Instead of plugging in a device, get your family holiday trip off to some traditional fun with great-value games and toys.

SCRATCH THAT: With glue and glitter galore, most craft activities are a no-no on long journeys.

WHO ARE YOU?: Playing the classic “Who am I?” game should make short work of any delays.

Take it in turns to think of a person or character, then the others take turns asking questions until they work out who it is.

Remember, you can only ask things that can be answered “Yes” or “No”.
