Travel Games for 6-9 Year Olds

Travel Games for 6-9 Year Olds

Hi Suzie,

Its my god daughters Birthday this week and she is heading to America in a couple of weeks, so I wanted to get her some bits and pieces for the plane journey. Would you have any travel games or toys, she will be 6 and her brother is 9 so something that would be suitable for both,

Cheers, ——

Hi ——.

Thanks for thinking of my shop. If she is good at spelling, then this travel boggle could be fun.

My girls love the Djeco Mini Cards Packs. They have the floral colouring ones and the wordsearch ones. They are a very handy size for travelling with.

They also really enjoy some of the Melissa and Doug crafts that are good for travelling with. Any of the Scratch Art packs are light and the mess-free glitter  is something she could do while travelling,
although her brother probably wouldn’t want to join in.

They might enjoy the the Scooby Doo Card Game

or they could play games over and over with the Chalk Activity Book

My girls also love the Beetle Game  although there are some small pieces so it may not be a great idea to play if the flight is turbulent.

The Yes/No game is fun to play and is light and small.

These Creativity Placemats are handy to bring on holidays when they are eating out, although I think they may be a little advanced for a 6 year old.

If she is creative, I’ve just adding this Spiro Graph Book to my range of toys and it looks really cool.

Or these Colouring Velvet Cards are lovely and you can’t colour outside the lines, even if the journey is rough! Most colouring velvet is for younger children but this set of ‘Forest’ scenes are recommended for children aged 6-9 years.

Thanks again for your enquiry,
