We’re on the move
This weekend it is estimated that there will be 14 million car journeys made in the UK as the school holidays start.
Instead of despairing with those over-excited kids on their way to the beach, why not play a game together as a family. Try this one taken from ‘Usborne Activity Cards – 50 things to do on a journey’
In My Backpack
1. The game is begun by one person saying “In my backpack, I have…..” followed by an object. For example it might go like this: “In my backpack, I have a delicious ham sandwich”
2. The next person repeats what the first person said and adds another object. It makes the game funnier if the objects are not related to each other in any way , such as: “In my backpack, I have a delicious ham sandwich and a rusty trumpet.”
3. Everyone takes turns adding items to the backpack, each time repeating the growing list of items that are already in there. The items must be repeated in the correct order.
4. When someone forgets an item, or tries to say the list in the wrong order, then that person is out of the game. The winner is the last player left in the game.
