Road-tripping with the kids this summer and sick of the “are we there yet?” question? So was I, until we found this cute game in Highlights magazine: a road trip scavenger hunt.
Ahead of time, select items that your child will need to find from the back seat of the car. You can make a written list for readers, but I printed out pictures for Travis and glued them to sheets of a notebook. If I’d had more time, I would have found pictures of uniform size, and perhaps colored them in, but we were also busy packing!
Try to vary the difficulty of these; some I knew he could spot right away, like an American flag. Others (cows! hawks!) would take some doing.
The game is fantastic because you can mix it up with new finds for each road trip, no matter how long or short.
Are we there yet? Who cares when you’re having fun!
