//Family road trip games :: A top 5 list from theCityMoms

Summer road trip fever has hit our CityMoms members: They’re talking car rides to Florida, Hilton Head, Washington DC and even California this year {godspeed Vanessa D!}. When books have become a bore and tablet time has worn down yours AND the kids’ attention spans, it helps to have a few games at the ready.

So theCityMoms partnered with Fletcher Chrysler of Franklin, Indiana on a list of 5 fun family road trip games:

What are some other games to add to spice up your family road trip?

  • I SPY {a classic!}
  • The License Plate Game: Keep a running list of all the different license plates you find on the road. Bonus for Canadian provinces or other country plates!
  • 20 Questions: Have one player select a person, place or thing. Other players can then use up to 20 questions total to guess the answer.
  • Car Bingo: Create easy travel bingo cards at home for kids to cross off on the road. {Think church, tractor, horse, yellow sign, etc.}
  • Storytime: Players create a story together. Take turns with each player adding one sentence to the story at a time. End when the story feels complete OR the car tires of the game.
  • Two truths and one lie: Have one player begin by telling 3 sentences – two of which are true and one which is a lie. Other participants must guess which one is the lie. {A fun way to be creative together!}

What is your family’s favorite road trip game? Pop over to theCityMoms Facebook page and tell us.
