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, whoever sees every letter in the alphabet first wins! You can find a letter anywhere, license plates, billboards, or even street signs. It’s a lot of fun!

The Last Time I Was Traveling With Kids…

We went on vacation to see my family in my hometown. It’s a very long drive. The kids had plenty to do though. I got a couple of traveling games, a deck of cards, some toy cars and I brought the kindle with us. It has learning games, books and Netflix on it.

We had a great trip, it would’ve been better if we didn’t have to stop once an hour to go pee. My boys apparently just couldn’t 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!

There’s 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!
