Another popular car/travel game. The benefit of this game is it does not rely on having items to see. We play this as a family team but it works equally well if played individually against each other.
Time needed for one round: 5 minutes.
How to Play Alphabetical Categories
This game is about thinking of words from within a chosen category in alphabetical order.
- Decide on a Category
We usually take turns amongst the players as to what will be the next category.
The categories can be anything but some of our favorites are:
Places (Countries was too challenging for our kids at 6 and 4)
- Game Play
Having chosen a category (e.g Food), then the first players’ answer has to start with an ‘A’, second player with ‘B’ and so on until you get to ‘Z’.
We usually let each kid have two ‘Passes’ whereby the same letter moves to the next player. If everybody struggles with a letter we simply move on.
Its always surprising and educational as to what your children might come out with. Who would have guessed our 4 year old knew what a Narwhal was!
