License Plate Game

License plate game is one of the fun word games for kids and fun car games.

Before You Start

2 or more players
Ages: 6 and up
Need pencils and paper


For young kids, write a list of 5 to 10 three letter words and give each player a copy.

Players want to find letters to spell each word on their list by looking at passing car plates.

Letters need to be spotted in the order they appear in the word.

Example, a word is "top". Players need to find the T first, then the O and the P last. As they find a letter they cross it off on their list.

Or the word is "cat". The kids need to find the "c" first, then the "a" and the "t" last.

Only one letter can be used per plate and only one player can use a letter from that plate.

The first player to find all the words on her list is the winner.

Older kids can make words out of a license plate. If a plate has "STL" on it, players can call out "stall" "still" or "stroll".


To make it more challenging, kids can make a sentence out of the letters.

It doesn't have to make sense! The funnier the better! Have a good time with this - laughing is good!

The player who calls a word out the fastest gets one point.

Play continues until either a preset amount of time has passed in which case the player with the highest number of points wins.

Or kids can play until a preset number of 15 is reached. The player who gets 15 the fastest is the winner.

You can also play this with road signs if the kids can't see the passing plates.
