ROAD TRIP GAMES
Some of my fondest memories from childhood were playing games on a seemingly unending road trip. Little did I know that I was learning all the while. My mom and grandma probably did but I was oblivious to that fact...until I became a speech therapist and definitely when I became a parent.
Some of the BEST language, phonological and articulation games you can play are IN THE CAR!
Here is a list of my favorites:
*My Father Owns A Grocery Store
*I Spy (use colors or sounds)
*Travel Bingo (purchase or make your own!)
*License Plate Game (see how many states you can find!)
*Moving Through The Alphabet (use those road signs and license plates to find each letter of the alphabet)
Over the years my family and I have enjoyed each of these on our yearly trips "Up North."
What are yours?
As always, thank you for reading,
