Fun Family Road Trip Games
A lot of families make long road trips around the holiday season. Especially for larger families, or families with younger kids, road trips can be very taxing mentally. Kids very easily lose patience on road trips, but there are plenty of ways for parents to help the time pass. One of the best ways is to play some road games during the ride. Here are some fun family road trip games.
This is one of the easiest and most fun games to play on the road. The rules of the game, for those that are unfamiliar, are incredibly simple: one person thinks of something, and the other people in the car have 20 questions to figure out what it is. The great thing about this game is that it can be adjusted to fit the skill level of anyone in the car.
The Alphabet Game
Another classic road trip game, the alphabet game is a fantastic way to get everyone in the car thinking. Another very simple game, you simply have to find a word on a billboard or road sign that starts with a certain letter of the alphabet, going in order.
Name That Tune
This is the perfect game for those that also love listening to music on long road trips. You can either simply have the radio on, or have a designated person deciding the songs, while the rest of the passengers in the car try to figure out the name of the song.
Cows on My Side
This is another classic road trip game that anyone can play. When you see a cow on the side of the road that your seat is on, you yell out, “cow on my side!” This gets you a point, and whichever side of the car has more points by the end of the trip wins the game.
