How to beat boredom when travelling

Travelling whether in a car on a train or on a plane can be a little boring especially for younger children who may not be used to spending long periods of time having to stay in their seats. You may find that what was supposed to be a quickish journey turns in to an extremely long one due to delays that are out of your control.

Travel games are a great way to keep children entertained whilst often also entertaining the adults in the car too. There are many travel games that can be played to pass the time such as Eye Spy. This game has been around for years and the beauty of it is you don’t need anything to play it.

if you have younger children that cannot spell yet you could play it with colours instead of the letter it begins with.

Also games like “who am I” are great, where you think of an animal or a character (if you want to make it a little harder) and the other members of the family have to ask questions to find out who or what you might be. The person who guesses correctly wins a point. Often when playing travel games children will be so wrapped up in the game they will forget about the journey and you won’t hear the dreaded words “are we there yet?”
