Are We There Yet?

1 Give kids a road map and a marker to track the journey.

2 Pack colouring books, crayons and markers in a lunch box, which doubles as an instant table.

3 Give kids pipe cleaners to bend and shape into various objects.

4 Tie a piece of string together to play Cat’s Cradle.

5 Pack extra snacks such as dried fruit or licorice to fuel up between pit stops.

6 Play a simple version of Simon Says: Have kids touch their head, face and shoulders.

7 Charades with sounds: Instead of acting things out, make the sound effect, like a dog barking or an airplane flying.

8 Play 20 Questions—kids and questions go hand in hand.

Need more ways to keep the kids entertained? See Hit the Road for more ideas.
