"Are we there yet?"
"Moooooom, tell her to stop pinching me!"
Sound familiar? These are the songs of children on road trips...but you can change their tune with some creative DIY travel games. Get the kids involved in the process of making these creative takes on traditional board games and they'll love playing them even more!
With Velcro and buttons, you can upcycle an old plastic DVD case into a fun travel checkers game
. King me!
Clever upcycling at its finest! Turn the lids from frozen concentrate into a concentration game
with your favorite stamps and scrapbook papers. Use a large cookie sheet or shallow tray with a lip to play this game in the car.
I love the idea of freeform Scrabble - learn how to make this magnetic travel game
and help your kids improve their vocabulary on long car trips.
This felt version of paper dolls
is a great way to use up felt scraps. Make several pocket carriers with different themes and the kids can make up creative tales to go with their story boards.
