Impromptu Car Game

Sometimes B gets really antsy in the car which makes the ride not so fun for anyone and sometimes I’m racing home, trying to keep him awake, so he doesn’t fall asleep in the car (which erases any chance of a nap). Then, B made up this really fun impromptu car game which I’m assuming is inspired by Dora or Diego.


impromptu car gameThis is how we play:

One of us says “If you see a __________, yell _______”. (If you see a flag, yell flag.)

I guess it’s a younger version of I-Spy. It has turned out to be a great distraction for B and keeps him alert. It also is a great game to enhance vocabulary. He’s learned the difference between the American and Texas flags and has learned to read various store signs. I guess it’s time for me to learn the different types of trucks instead of saying “If you see a big truck, yell big truck”. =)
