Car games with the kids
« on: July 02, 2018, 09:42:54 AM »
So our kids are 4 and 7 and they are learning about all the cars - we had to explain to them to make it a bit easier that cars have a name and surname (ie make and model)

so the wife drives the qashqai and i drive a renault duster - they know how to spot these really quickly...

so now they are learning about all the other cars out there and we play a little game - ok who is going to spot for example VW's so we all pick a different make and see who has the most when we get to our destination.

do you know how many VW's are out there - almost every 2nd car is a VW!!!  We spotted more audi's than bmw's etc etc and on the weekend - choose motorbikes - there are hundreds on the weekend!!

and my daughter is really sharp - so she spots a advertising board with 4 fords - look 4 fords yes i'm now on 35 or whatever lol

bit of fun with the kids  :thumbs:

Our favourite car games were number plate cricket (while "batting", add the last digit of a passing car's numberplate to your score, out if 0) and "I Spy".

Of course "bliksem your brother" was another favourite...

If I recall correctly, our version of car cricket scored as follows:

Japanese cars (Mazda/Nissan/Toyota etc.) - 1 run
European cars (Renault/Jaquar/Peugeot etc.) - 2 runs
German cars (Mercedes, BMW etc.) - 4 runs
Exotics/Sports cars (Porsche 928, Toyota Celica, Nissan 240Z etc.) - 6 runs
Trucks - no score
VW - out

It's good for mental arithmetic - certainly for the seven-year-old. Although it's better suited to single-lane roads than highways

We used to play the same game on longer trips when we kids. Now as a parent I understood why we were taught the game 🤣
