Fun kids car games include license plate activities to pass the time.
This game is one of the cool kids math games and spy kids games.
Players pick a number between 1 and 9. No 2 players can pick the same number.
They want to watch for passing cars plates to find pairs or three of the number they have picked.
When a player sees a plate with 2 of the number he picked, he shouts it out and gets one point.
If the number appears side by side, he gets 2 points. If the number appears 3 times in a row, he gets 3 points.
Players can use the same license plate to find their numbers.
The first player to reach 25 points wins. Or, for longer car trips you can go up to 50 or even 75 points.
Or, try finding letters on the plates. You can use the same scoring system as with numbers.
Or, you can play the alphabet backwards. This helps reorganize the game a bit.
Start with Z and find all the letters until you get to A. You can use the same plate.
Since there are more letters than numbers, you can end up playing this game most of your road trip!
You can even pick one letter and one number and play that way. Use your imaginations and have fun with it!
