Ready for a Road Trip

My six-year-old daughter and I have this little game we play on road trips. We go through the alphabet and find each letter on a road sign. Problem is: my daughter is getting too good at it. I needed a new way to challenge her. When I got my package of Scooter's Vacation goodies from Imaginisce, I knew there was a golden idea here, if only I could find the time to execute it. And I finally did!

Introducing...Road Trip Bingo!

Now, in addition to spotting letters, she has to spot things like airplanes, dogs, restaurants, boats, etc. And she has to get them in a row of five to win. That should keep her busy, huh?

It was actually a really easy project. I started with a magnetic dry erase board from Wal-Mart, covered it with Kraft cardstock, then used my square punch to make the squares. I cut the letters on my Cricut (except for the title...that's Quickutz). And I used the i-Top with the new magnet daddies to create the markers. I love that the whole thing is magnetic so the pieces will stay in place, no matter how crazy my driving is.

The only question left is: what's the prize for getting a BINGO? Guess I need to work on that.

BUT...while I'm talking prizes, there's just a few days left to submit your layout for the February Sketch on the Imaginisce blog. You can win your very own i-Top bundle (and you SO need one!) or a $75 prize package. The deadline is Thursday, February 25, so get yours in!

This absolutely adorable! I love Scooter's Vacation and this project is top notch. Maybe as a prize, you can allow your daughter to pick the next CD or radio station to listen to for a certain time. Super cute, Robyn!
