When the warm spring weather is here to stay a while, we usually plan a few road trips. My son has autism, so we cannot fly with him, so we stick to vacation spots we can drive to. But, a road trip with kids is never easy. When they were younger, we had a lot of hair pulling, eyebrow raising and “are we there yet” scenarios. Thankfully, they are older, so they are much better. What we have experiences is how bored they can get. If you are hitting the road with your kids, try one of these 5 ways to entertain the kids without losing your mind! but it doesn’t have to be that bad. You can keep your sanity on a road trip with kids.
5 Ways to Entertain Kids on a Road Trip:
- Play Road Trip Bingo – create Bingo boards with all 50 states on the board, peek at all license plates on cars you pass during the road trip. Be the first to match the most states and win!
- Play Card Games – bring a card game along for the ride, such as CLASSIC WATERWORKS™, a classic 70’s game and be the first player to complete a pipeline from the valve spout.
- Play Eye Spy – have a fast paced game of eye spy as you travel along on your road trip, simply take turns “spying” something that is visible to all passengers in the car, the person who guesses correctly takes the next turn at being the “spy”.
- Make Silly Names – check out the car in front of you or beside you, using the first letter found on that license plate come up with the silliness name you can think of using that letter.
- Play Travel Board Games – bring Scrabble® To Go™ along so that the kids can use their thinking caps while having fun and with the to go version, no pieces will get lost. Another favorite game is Classic Waterworks™ from Winning Moves. The kids love to play this card game in the hotel room.
