Fun with Maps

If you get tired of being asked “how much farther is it?,” try giving your child their own map.  You can photocopy part of your road map or atlas, then show your child how to use signs and markers to find your location.  If your child is old enough, you can ask them challenging questions like “what’s that mountain range over there?” or “how many miles is it to Round Lake?”

A great way to introduce your kids to a new campground or camping area.

Take a family trip through nature when you go on this self-designed scavenger hunt.  First, make up a list of things you want to look for.  Then, head out on a nature hike and have each person check off the items they see.  If you'd rather (if you're hiking with smaller kids), search as a team and point out what you see so everyone can take a look.

Secret Writing

If you have more than one kid in the car, have one child close their eyes and put out their hand.  The other child uses their finger to trace a letter on the palm of the out-turned hand.  Try to guess the letter, then trade places.  If the kids are good at guessing, they can try spelling out whole words.
