My kids need activities to do in the car when we take long road trips and vacations in the car. If we have nothing ffor them to do, it’s me yellling, them crying and lots of stressful driving. Sound familar?
To play, you just give each kid a sheet and a pen (or erasable marker if you laminate the page). Each time you see a license plate from another state, you cross off what you find during your trip.
The one who finds the most by the time you reach your destination, wins. Sometimes we just tally them all together and see how many of what car we see each way. Everyone gets involved. One rule though. You can’t count the state you are from, more that 5 times…it would get really boring!
Don’t tell your kids, but this can help them learn all 5o states too. (least they learn something while on summer vacation or any time they are not in school)
