There are a lot of times when we find ourselves in the car with kids who don't want to be. To help combat the "are we there yet?" and "when are we going to get there?" questions we have developed a little game. I quickly found out that I Spy is a bit harder than I remember it being when I was a kid. Mostly because the kids don't get the concept of finding things IN the car to describe, not things we have just passed.
This little game started as Bible Trivia, which my daughter rocked by the way. It has morphed into Jungle Trivia and other such trivia games. Last night, with a cranky Honey and an over stimulated B-Man (see here) we made our way over to my in-laws for Sunday Dinner. Since we have been reading Harry Potter (YES!!! FINALLY!!! I can FINALLY share my FAVOURITE BOOKS with my kids!! WOOHOO!!! Sorry, I got a little carried away there) we had a game of Harry Potter Trivia.
Here's how we played Harry Potter Trivia. As you can probably guess, it's easily interchangeable.
At this point it can go one of two ways. The person who guessed it gets a turn to pick a character and ask questions OR you can go in a circle around the car so that everyone has a chance.
I loved B-Man's clues last night. We are currently reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Here were his clues:
Hahahahaha! Can you guess who he's talking about?
P.S. It's better than the "Honey guess what's in pants" question he asked on the way home. FYI, he had rolled his car in his pant leg, THANK GOD! That could have gone REALLY wrong.
You know the saying, the grass is always greener on the other side? This is my attempt to find greener grass right where I am in my life.
BTW - I'm the one on the right, just in case you didn't already know that.
