Planning a road trip and looking for some fun games to keep the kids entertained? We’ve got you covered! Here are a few games for road trips that are sure to entertain…or at least keep the kids busy enough to stop asking “Are We There Yet?!” Here you’ll find links to ideas on Moms & Munchkins along with some free printables.
Games for Road Trips:
Airport Games: Here’s a link to a free printable airport bingo card and airport word search.
Road Trip Bingo: A few days before your trip, have your children create their own road trip bingo cards using some stickers or markers for coloring along with this free printable template.
Road Trip Scavenger Hunt: Your kids will have to keep their eyes focused on the surroundings in order to find the items on this free printable road trip scavenger hunt.
I Spy: My husband and I play this game on long road trips – one person take a turn choosing an object they see (either in the vehicle or outside) and says “I spy with my little eye, something with # letters that starts with the letter X”. For example, on a road trip in the winter I once said “I spy with my little eye, something with 4 letters that starts with the letter S” – the answer was Snow! It’s an easy and fun way to help pass the time.
Secret Grab Bags: A few days before your trip, make a stop at your local dollar store and pick up and few little games and books for the kids. Wrap each of them or place each prize in a sealed brown paper bag. You can set specific times in the trip (for example, every 250 km) where each child gets to choose one mystery grab bag. These items could be a small snack, a book, a game, toy or anything else your children like.
