5 of the Best Travel Games to Keep Kids Entertained

Traveling with kids? There's no need to be afraid! Here are 5 of the best travel games guaranteed to keep your kids entertained for hours.

 Bored kids in a car.

We've all been there.

Not even an hour into a long car ride, and the shuffling begins. Then somebody wants to stop and stretch their legs. Somebody else starts playing with the radio presets, and, before you know it, everything gets put on hold. 

You need to nip this in the bud.

You need a secret weapon, to help you in the fight to take back your road trips. 

You need games, to keep your children engaged.

Join us, today, as we look at five of the best travel games around, to improve your next road trip.

Travel Games: Take Charge Of Your Next Road Trip

Any road trip is only as good as the mood your kids are in.

Keep up their spirits with this list of five great car games you can play on your next long-distance car ride. 

I Spy 

There's a reason certain games are classics. And I Spy is a true classic, for all the best reasons. 

Players call out hints about things they spot, on the road, using just the first letter or colour of the things. 

The License Plate Game

When you're a kid, there's no greater feeling than getting the most in a game. 

The most of what? It doesn't matter.

Kids write down the names of each state, as they spot the license plate from that state. The goal is to get all 50 states by the end of the trip.

20 Questions

Brain games are a fantastic choice for a long road trip because they keep everybody engaged.

20 Questionsis easy enough to hit this mark, every time. One person comes up with a word, in a certain category. These can include people, animals, foods, movies, and books. They keep this a secret and give the other players 20 yes-or-no guesses with which to figure it out.


This is an easy one. Prepare a three-by-three bingo grid, on a sheet of paper, before leaving on your trip. Each person playing gets a sheet and a marker. 

As you drive, players cross off things like "Cow" or "Billboard". The first person to cross off three in a straight line wins!

I'm Going On A Picnic

There are variations on this game, but the concept is always the same.

Players start by saying "I'm going on a picnic, and I'm bringing...".

The first player starts with "A". "Apples", "ants", "avocados" are all options for things to bring, at this point. The next person starts the same way, says the first person's "A" word, then adds a "B" word. 

Each consecutive person has to remember all of the words that came before them, and add the next word, alphabetically. The winner is the last person who can get through all of the words without forgetting any.
