As parents, we all know how bored children can get on their way to the family caravan holiday so it’s really important that you keep your children entertained during the journey – to help protect the sanity of your whole family. In this article we discuss just a few things you and your family can do to keep stop boredom on the journey to your caravanning holiday;
- Play ‘I Spy’, it’s a really simple game where the first person says “I Spy something beginning with …” and then gives the first letter that everyone in the car can see. For example it may be something beginning with ‘c’ and the answer could be cars. Everyone takes turn to guess what it could be and the first one who gets it right is the next person to have a go!
- Find the Car. The driver calls out a colour and everyone must shout when they see that colour car. The first person to spot five cars of the selected colour wins that round and then chooses the next colour car to spot.
- Make a Word is a game for older children. You all have to spot words in the number plates on cars that go past you on the road. Numbers can be used as letters, for example 3 can be E and 0 can be O.
- You can play ‘Catch the Waves’ this is when you wave out the window on your side of the car and count how many people wave back. A time limit is put on the game and the winner is the person who gets the most waves back from drivers.
