Carbingo! The kids’ new favorite car game

Here we are again! Fresh and fruity after a great holiday.

The kids are at school, now everything can regain it’s own “normal” rythm.

We have had the best summer holiday! We went to Denmark, and it was awesome. The big dream of our son Sietse was to go to Legoland, so we did that too 🙂 Great park by the way, even Dear Hubby, who has a general aversion for themeparks, had a great time!

Fot the car trip to Denmark I saw a fun idea on the Great Web: Carbingo! Out of a pillbox! With candy!!

Huh? What?

Let me explain.

Each hole of the pillbox belongs to an item (for example a red car), and when you see this item, you may open the matching hole and eat what’s inside! And because a pillbox only has small holes, only small items can be put in, such as a small candy, a grape, a few raisins, ..

Me and the kids made our own version of the pillboxbingo (nice word for Scrabble), with stickers I cut out with the Silhouette Cameo.

Together we thought of things that you can see on a road trip, such as a bike, a house with solar panels, a windmill, and more.

We searched for matching pictures, and I cut the in the right size for the pillboxlids (again, nice word for Scrabble!) in the colors Sietse and Marijke liked.

The kids really enjoyed the carbingo, anf asked if they could do it again on the way home!!

Sure! Happy backseat, happy frontseat 🙂

The kids didn’t succeed in finding all the pictures on the trip, some were hard to find (such as the helicopter and the icecream) .

You could make your own carbingo!

And if you don’t have a Silhouette (or similar machine) you could draw of write on a label and cut that to size, or write numbers on the lids and make a list with matching “bingo-rewards”.

have fun, and a nice day!
