License Plate Game

This one may be a new one to you, but it is tons of fun!

Here’s the premise: Each time you see a pack of cows while driving, take turns. One person will open the window and yell “Heeeeey Co-ow!” loud enough so the cows can hear. For every cow that turns around, you get one point!

OK, so it may sound a little ridiculous. And there may be some debate as you count up your points. But it’s definitely a fun one to play!
