NOTE: This game can be adapted to suit any players in your vehicle by choosing suitable songs for their age and musical taste. Younger children will appreciate some of the nursery rhyme songs or those by modern groups aimed at their age group, while adults and older children may prefer popular songs from the radio or their favourite CDs of different styles such as Rock, Country, Hymns, Pop etc.

1. One chosen player will start humming a song that everyone should know.

2. When another player thinks they know what the tune is, they sing one or two bars of it. If they are correct, they get to choose another song to hum. If they are not right, the other players can continue to try to guess the song.

VARIATION: If your children are not very musical, you could pre-record a CD with short sections of about 20-30 songs they know. Players score one point for each song they can identify.
