This Word Starts with A
Here is a game for long car rides, and it works for everyone in the car, even if there is a wide age range. For example, if your kids are 5, 7 and 10, have one kid pick a letter and have everyone in the car come up with as many words as he or she can that start with that letter. The catch is that while the youngest can use any words he wants, the 7 year old can only count words of two syllables or more. The 10 year old only gets to count 3 syllable words, and the grownups are limited to the four syllable doozies!
