So you have a full car of kids for team travel, and are wondering how to keep them occupied. Well I have a few games that you can play that can not only kill time, but are also really fun when enduring team travel!
Ok, so there are a number of ways to play this game— for one you can call out letters in alphabetical order; the first one to Z wins. Another way to play is have someone look for doubles or triples of letters and/or numbers in the plates. The one who has the most at the end of the game wins. Or my personal favorite, try and “collect” out-of-state plates. This is where you look at all the plates and try to find one from every state.
Where’s the Alphabet?
This game can be played in teams or solo, which makes it perfect for team travel. But the way to play this is simply by using anything that you see outside the windows of the car. The key here is to focus on hat is on your side of the car, you can look at road signs, store names, billboards etc. The object of the game is to start at the beginning of the alphabet and make it to Z before your opponents.
This one is not just for kids; the whole team and family can have fun playing this. I personally like this one, because you can mess with people by picking something that you know they will never guess. But the basic ay to play I spy is simply by picking something you see and then having the other passengers try to figure out what it is. You can give clues that include color, letter that the objects name starts with, and so on. If you’re really good at this game you can have people stumped for hours!
For this game the first thing you need to do is think of something, I mean it can really be anything. Then you have the other people in the car ask up to 20 questions to answer it. But what you need to remember is that they can only ask question that can be answered with a “yes” or “no.” once the object has been revealed then a new game can begin.
Try these games out when you’re on a team travel trip, and watch the time fly by!
