It’s hard to believe that Easter is almost upon us already! If you are set to be one of the 16 million Brits who take to the road to get away for the holiday weekend, it can be a stressful time, particularly if you have a full car. Travelling with kids means extra safety, extra packing and extra fun. Take the monotony out of a long Easter drive by taking part in some of the great car games we’ve listed:
It’s an oldie but a goodie – I Spy is the classic go-to game for all the family to take part in. Take it in turns to pick out an object or item in view and let the rest of the car guess what it is. Either go around the car letting each family member have a go at picking an item, or let the correct guesser choose the next item. Points for correct answers, with optional points going to anyone picking a subject that leads the family to give up!
This is a great game for any trip, but which can work especially well if you are going to be on a motorway for any length of time. Each person in the car picks a different colour when you start your journey. From there, they have to keep count of all the cars they see that match their colour. As an optional Easter extra, you could consider giving a Crème Egg or something similar to the person who finds the most cars on their journey.
Starting at the top with the letter A, the first player shouts out when they see something beginning with A (for example an apple tree or an ASDA lorry), once they find their item, the game moves to the next player who has to find something beginning with the next letter of the alphabet and so on.
This is another familiar game, which now comes in its own smartphone version which is great if you can’t think of a famous person off the top of your head. Obviously the driver can’t play the smartphone way but they can still think of a celebrity or famous figure and give the rest of the car the answers to 20 yes or no questions to let them guess who you’re thinking of!
Of course when it comes to travelling safety matters more than amusements, so always remember to pack your huggybelt first, before any car games! Plus, as the huggybelt is so quick and easy to fit, you can also remove it from your car and take it with you if you’re going on a further journey, or anticipate travelling in a different vehicle when you are away. By offering extra protection for kids aged 3-12 in the event of a crash, you can rest easy on the long drive ahead thanks to huggybelt. Remember, your kids safety isn’t expensive – it’s priceless.
