We all know how important it is to spend time playing with our kids. Our blog Play with your Child! That’s what they really want was a reminder for parents to do just that. Using the time spent in the car during the journeys back from school or drives to classes can easily be made productive with easy games. Kids not only get entertained but it helps in parent-child bonding too. Here are some games you could play with your children for fun while also educating them.

1. Know Your World

Say the name of any country, city, state and ask your child to say the next name starting with the ending letter of your said name. Antartica, Aurangabad, Delhi….This way the games continues and teaches your child about different states and nations.

2. Nursery Rhymes

If your child is a pre schooler or a kindergarten student make him/her recite a rhyme by giving hints from that particular rhyme. If you want your child to recite ‘Jack and Jill’, hint out words like ‘water and hill’ to him/her. This helps your child in learning and memorizing.

3. Sharpen your Memory

Help your child in memorizing and learning names of colours, fruits, animals and more with this fun and easy game. This game is also played with children at the Montessori, Kindergarten and Primary levels. Eg – an animal with a tail and whiskers who loves drinking milk is? A cat. This helps the child to know three things about an animal. Similar can be done with names of flowers and birds by hinting about their colour/s or the first letters of their names.

4. Eye Spy

This is another game to help children differentiate among objects. While you are stuck at a traffic jam, ask your child to point out at a lamp post or at the traffic signal or at any small shop nearby giving hints. This game can also be played with objects within the car such as the steering wheel, seat belt and gear. They really have to apply their mind to come up with appropriate questions and answers!

5. Maths is Fun

This game helps your child in counting digits. Ask your child to add or subtract the digits in your phone number or the number plate of a car near you or on the numbers you spot at street addresses. Multiplication and Division can also be done depending on your child’s age.
