Let me entertain YUU!

“Are we nearly there yet?”….those dreaded words every parent doesn’t want to hear when you know you still have hours of travelling ahead. Well fear no more because we’ve compiled our top list of portable fun that’s perfect to pack in a YUUbag for a journey along with some of our favourite ‘play anywhere anytime’ games.

Our top recommendations to pack in a YUUbag

With over 20 pockets and compartments there’s a place for everything in a YUUbag, keeping all their favourite things nicely organised and ready to grab-and-go when you’re heading out . What’s more, every YUUbag comes with a fold-down desk and a free YUUfun pack which includes a magnetic game of snakes and ladders, colouring pencils, a drawing pad and a keyring.

Here’s what else our YUUkids have told us they love keeping in their YUUbags;

  • Trump cards
  • Playing cards (check out our funky YUUcards)
  • Tablets full of their favourite music, movies and games
  • Reading books
  • Puzzle and activity books
  • Headphones
  • Travel journal
  • Sticker books
  • Travel games – favourites includes scrabble, ludo, pass the pig, bananagram, connect four, battleships to name just a few!
  • Dolls and teddy bears
  • … food (of course!)

and don’t forget you can keep it all safe with a YUUlock!

What will YUU keep in yours?

Our top 10 boredom beating games

Here’s a few of our favourite games that are sure to pass some travel time and keep everyone entertained. These don’t require anything other than imagination so are great fun and easy to play wherever you are!

 

1) I Spy – a classic for all ages. “I spy with my little eye something beginning with…”

2) Colour I spy – a variation on the original but rather than naming the first letter, players name a colour. E.g. “I spy with my little eye something coloured red”

3) Hum a tune – hum a tune to the group and if they work out what it is they become the hummer. Make it harder for older kids by requiring the name of the song and the artist.

4) The alphabet game – choose a category (e.g. animals) and then take turns to name something in that category beginning with every letter of the alphabet.

5) The A-Z game – this one gets very tricky! Someone starts by saying “I’m so hungry I could eat an apple”. The next person adds something beginning with B, e.g. “I’m so hungry I could eat an apple and a balloon” and so on through the alphabet. Can you get all the way to Z?!

6) Buzz – players take turns counting starting at 1. Everytime a number is reached that is divisible by 7 or has a 7 in it, the player needs to say “Buzz” instead of the number. If someone forgets it’s back to 1 again!

7) The Yes or No game – one person is asked questions but can’t answer using “Yes” or “No”. If they do then it’s someone else’s turn to resist the temptation!

8) Story telling – someone starts telling a story. They have to speak without hesitation for one minute and when their minute is up the next person has to pick up where they left off. Perhaps the next best selling novel will be created?!

9) Word Associations – a fun and fast game where one person picks any word (be as obscure as you like!) and the next person has to say the first word that comes into their head linked to this. Keep going round until someone falters then start a new word.

10)Who am I – pick a category (e.g. animals, famous singers etc) and one person thinks of something within that category. Other players ask questions and can only receive a yes or no answer until they correctly guess. To vary this, the player who picks could describe and the others can guess.
