Moving right along with quiet car games (did you miss the travel tanagrams freebie?) we now have magnetic travel bingo! Get each of the kids you’ll be travelling with a cheapie cookie sheet from Wal-Mart for 97 cents and print out your freebies for tons of trapped in a car fun.
Now car bingo was one of my very favorite travel games. My Poppa, sister and I had a set with little doors that would slide over and lock. But we only had 4 boards and one didn’t work very well. So about halfway from Texas to California in the back of a pick up truck with a camper on top (laws were so different back then, weren’t they!) we figured knew which one of the cards was most likely the winner. And that isn’t any fun, is it?
I had mine printed at Kinko’s to save a bunch of money on ink for me. The cost was just under a buck!
Trim your paper in half both ways and you’ve now got your 8 individual boards. I’m guessing that you could probably laminate these guys for them to last longer, but with the way we lose things I figure I can just reprint them if I need to for less money.
And every bingo game needs its daubers! I bought a package of 48 magnets from Wal-Mart for around $6. Glue some colored construction paper onto one side and you’re all set!

I’m working on some other magnetic travel games that I’ll be sharing in the coming weeks. Hoping your Thursday is going really well!
