You know about those long, not-so-exciting car rides when Mom and Dad are always telling you to be quiet or to stop fussing with your brothers and sisters. I have just the tricks to help keep you out of trouble and to make the time fly by. There are games that require no supplies other than your eyes and imagination that will do the trick.
We all know how to play “I-spy”-- just take it to the car. Scope out the landscape as you ride and see what you can find to stump those playing with you. You have to be quick, though, because the car keeps moving. You can also play the “Alphabet Game”. All you have to do is be the first in the car to find the letter “A” on a road sign, store front or anywhere you see letters. After finding the “A”, you just move on down the alphabet. You will be surprised at some of the letters that are very hard to find on the road. You can even keep points to see who finds the most letters.
I hope these games make the “car craziness” a little less crazy for you this Summer.
