Family Vacation: Fun Roadtrip Games for Kids
Anyone who's been on a road trip with children understands the need to keep them entertained. Here are a few ideas: I'm Going to ___ Recommended for ages 5+
In this game, you start by stating where you are going. For example, if you are going to Florida, you would say "I am going to Florida and I'm taking __ with me". The first player says something that starts with an A, the next B and so on. The hard part? Remembering what everyone else says! An example:
- Player one: I'm going to Florida and I'm taking an alligator. Player two: I'm going to Florida and I'm taking an alligator and a Barbie Doll. Player three: I'm going to Florida and I'm taking an alligator, a Barbie Doll and a carrot.
Fairly simple game, each player takes a letter of the alphabet and fills in the blanks with that letter. For example:
- A, my name is Angie, my husband's name is Aaron, we live in Alabama, where I am an artist and he is an apple farmer. We have two children, Anna and Allie. And so on ...
For this game, someone needs to track what is found. You can play against each other, in teams or all together. You try to find all the different states on the plates. If you are competing, the first person (or team) who "calls" the tag gets to claim it. Alphabet Sign Recommended for ages 4+
For this game, you just look for the letters A-Z on signs. This game can also be played together or you can compete. You simply go through the alphabet with the road signs you find, looking for A, then B, and so on on various signs until you finish the alphabet.
