"Are we there yet?"
These games are meant to help you laugh and learn about the family and friends you're traveling with. Great for roadtrips, planes, restaurants, hotel lobbies... just about anywhere. I'm always surprised by what people say, especially from the littlest kids in the group.

Choose a category and have each person share what their favorite is. Ask about a favorite TV show, movie, ice cream flavor, toy, color, character, song etc. Take turns thinking of what "Favorite" question to ask next. (Submitted by Amanda_Lisk)
This is one of the silliest games that's guaranteed to get everyone laughing. Some of my favorites are:
Would you rather fly like a bird or swim like a fish?
Would you rather be able to only whisper or only shout?
Would you rather be a great big giant or a tiny, little person?
Would you rather be Woody or Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story?
Would you rather be a garbage man or a fireman? (This one's only for 3 year old boys obsessed with trucks)
This is all about sharing the highs and lows of the day and best for later in the day. It's a great way to have your kids talk about their day in a fun and easy way.
Pretend to be a philosophy major and get creative with these hypothetical questions. Be sure to ask the "and why?" to get the full story on everyone's answer. Here are some to start with:
If you were a superhero, what superpower would you want?
If you were a Disney princess, which would you want to be?
If your house was on fire, what are the 3 things that you'd bring?
If you found a $100 on the street, what would you do with it?
Each player thinks of different actions that they do through out the day and what it sounds like. Each person tries to make the sound for example "tssss kook" and the rest of the players guess where that sound is made. The answer would be the front door because it's the sound of me unlocking the door. 4 and 5 year old boys love turning this into potty humor, so parents beware. :)
Life just seems to get busier and busier and we often forget to share all the special moments that happen in our lives with our family. This is a great time to make sure everyone knows what is the funniest thing that happened to you? How about the best? Worst? Scariest? Most embarrassing?
This one is always a lot of fun. The first person tells the group 3 things about themselves of which two are true and one is a lie. For example, "I love playing the drums. I favorite lovey is Elmo. I fought Darth Maul at Disneyland and won. The rest of the group guesses which statement they think is the lie. It's always interesting to see how creative your kids are about their "lies."
