6 classic car games to keep your kids happy

02 June 2014, 13:12

Abuja - It’s time for your long awaited family road trip. The car is packed, your playlist is ready and the kids are strapped safely in the backseat.

But when the first “Are we there yet?” comes from behind you, your patience is tested. Make your road trip fun and bearable for the whole family with these fun games to play in the car.

The Animal Name Game
The game starts with one person naming an animal.  Then the next person has to name another animal starting with the last letter of the previous animal. There are no winners in the game, but it encourages kids to think creatively. You can play the game with older children by naming TV shows, cities or countries.

I spy with my little eye
One person thinks of something in the car stating only the letter the word begins with. The other players then ask yes and no questions, like “Can I eat it?” or “Is it soft?” The first person to get the answer right is the winner.

The Alphabet Game
One person keeps an eye on the left-hand side of the road and someone else the right. Each player looks for letters of the alphabet that appear on signs, buildings or license plates on their side. The object of the game is to point out all the letters of the alphabet from A-Z and the first one to spot the entire alphabet is the winner.

The Memory Game
The first player starts by saying “A is for…” and fills the gap with a word starting with A. The next person has to repeat what the first player said and then also add a word starting with the next letter in the alphabet. As they move down the alphabet, the list of words to remember gets longer. By the time you reach the letter Z, that player will have to recite the whole alphabet and all the corresponding words.

Secret Place Race
One person looks at a map and chooses a town, city or river and announces it to the other players. A second player then gets one minute to look at the map and point out where the secret place is.

Humming Game
One person hums the tune to a TV show and the other players have to guess from which show it is. The first person to correctly name the show gets to hum next.
