29 Kid Games to Play On the Go

Whether you're at the doctor's office, the airport, or the post office, waiting is never pleasant. But when you're accompanied by your small child, it can be positively harrowing. As long as you're not afraid to be a little goofy, these simple games can help you head off disaster and have some fun too.

Where's the Baby? This silly game is perfect for a dentist's waiting room and is sure to get a laugh from your baby, although you may also get some strange stares from other people. While your baby is in your arms, suddenly ask, "Where's the baby?" Look all over the room, especially in ludicrous places, like in your bag or your shoe. Finally, notice your baby and say, "Oh, there's the baby!" If she laughs, milk it for all it's worth. You'll get tired of it long before your baby will.

Who's This? Laminate photos of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and their pets too. Put them on a key ring. Say the name of each person as your baby looks at the picture. When that gets boring, point to the cat and ask, "Is that Grandma?" Then try to get your baby to shake her head "no."
