License Plate Game

The scenario: You and your family are taking a road trip across Montana. You're stuck in the back seat of the car with nothing to do. You keep saying to yourself, "Why did I have to forget my Gameboy? Why?!" Fear not. We have a cure for your boredom. Try this fun car game to pass the time. All you need are some colored pencils and a print out of this page, which includes directions, a list of Montana counties and their corresponding license plate prefixes, and a county map for you to color.

Directions: Slip on your headphones, crank up your favorite music and check out the cars going past. If you've ever played blackout bingo, this game should be a piece of cake. Let's say the first Montana license plate you see starts with the prefix 1. If so, color in Silver Bow county on the map. Keep looking for different prefixes until you've colored in all the counties on the map.
