3 Fun Family Activities For The Car Along for the Ride

    • Kids & Family

This is a jam packed episode perfect for a weekend road trip or a Saturday at home with your kids! We’re playing Would Your Rather Switch Hands Drawing (grab the kids some paper and something to draw with!) and I’ve got a special imagination exercise that just might buy you 5 minutes of quiet time.
Listen to this episode with your kids and have the most fun!

Car Game For Kids - Would You Rather  Would You Rather is one of my most favorite games ever! It’s creative and silly, makes you think a little bit, and can reveal information about people that you might not know! 
I’m sharing Would You Rather Questions and will give a few seconds for everyone to say their answers. If you need more time with a question, just press pause on the show!
Kids Drawing Game - Now Switch Hands For this activity, kids will need a couple of pieces of clean paper and a writing utensil.
Here's how it works: I will give instructions for something to write or draw. I’ll call out "Now Switch Hands!" and the kids have to switch hands and keep drawing or writing. If they finish a section before I give the signal to move on, they’ll just start over and keep on going!
I would love to see pictures of the crazy hand-switching artwork! Snap a pic and tag or send a DM to Along for the Ride on Facebook or Instagram @aftr_kidspodcast. I’d love to see these amazing works of art!
Quiet Imaginative Thinking Exercise For Kids One thing that I loved doing when I was a kid and even know as an adult is to just let my mind wander and come up with fun ideas and possibilities! I want to give us a little time and space to do that here on the podcast. 
Here is the challenge - I’m going to ask you a question and give you something to think about. Then everyone has to be totally quiet for 5 whole minutes. 
Here’s the Question - “if you had all the money in the world to help people in need, what would you do?”
After this episode is over, don’t let it play to another episode or don’t put music on. Let’s have everyone try to sit quietly and think for 5 minutes! You could also do this on your own time! I bet your kid(s) will come up with some great answers!
Take it a step further and help them see how we don’t have to have all the money in the world to help people. Talk with them about what it looks like to help people by being kind, serving others, and offering to help.
