Travelling in the car with three under 6 can be a challenge at times, but we are really grateful that our children are good travellers.
Might have something to do with having no choice, we've always travelled, both Rod and my parents live 3 / 4 hours drive away, and other family even further. So this is something we just do.
Sure our kids have all the mod cons, including portable DVD players and Leapfrog leapsters (game systems). However some of the games they love to play the best include their use of thought.
Our favourite family car game is "What am I" We take it in turns of asking the question and giving the hints, and the rest of the time you just have to try and guess.
What am I?
- I live in the sea
- I have scales
- I have a tail
- I am beautiful
- I have hair
Yes, you guessed it I am a mermaid!
These games can go on and on and on and on, I tell ya! Seriously. But we do love it. It's something everyone can participate in, often ends with giggles, sometimes a few junior arguments, but all said and done this is a great way to enjoy each others company when in the car.
