The License Plate Game
One of the games we introduced the girls to on this trip was the license plate game; how many state license plates (and Canadian provinces, while we're at it) can you find while we're driving. They did remarkably well, finding 38 US states;
Nevada New Hampshire
New Jersey New York
Rhode Island Tennessee
West Virginia Wisconsin
They also saw two Canadian Provinces;
We had hoped to see more provinces as we went west, but had no luck there.
Still, on the road for just under 60 hours and they found 38 states. Pretty good for the first time playing the game, and we only went half way across the country using pretty much the same roads there and back again. They didn't have quite so much luck with the number game, only getting as high as 64 on the entire trip (although, I don't think we really put nearly much effort into that one as we did the license plate game).
Next time out I think I'll add the alphabet game to the list. More to do to pass the time and still keep interacting with one another instead of withdrawing into little cocoons of personal entertainment.
