Games on the Go

Scout Elves know a thing or two about making travel time all about fun! As your family sets out on summer vacation or makes a day trip to visit a landmark, relatives or an amusement park, take some game ideas from the elves to keep little ones entertained and occupied no matter the destination!


1. On a road trip

Games on the Go –The Elf on the Shelf

While cruising down the highway, kids can use these fun state facts and this printable map to learn more about each state as they play a fun road trip game. Each time a child sees a license plate from one of the states, they can color it in on their map and read off that state’s fun fact. The first one to spot a license plate from each of the 50 states is the champion!
