THE BEST ROAD TRIP GAMES

ENTERTAINMENT FOR EVERYONE

Back in the day before cell phones, tablets, and DVD players in the car, road trips were full of fun family games made up to keep kids entertained. Switch off the electronics and turn your boring car ride into a memorable experience while also passing the time with some of these road trip games.


CATEGORIES
Have one person in the car pick a category. For example, you can choose country songs, football teams, movies, restaurants, etc. Everyone else in the vehicle then takes turns naming something in that category. Keep going until someone is stumped or repeats something another person already said, then the next person chooses a new category. This game will keep you on your toes and laughing.

GUESS THE SONG
Turn on the radio or your favorite playlist. Whoever can shout out the name of the song first, wins. Extra points can be awarded if they can also guess the artist. Then, enjoy the full song or skip to the next one to keep the game going. Be sure to cover your screen if it shows the song name!


ALPHABET GAME
This classic road trip game is sure to keep players entertained. Take turns finding letters of the alphabet on the open road, like on signs, license plates, and buildings you pass. Some letters are sure to be stumpers, so keep your eyes peeled.

I SPY
One person in the vehicle says, “I spy with my little eye something…” and then vaguely describes something they see. For example, they can say a color, a letter the object starts with, etc. The other players take turns asking yes or no questions until they can guess what the item is. The winner who guesses the correct item gets to “spy” next.

LICENSE PLATE GUESSING GAME
Print off a copy of a U.S. map for each child. Every time they spot a license plate from a different state, they get to mark it on the map. It’s a fun game that will keep them entertained, and is also a mini-geography lesson teaching them where the states are.

STORY TIME

Someone begins a story with a single sentence. Then, the next person builds onto that sentence with one of their own. Continue around the vehicle until you find the perfect moment to say, “The end.” Stories can be as long or as short, as wild or as simple as you want. This is sure to keep creative juices flowing, with plenty of laughs along the way.
