road adventure. What do you spy with your little eye? Even little ones love to guess, so don’t tell us give us a hint!
2. I went to the store
Challenge your memory! Everyone bought one item from the store. Whether Molly bought marshmallows or Tom bought red apples, you must remember each item or you miss your turn!
3. First to 5 (Favourite Colours)
Do you love Red, Blue or Green the most? Spot five things the same colour to be the first winner!
4. Backgammon or Chess Whiz?
Slightly older kids can be placated with magnetic board games for car trips. Available at any toy stores, these games last years and pieces don’t slip around with every speed bump, and don’t make enough noise to disturb other travellers.
5. The Art Box
This is a great idea. Keep your pens, pencils and drawing books, plus fiddly bits and pieces inside an A4 folder with Ziploc bags. The most creative enthusiasts will always be able to easily access their favourite vices.
