Traveling Games For Children

  • 01

    I Spy

    The game of "I spy" does not take any space while traveling. Children like this game because it keeps changing. That is especially important for little ones whose attention span is kept intact with variety.
    The rules can be modified, but the basic ones are for one child to think of something in close proximity to them. This has to be kept secret from the others playing the game. The remaining children then try to guess the item that child selected. The answer has to be "yes" or "no". An example is the mother's hair while she is sitting in the front seat of the vehicle. One of the children say is it blue? The secret is not blue since the mother's hair is brown. That child says "no". The next child guesses and it keeps going until someone guesses that is is brown and the mother's hair. The winner then decides on their item saying "I spy with my little eye".

    Counting Car Makers

    Anyone can make up the rules for this game of counting car makers. Each child chooses a make of vehicle they want to count. The counting can be done for so many miles or until a designated stop is made. Modifying of this game can include counting campers or trucks. If Ford, Chevrolet or Toyota cars are chosen, the rules can be a specific color of those car makers. If the highway is kind of desolate, the rules can be cars with more than one person in them. Anyone can play the game. If very young children play, an adult might have to keep track of the counting for that youngster.

    Detecting License Plates

    Especially on a long trip, detecting licence plates can be a fun and entertaining game to play. The highway and boring roads make this a great game for children to be entertained for a long time. Someone picks the license plate from a state and begins counting those. Anyone can choose another one until everyone playing has selected their state license plate to search for as the journey continues. If it is too difficult to see the state name, the color of the license plate can be the ones that person counts. Most states have symbols on them and the license plate symbol can be counted instead of the state name or the color.

    Guess Miles

    Anyone can play this guessing game. It is played without pen, paper, computer or cell phone apps. Have each child guess how many miles it will be until the driver stops for gas. The one closest to the actual miles is the winner. The winner then decides to guess the next destination. This could be the next time the car stops for food or a pit stop for someone to go to the bathroom. This guessing game can be played with anyone wishing to participate. This keeps the children looking outside and keeps them interested in the travel experience as they have fun.

    Count Overpasses

    If you travel the interstate, this game will be more fun. Interstates can be boring and counting the overpasses can keep even the six and seven year old children entertained for a long time. Holding up the fingers can keep this game a silent one too if the driver needs some quiet time. If the overpasses are not visible on the road, count them on the side streets. Such overpasses can be for pedaling a bicycle or walking surfaces across the highways. Rail road crossings can be counted too. Give the children ideas for other overpasses they can count to keep the game interesting and fun.
