Peanut

Stuck on a bus with nothing to do? Walking to an activity along surface streets and need to divert your camper’s attention from the walk? This game is an old favorite. It used to be played where the winner got to sock the loser in the arm each time they spotted a “peanut”.

Object: Be the first to spot a VW bug.

How To Play: This game is best played on a bus on the way to an activity. It keeps the campers’ minds off of “are we there yet?”  Remember the old 1960s and 1970s Volkswagen bugs that still seem to be on the road? When you see one, be the first to call out “PEANUT”. For each VW bug you spy first, you get a point. The person with the most points gets a predetermined privilege.

Since the VW bug has had a recent incarnation in the new millenium, this game has the potential to be around for another 40 years.
