Are we there yet? Keep the kids entertained and distracted while playing this wonderful homemade activity! All you need is a tissue box to decorate. Then, ask your child to name some of the things he thinks he will see on the trip. Have him write these down on slips of paper and put them in the tissue box. On the day of the trip, each child pulls out a strip of paper and must look for that item. When they spot it, they get a point. The winner is the child with the most points at the end of the game.
Depending on your child's age, this game can be great for reading practice, color recognition and creativity. An active brain is the best way to counteract a dull car ride!
