The Best Road Trip Games for Kids
My kids love Mad Libs, and this one is perfect for a family vacation. Remember to bring some pens or pencils with you.
This pack includes 54 scavenger hunt cards, and is good for kids ages 7 and up.
This game goes beyond the scavenger hunt. For instance, one of the challenges is to get someone in the car next to you to wave back at you. It’s best for slightly older kids.
I bought my kids these packs for a road trip, and they love them. The kits include activity sheets, dry-erase crayons, and a sharpener, and they would also be great for a plane trip.
