I Went On Holiday is a popular memory game which is perfect for keeping kids amused when they are confined to a table, car or waiting room! You need at least some geographical knowledge so it is best played with older kids.
The first player thinks of a city, country or continent beginning with the letter a and then says, for example:
I went on holiday in Albania
The next player repeats the sentence and adds somewhere beginning with b, for example:
I went on holiday in Albania and Bolivia.
The next player adds somewhere beginning with c:
I went on holiday in Albania, Bolivia and Church Crookham
Play continues until someone cant remember the list or makes a mistake. Depending on their age, you can either prompt them or disqualify them! Keep going until all players but one are disqualified, or until you reach the end of the alphabet.
If playing with older children, you can make the game even more difficult by adding a travelling companion. For example,
I went on holiday in Albania with Auntie Annie, Bolivia with Batty Bertie, and Church Crookham with Charlie Crackpot"
