License Plate Game
Print out a map of US, give each child a map and a marker and as they see different license plates while driving, mark them off
on the map. This may take a long time to complete which will keep them busy.
Name a state or country or place on a map, the next player must think of a place that starts with a letter the last word ended with.
For example: Canada....next player says Alaska....next says Arkansas, next says San Francisco, etc.
What Am I?
Write things different things on post it notes. Each child takes a turn sticking the note to their forehead. The note may say DUCK.
The kid with the note stuck on them asks questions until he guesses what he is. For example: He may say: "Am I an animal?", "Do I
live in the forest?", "What sound do I make?", etc.
What If I?
Think of questions to ask your kids that are fun and though provoking. For example: "If you could only eat one food what would it
be?", "If you could only watch one TV show, what would it be?", "What would you bring to a deserted Island?", etc.
Take empty water bottles and fill with birdseed or rice and add 5 to 10 things to find. They should be different colors. For example
:a coin, an erasure, a piece of candy, a lego, anything really. Kids have to turn and twist bottles to get the items to appear.
1 Truth, 1 Lie
A child thinks of 2 statements about themselves....one is true, the other is false. Other children have to guess which one is true.
For example: "My favorite subject is Math", "My Favorite food is broccoli", etc.
