Press Reviews

I tried these 50 Things to Do on a Car Journey cards out on a three hour car journey from London to Staffordshire and it’s not an exaggeration to say they were a lifesaver! The cards feature games, puzzles and quizzes which are perfect to keep young children entertained on long car journeys.

Younger children have even more cards in the 100 Things for Little Children to do on a journey set in which, as well as a myriad options for drawing ('someone magical sitting on a spotty toadstool'), puzzles and the odd maze, I am delighted to see that there is a card which encourages children to look out of the car window to find various items. Another option is 50 Things to do on a car Journey and all that has to be done is to choose a card and follow the instructions of the back. Either of these would be great help now that motorway travelling is a distinct hindrance when it comes to playing pub cricket.

Put the fun back into long journeys with these brilliant activity cards. Each card features a game or puzzle guaranteed to keep kids (and adults!) entertained. Keep them in the car and you’ll never hear that cry of 'are we there yet?'.
