During a recent trip with my niece and nephew, I was reminded of the travel bingo game my siblings and I had as children.  The game we had was just a heavy card with little windows to slide over each item as you saw it.  I decided that they needed a travel bingo game, but a better one than that.

I started with two of these: http://www.cardinalgames.com/game/113 and two of these: http://www.amazon.com/Making-Memories-Magnetic-Stamp-StorageTin/dp/B00426BVPG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1317574104&sr=8-1.  I picked all of these up at a Tuesday Morning for about $8.00 total.

I made some bingo cards in Publisher using clip art and printed and laminated them.  I got two packs of magnets and covered each magnet with a red sticker on one side and a blue sticker on the other side so the magnets can be used as game pieces for any future games I might come up with.

The magnets are all kept in the stamp storage tin, and the kids can use the inside of the lid as the surface for the bingo cards. 

I created 3 categories with 2 cards for each - license plates, vehicles and regular travel bingo.  For the license plates, I put Hawaii and Alaska over to the side so if they ever do see one (rarely down here in the South), they'll get a special bingo.

Tins with game boards, magnets and checker set that came with the tin.

Painted to cover the checkers tin.  I used the Martha Stewart any surface paint.

And the cards:

I wish I would have thought of something like this for our 23 hour road trip we took this past summer! I printed out scavenger hunt lists but they ended up crumpled up on the floor of the car. This is a great idea!
