We all know how quickly the excitement of a road trip can turn into “Are we there yet?” from the backseat. We’ve got the perfect solution – family road trip games!
When packing for a road trip, don’t just pack snacks and maps, remember to pack the fun too. Having family games for a road trip helps to pass the time and keep everyone entertained.
Don’t forget about the shared moments and creating memories during the family road trip. You’re not just travelling from point A to B, you’re also building connections and stimulating creativity.
There are a couple of things you’ll want to consider when picking the perfect road trip games. You’ll want to think about the age of your kiddos, how many people are playing, and whether or not the game is going to distract the driver.
It’s also essential to choose games that are compact and don’t take up too much space. Think along the lines of card games, compact board games, or travel-friendly games designed especially for on the go fun.
Games like ‘Uno’, ‘Spot It!’, or ‘Travel Scrabble’ can be a hit. They’re small, lightweight, and pack a whole lot of fun! Plus, they can be easily tucked away when it’s time to hit the road again. So, remember, size matters when it comes to road trip games!
Be sure to grab the Road Trip Packing List that includes items for comfort, organization, eating, and first aid to make the family vacation a success. You’ll also receive a Road Trip Itinerary to plan the day-to-day schedule of the trip!
