Overview

Children are restless creatures. When their freedom to move about is restricted to a car, an airplane, a bus, a restaurant, even a waiting room, they get fidgety, become cranky.

How can you make traveling hours and waiting room minutes be pleasant experiences for restless children?

Adults generally have little trouble passing their time in these small environments, but most children quickly become restless. Their tech wizardry can temporarily lose its appeal, and magazines and books don’t captivate them for long. The passing scenery is not engaging, and the stimulation and fear of strange places, unfamiliar situations, and new events can create anything but a calm, enjoyable trip or wait.

For this book, the authors of TravelMates and Hey Mom, I’m Bored! have revised their collection of games, many of which have been around for decades, if not centuries.

These games are invaluable for providing hours of fun for all ages and best of all, there are no required supplies. The possibilities are limited only by your creativity. You’ll play them again and again and in more than one way. They have been field-tested by the most demanding and critical user they will ever have, their creators and their children.

Let the games begin!

Meet the Author

Story Evans and Lise O’Haire are veteran moms who have extensive experience traveling, carpooling, waiting in lines, restaurants or the doctor’s office with their children. They also understand kids want to play anytime, anyplace, indoors or outside.

Playing classic games with their own families growing up—whether it was with siblings,visiting cousins, grandparents, on the school yard or with neighborhood friends—was a indispensable and economical way to entertain all ages.

Evans and O’Haire created these books with the intent to combine new technology with old fashion play. Digital devices are everywhere and so are kids who want to play. These games have existed for generations. Now there is a book dedicated to families in this digital environment. Let the games begin!

Story Evans has a background in communications and Lise O’Haire in market research. Both authors live in Atlanta and previously published TravelMates and Hey Mom I’m Bored.
