Games for 6 - 10yrs Number Plate Bingo
This needs a little preperation before you leave - make some bingo cards - just rectangular pieces of paper with a 15 or so different numbers on them - make them all different - if you make the file on your computer (eg a word document) you can just print out more when needed.
When the game is due to start you hand out the cards and each player has to try to find the numbers on their card in their surroundings - if you are on a train then train times contain numbers as do platforms and carriages.
In an airport all the planes have different flight numbers which will be up in the departure lounge and of course on the road there are all the car number plates and motorway exits.
It is worth putting a bit of thought into the cards and thinking up some appropriate numbers for the type of journey you are going on - you could always have a few wild cards in there.
I usually make a list of all the numbers that I think will be appropriate then divide them up into the different cards so there are about 12-15 on each one. Then give each of your kids a pen and off they go.
If they are prone to cheating as each child has different numbers on their card you can get them to point the number out when they spot it.
