The right games in the car during road trips can be a wonderful way to prevent boredom and a fun opportunity to stay connected to your family and other passengers on your adventure on the road. There are so many easy and creative games and activities that are sure to keep your child from moaning, "Are we there yet?” over and over and keep any adult entertained.
Here are some suggestions for games to play in the car:
Pick an upcoming exit, location, or landmark. Figure out how far away it is, the time, and your current speed. Have each person in the car predict the exact time you'll arrive at the location. Let the winner choose the next rest stop!
Challenge people in the car to recall recent events. "What was the server's name at breakfast?", “How many stalls did the last rest stop have?”, “How much was the soda we bought at the last gas station?"
Print out the reviews of places you'll be visiting and have the people in the car read it out loud dramatically. Try accents or imitate grandma's voice. Have fun with it. The more dramatic the better.
Make a 5x5 BINGO boards before you leave for your road trip. Fill the spaces with popular and common logos you'll see on highways: McDonald's, Quiznos, Motel 6, Starbucks, etc... Make sure each individual board is unique and create call cards with each logo. The first player with five in a row wins on their board wins. If you need to kill more time, the first person who fills up the entire card wins.
Take a timer and ask yourself and the children to finish one-minute challenges like reciting the alphabet in reverse, singing every other word in "Row Row Row Your Boat" or reading a list of all fifty states.
