Car Games to Play on Your Moving Road Trip
based on 1 visitor(s)
|If you're moving long distance, you may have a long road trip to your new home in your future. If you are travelling with children, keeping their minds occupied with car games is a good way to avoid boredom and restlessness. Check out our list of some of the most popular and entertaining car games to play with your kids on your moving day road trip!
This simple game is perfect for young children because the rules and concept are easy to follow. One person sees something outside the car window, and says "I spy with my little eye, something..." and offers a clue, such as, "something tall", or "something green". Then each other player takes turns guessing the item, with the winner becoming the next spy.
Another famous car trip staple, 20 questions is possibly the most basic and easy to play game on the list. One player thinks of a person, place or thing, and the remainder of the players take turns asking yes or no questions about the mystery item to gain more information. The first player to guess correctly wins, and becomes "it" -- however, if no one guesses correctly after each player asks 20 questions, Player One is "it" for another round.
I'm Going on a Picnic
A game that teaches alphabet and memory skills, I'm Going on a Picnic is best suited for kids five and up. The first player starts by reciting the following: “I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing...” followed by something an item that begins with the letter A, such as apricots. The next player repeats what the first person said, but adds an item that begins with the letter B, and so on with the rest of the alphabet. To make the game more interesting, encourage players to choose silly items you would not normally take on a picnic, rather than just sticking to food. Once a player fumbles and forgets an item while reciting the list, he or she is out. The last remaining player wins.
Road trip bingo
This bingo/scavenger hunt hybrid will keep your children entertained and occupied for hours! Print out unique bingo cards prior to your trip and hand them out to your children. Each square in the grid will contain the name of a common item seen during a road trip--such as a farmhouse, a truck, or a billboard. Every time a player sees an item on his card, he or she marks off the square, and the first player to cover all the squares in a straight line wins.
