Entertaining the Kiddies at Summer’s Events

// July 14th, 2012 // Activities

Summer vacation is here, and so are weddings, graduations, family reunions and picnics. Ever wondered, “How am I going to occupy the kids on the drive or what will we do to keep all the little cousins entertained at the family reunion or what games can we play at the family or neighborhood picnic?” We have some ideas for you!

Travel games:
1. Alphabet Game. Start with the letter “a” and see who can find that letter first on the billboards and street signs that you pass. Go all the way through the alphabet.
2. License Plate Game. Have children watch the license plates and see who can see the most plates from different states. Talk about where that state is located and why that car may have come so far. For really far away states, have each child make up a story why the car came so far.
3. Map It! Print off a map of your trip, give kids a highlighter and have them keep track of where they are. Discuss different points of interest along the way. If you be going past landmarks, print of pictures of the landmarks and let kid watch for them and discuss why these particular landmarks are important.
4. Activity Book with crayons
5. Paper and Crayons for Drawing
