Next month we are heading off on a long overdue family vacation and I am already collecting activity ideas to keep my girls busy on the plane rides. As I was researching, I noticed that there seemed to be a shortage of simple, screen free activities to keep older kids busy – think 8-13 years – and so I decided to create a collection of fun travel games for kids in this age range.
The collection includes 32 activity cards featuring fun travel games that are suitable for travel by air, train or road, and that can be played with nothing more than a paper and pen.
There are word games, math games, drawing challenges, games to play solo and with others. In fact, if each card kept your child busy for just 30 minutes, it would total 16 hours of fun!
The game cards can be printed at home, cut apart and easily stored in a travel soap container that will take up next to no room in the car or your carry on luggage.
