The Animal Travel Game
Age 3-5 years
Categories Suitable for car journeys
Players 2 or more
Equipment Nothing needed
Formation Anything goes
Game This is good to play on long car trips through the country, because animals are in more abundance there. Players look for certain animals alongside the road. The animals looked for are of the farm kind, because birds would be almost impossible and the game would be over too fast. As one person spots an animal, they say the sound the animal makes and gets a certain amount of points for that animal. eg: cow-moo, horse-neigh, sheep-baa…. etc.
The points are given on the difficulty of the animal that was spotted: cow-1 horse-1 sheep-1 dog-2 cat-3 donkey-3 pig-4
Everyone must agree on the amount of points given for any other animal spotted. The game is played until a player gets to fifteen points.
