Fun Games to Play on a Family Road Trip

Family in front of the car for a road trip

A cross-country trip in the family car is an opportunity to create many wonderful memories with your loved ones. To keep everyone entertained on the journey, here are some fun games to play on a family road trip.

I Spy

This is a classic game that nearly everyone can play. The person spying starts with, “I spy with my little eye, something…” and states the color or texture of something they can see. Just be sure to state that only objects in the car count, since the stuff you’ll be driving by won’t be there soon! Whoever guesses the correct object gets to spy something new.

License Plate Game

School-age children will love this game of spotting license plates from all over the country. Before heading out on your trip, create customized sheets with each state on them so the kids can color in the state of the license plate they find. The first one to call out the state gets to color in the state, and the person with the most states colored in at the end wins.

20 Questions

There are many variants of this game, but it starts out with one person thinking of a person, place, or thing. The other passengers then get to ask up to 20 yes or no questions to try and figure out what that thing is. Whoever guesses correctly gets to think of their own thing to be questioned about.

These are just a few fun games to try with your family on your next road trip. Before heading out, stop by and see us at Mike Raisor Auto Group to make sure your car is in top shape (and maybe we’ll share some other fun games to play).
