Hold onto yer hats, pardners, because I am about to change your CARPOOL LIVES!!
Do you dread your carpool day?
Or do the neighbor kids drive you batty during the 15-minute drive from school?
Well, have I got a FUN SOLUTION for you!
Just last week during a fun lunch with some girlfriends, I heard about a FANTASTIC IDEA from none other than the CARPOOL ROCKSTAR herself. Well, when I heard about this idea, she became known to me...as the Carpool Rockstar.
So, what does the Carpool Rockstar do--you know--that makes her the Carpool Rockstar?
She plays CASH CAB with her carload of neighborhood kids.
(What's Cash Cab? Click here to check it out. Also, please climb out from under that rock.)
Brilliant, right? Ahead of time, Janna prints out some Disney trivia, throws it into her purse, and just when the kids least expect it...or when she cannot stand another minute of rowdy kids...she pops down the little rear-view mirror.
DING DING DING!!! When she pops the little mirror down, CASH CAB BEGINS! And bonus for the person riding shotgun--they get to be the "Final answer person." All the kids work together to decide the answer, but the front seat person gives the official answer.
Isn't this brilliant? Janna said this game sort-of evolved. In the beginning, she would just ask random trivia off the top of her head. After a while, she started planning ahead and printing off some trivia.
And the prizes? Well, they are not elaborate. Sometimes, the prize is just the satisfaction of playing. Other times, it's whatever fun snack she has in the car.
