>To keep you from getting bored while in the car, pick something to count (like trees, red cars, dumpsters, cows) and see how many you find.
You can set a time limit, like two minutes to make it more of a challenge. You can also play against someone on the other side of the car. In this case see who can find the most by only looking out their own side of the car.
This activity promotes math skills and visual recognition.
