Travel Games

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been hard at work making some fun things for my kids to play with on our road trip we are taking this summer!  I have FINALLY finished all the projects and took pictures of them all to share with you.  

I sure hope the kids enjoy these.  I took sheet metal and made these magnet board games.  On one side of all the boards are BINGO games.  I used images from many cricut cartridges to draw the images on white paper using mini gel pens with a pencil gripper around them.  They came out much better than I had hoped!  I arranged them all in Design Studio so I was able to draw them out and then cut them out all at the same time.  I wanted to cut out the letters for BINGO with my cricut, but as I was running out of time to get them done I settled for some letter stickers that I have had FOREVER!

On the back side of each BINGO game is a different game.  There is a Tic-Tac-Toe, Colors, numbers, shapes, and letters.  I plan on playing a few different games where they need to find object in those colors/shapes or find the numbers/letters on signs, etc.

I also made a few things with material.  I made a new and improved crayon roll for each kid.  (It took me a few tries before finding the best way to close them!) I am hoping these keep the crayons up off the floor and seat in the car!

Lastly, I gathered a bunch of small objects and created a beanbag I Spy game for each kid.  I thought these would be great to use on any trip in the car and for keeping them busy and quiet in church!


  1. oh Megan those turned out awesome!!!! You have been busy. I bet the kids love playing them.

  2. They haven't had a chance to play with them yet. I am keeping them until the trip! I don't want them to get bored with them before we even leave. I will be sure to update with how well they worked! LOL

  3. Megan can't wait to hear how the kids liked the games. I have a blog award for you over on my blog. Be sure to stop by!!!
