How many times will your kids ask, “Are we there yet?” while traveling? Kids hate being cooped up in a vehicle for long. Rather than rely on those TVs in the backseat, parents can help entertain their kids while on the road and reinforce their math skills at the same time. With these sure-to-please 2nd grade math games, your child will have tons of fun on the road without even realizing that he or she is learning.

### Guess the Number

This math game is similar to ‘I Spy,’ except numbers are used. Tell your child to think of a number between 1-100. You will try to guess your child’s number by asking questions such as, “Is it greater than 20?” “Is it an odd number?” Your child can only answer “yes” or “no.” After you guess your child’s number, you pick a number and let your child try to guess by asking similar questions.

### Find the Numbers

On a piece of paper, have your child make a chart listing numbers 1-50. Like a Bingo game of sorts, whenever they spot a number on a road sign, license plate, billboard, etc., have your child make an X on that number. The first to find all 50 numbers is the winner!
