Keeping your kids occupied in a car for a long road trip can be difficult, especially because there’s not a lot to do in the car. Fortunately for drivers, kids can be easily distracted with a fun family game. Kids both young and old enjoy some fun road trip games, and you may end up enjoying yourself too! Lewis Nissan has you covered with some fun road trip games we’re sure the whole family will enjoy!
The Theme Song Game
Playing the theme song game is as easy as humming the tune to a TV show. Other passengers in the car then try to guess the show. The first person to guess correctly gets to hum the next theme song! You can set a time limit on it or play until someone reaches a certain number correctly.
The License Plate Game
It seems as though everyone has played this classic game. As you’re traveling along, write down the name of each state as you spot it. The goal of the game is to find all 50 states and maybe even some Canadian provinces too. You can find fun printable versions online where kids can cross them off or if they’re learning their geography we recommend going to the map version where they can write the state name down once it has been spotted!
Another one of our favorites is the classic game of telephone. This is when you have one person start with a story, phrase, sentence, etc and they whisper it to the next person. That person is then responsible for repeating what they heard word for word. This keeps going until it gets to the last person where that person has to say out loud what they heard. This is sure to get the whole car laughing as the end result is usually not what it was when they started.
Those are some of our favorite road trip games! Make sure you stop by Lewis Nissan before you head out on your road trip to make sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape!
