Don’t make your hints so direct that the kids will guess the right answer in one try. Focus on less obvious questions to get them thinking. For a cow, say, “I have four stomachs,” not “I make milk and say moo.”

A simple way to keep young kids laughing on long road trips, guessing games also help build children’s vocabulary, comprehension, and categorization skills. There are many variations, and once you get started, you may find you’re making up your own versions.
Pose questions that test kids on a wide variety of topics, from geography to popular culture.
