We often find that longer car journeys can become a little bit fractious, so we have invented games to keep the kids entertained. We thought we would share one of them with you on the blog. The iSpy game is a must for car journeys, so we’ve got a printable version for you today!
Anything that makes travel a little bit easier when you are a parent works well, right?
Free kids iSpy game for the car
The idea of the game is:
- Print out all the below sheets for every player.
- There are three sheets, with items on the first sheet representing one point, the second two and the final one three points.
- Look out for all the items on your journey and tick them off as you go along. Make sure you don’t give away your “iSpys” if you are playing with others. If you are playing on your own, tell anyone you like!
- Once you have reached your destination, add up all your “iSpys” and see who has won. If you are flying solo, then see if you beat your record 😀
It really is as simply as all that. We have blank sheets for you to create your own ideas as well. Don’t forget to give them a points score before you set out too.
