1. Scavenger Hunt Out The Window

If you haven't left your house yet, there are plenty of printable car scavenger hunts you can find online. But if you're already on the road with a backseat full of "are-we-there-yet" energy, here is a great list to have your kids try to spot as you drive:

Tall building Cow Police Car
Body of water  Stop sign Semi-Truck
Bike Store Flowers
Bridge Dog American flag


2. The Letter Game

Look out your window for words that appear on signs or license plates, that start with each letter of the alphabet. The object of the game is to point out all the letters of the alphabet in order, from A to Z. The first person to spot the entire alphabet wins!

  8. Would you rather wear giant, floppy clown shoes for the rest of your life or a bright red clown nose that people keep honking?
