We’ve all heard it – the dreaded “are we there yet?” Even though I don’t have children yet, I’ve been (un)fortunate enough to spend an ample amount of time inside of vehicles with children (and adults) who have road patience on par with someone in line for the toilet at a bar.
With oil prices dropping to recent lows and the heavy summer travel season just beginning to gear up, there’s a fair chance you’re going to find yourself stuck in the car with an individual or two who simply has had enough of being in the car.
Luckily for all of us, British car hire service carhiremarket.com recently released an original list of “Top Ten In-Car Games For Kids” in order to help the time in the car pass a little more quickly. It is a brilliantly compiled list, which even highlights the potential pros and cons of each game (e.g. ducking under every bridge could cause back pain in some adults). The list includes classics such as counting the number of blue or red cars to obscure ones such as scoring a running tally of the number of legs featured on the mascots of local pubs.
While none of these make for a quiet or even a relaxed car ride, they hopefully will at least burn enough time to make getting to Ant Edna’s and back a tolerable experience.
