Are you going to be traveling with kids soon? Don’t want to deal with the dreaded, “Are we there yet?” questions? Travel prepared! Kids love to play games, especially if mom or dad joins in! There are many games to play in the car. You may know the ABC game, who ever sees every letter in the alphabet first wins! You can find a letter anywhere, license plates, billboards, or even street signs. It is a lot of fun!
The last time I was traveling with kids…
We went on vacation to see my family in my hometown. It is a very long drive. The kids had plenty to do though. I got a couple of traveling games, a deck of cards, some toys cars and I brought the kindle with us. It has learning games, books and Netflix on it.
We had a great trip, it would have been better if we did not have to stop once an hour to go pee. My boys apparently just could not hold it!
One of my favorite games to play while traveling with kids, is Mad Libs (find it in the list below #5). The kids love them too, and we get into laughing fits. They can get really silly. You will need a child that is able to write or if you have another adult riding with you that would work too! I like playing games, because it is a great way to bond and learn more about each other!
Here is my list of 25 boredom busters for the road:
1. Spot It! on the Road
2. License Plate Game
3. Interstate Highway Backseat Bingo
4. National Geographic Kids Ultimate U.S. Road Trip Atlas: Maps, Games, Activities, and More for Hours of Backseat Fun
5. Mad Libs on the Road
6. Travel Scavenger Hunt For Kids Card Game
7. Rand McNally Are We There Yet?
8. Rand McNally Kids’ Road Atlas
9. Rubberneckers: Everyone’s Favorite Travel Game
23. All-New Kindle Paperwhite, 6″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers
24. Bicycle Poker Size Standard Index Playing Cards (Blue or Red)
25. Mattel Hot Wheels 1999 1:64 Scale Green Radar Ranger Die Cast Car Collector #1101
I really hope that you can find some fun things to do while you are on your way to your destination. I like to remind my boys that looking out the window is cool too. There is a whole world out there to see! That was my favorite thing to do when I was a kid and traveling. Of course we did not have portable screens back then. I was lucky if I had a portable cassette player! Hah!
