Checklist Travel Games For Children

Age Of The Child
  • Pay special attention to the age information of the manufacturer for the travel game of your choice, because among the travel games there are also relatively complex brain games as well as games that already require advanced fine motor skills.
  • The manufacturer’s age rating gives you a good overview of the age at which a particular game should be played.
  • However, do not neglect the developmental stage of your child. If the game is too complex or not complex enough for the child despite the appropriate age, you can under- or over challenge him or her.
Joint Play
  • Also check whether your child can play the game alone or whether it is intended for several players, because some travel games are only suitable for 2 or more people, while others can only be played alone.
  • Playing together during the trip is a great way to spend time with the family and is, therefore, all the more fun.
  • Long journeys fly by when you play together, so your child won’t get tired or cranky.
Learning Effect
  • Apart from the fun of playing , travel games are a great way to pack learning content in a playful way.
  • Brain games such as “Who is it?” promote your child’s logical understanding through targeted questions.
  • With coloring books , your child develops his or her drawing talent and can be creative on the road.
  • Various compact board games improve strategic thinking, in which your child must act with foresight in order to win.
