How many times have you been driving along, looking for a traveling game to play? This simple game is easy and requires nothing more than some imagination for the parents and observation skills for the kids. Young children especially love to be the first to spot something unusual!

1. An adult chooses an item for the players to observe.

2. The first person to see the item gets one point. The player with the highest score after ten minutes wins the game.

3. Some examples of items are:

    police officer
    red sports car
    the number "7"
    a circle
    something purple

4. If no one can see a certain item within say one or two minutes, you may like to choose another item, while the first item can be given more points for the first person to spot it eventually.
