BEST TRAVEL GAMES TO DO HOME WITH KIDS!
A SNACK WITH TAPSY THE MOLE
Many of the best initiatives are happening online, including mine! I have decided to start a ‘snack with kids’ every Wednesday and Friday on my official Facebook and Instagram pages. What is goin on then? I will post games, riddles, curiosities and drawing made by you, so we can play together and dreaming of our next family journey, I can’t literally wait for it, and you? Which city would you like to visit? Do you want to know interesting facts about the most beautiful destinations in Europe? Do you want to send me a draw of some journey you would like to do with your family? Let’s get in touch then! I will wait for your comments and suggestions!
Great for older kids who have the patience for longer trips, and perfect for everyone at home! UNO is fun for two players, but can easily expand to accommodate up to 10 players, so it’s a great choice for kids on long trips and also when they are stuck home with the rest of the family. It works for every generation!
During a journey it’s easy to take a break for a snack with travel Battleship. And it is even more easy at home. “Each player has their own play pieces which aren’t shared, and the lid snaps shut, preventing opponents from seeing the other board. As long as the youngest player is old enough to learn to tell the ships apart by sight, they won’t have any trouble!”
TRAVEL GAMES: SCRABBLE
You all know it! Anyone who’s ever bumped the table on family game night can see the appeal of click and lock tiles on the Scrabble board, even for home use. You can still lose pieces that haven’t been played yet, so don’t forget to pick up a tray table with raised edges; it’s never fun to start off vacation by digging game pieces out from under the seat in front of yours.
TRAVEL SCAVENGER HUNT GAMES
Old but gold! Scavenger Hunt is a perfect road trip game for kids, they will love keeping an eye out for items on these cards ranging from stop signs to license plates with certain letters. Scavenger hunt is my preferite thing to do when I travel with kids, so it could be a good idea to practice it at home and becoming super smart and ready for the next family trip!
And you, what is your favorite travel game?
