Going for a long drive over the holiday can be fun, for the first hour at least.
After that, things can get a little boring, despite your extensive music collection or stash of DVDs for kids to watch. Why not get back to basics with a few classic driving games that will keep you sharp and entertained? You might even learn a thing or two.
Good old I Spy always keeps everyone on their toes. Keep it simple and stick to the basic rule of it must be visible at the time, not 10 k's back or almost impossible to see, and you can have a lot of fun.
Spot-o is another good visual game you can play different ways. Simply nominate an object and the first to spot it, and call "Spot-o", wins. For example, first yellow car, first motorcycle or first convertible. You can even turn it into a game of Car Bingo. It can be a quick or slow game, that's what keeps your attention.
Tunnels and bridges is as basic as it gets, but can break the boredom in an instant. Quite simply, when you're about go under a tunnel or over a bridge, hold your breath. Sounds easy, but you'd be surprised how far some 'crossings' are when you're about to burst.
