Creative Travel Word Games


This is an easy game that’s very good for building memory skills. The kids take turns and imagine something they want to bring on their vacation. The first child says: “When I go on vacation, I take with me my bathing suit”. The next child has to repeat the first sentence and add a new object. Like this: “When I go on vacation, I take with me my bathing suit and sunglasses”. And so on, until one of the children forgets an object.


This is a funny alphabet game. First the children decide a category like animals, vegetables, vacation, countries, colors or something else. Then the first child calls out an object from the selected category and the next child has to come up with an object of the same category that starts with the ending letter of the first named object.For example: Category animals. The first child says: “Dog”, then the second child can say “Giraffe”. And so on.


travel board games, 20 questions

One child thinks of an object, person or something general and the others are going to ask the child questions about his choice. He or she can only answer with Yes or No. They have to narrow their questions, until they can guess the persons’ object of his choice. If they can do it within 20 questions, they win!

Each player takes a turn calling out one letter of the alphabet. The players write them down until there are 10 letters. Letters can be used more than once. Then each player composes a phone message using words beginning with the letters in the order they were called out. Try to make it a funny message that makes sense! Who can come up with the coolest message?


Each player needs a pen and paper. Then they draw a pyramid starting with two blocks on the top and then a layer of three blocks, four blocks and so on, until 7 blocks. One player starts by saying a word with two letters. For example: “At”. The players fill the top level of their pyramid with this word and then they have to find a word of three letters by adding only one new letter to the word “at”. For example, they can add “r” to form “art”. The next word is four letters long by adding another new letter and so on. The one who can finish his pyramid first is the winner.
