Most people have a game to play where you try to be the first to see a Volkswagen Beetle Bug car. You might know it as slug-bug, or kiss-a-bug, or some other silly name.
For us it's called "Beeper".
Our kids love playing it whenever we go out for a ride in the car no matter what we are heading out to do. It's so simple and easy, but so fun because the kids are so into it! Simply tell everyone to look for as many VW Beetles as they can. When they see one they have to call out "Beeper!" They get a point for every one they see first. The person with the most points at the end of the drive wins.
I usually give a little prize for the winner each time. It could be as simple as getting to push the garage door button closed, or holding the door open for everyone, or choosing which book to read before bed time. Yes, my kids think these are prizes because it gives them a privilege and sometimes allows them to act bigger then they are. It works because they are still young, but prizes don't have to be huge things all the time or even things that cost. Simple things are good enough for most kids.
Any other fun versions of "Beeper"?
