Four fun games for family journeys
Travelling back from a half term holiday? Keep your brood entertained en route with these fun games
Make up different kinds of animals by using one or both of your hands. Can you make a slithering snake? What about a butterfly? A dog? A snail? Take turns to guess what animal each of you are making. You can also make up short stories of big adventures for your clever hand puppet creations.
Leaving On A Jet Plane? I Like Driving In My Car (It’s Not. Quite A Jag-u-ar)Think of as many songs as you can that are about cars, boats, planes, bicycles, or other means of transportation. Then, you can extend your songs to include other themes or words: “Love” and “baby” are good ones.
Flights of fancy
What are all the natural and man-made things you can think of that fly? That roll? That move on two legs? Or four legs? That slither on no legs. Things that bounce or buzz? If you’re travelling on a boat, then thinkof things that can swim. Travelling by car? Then think of wheels.
What’s the tiniest means of transportation you can think of? Maybe a Little Tikes car or a Gee wizz electric car. And what’s the biggest? The Airbus Giant jumbo? Name all the different methods of transporting humans you can think of, starting from the teensiest.
