Are we there yet? It’s a question that we as parents have heard a million times. Truthfully, it’s a question we probably asked our parents a million times as well. I know I did.
Kids loved to be engaged in activities, like these Fun Travel Games for Kids. Since we now live in a world that is so dependent on technology, I think it’s important to turn off the electronic devices now and then and participate in some good old-fashioned games and activities.
Car rides for a child, no matter how long or short, can be boring. Keeping your kids occupied during the journey will make the time spent in the car go so much faster. It’s also a great way to spend quality time together.

Here are five Fun Travel Games for kids. You can do these car activities together as a family while riding in the car.
I Spy: One person is the spy and looks for an object. It’s described by “I spy with my eye, something that’s green and shaped like a rectangle.” The others have to guess what the object is. Whoever guesses, get to by the “spy” next. The game continues until everyone gets a turn.
Car Bingo: Get creative and make a travel bingo board on your computer. Make sure you make a few different boards so everyone receives a different board. Print out and take on your trip. Give everyone (except the driver) a crayon or marker to mark off his or her bingo squares when they find one of the objects.
The License Plate Game: Try to spot as many different license plates from the 50 states as you can. You can either do just a friendly let see how many or turn it into a competition to see who can spot the most.
Storytelling: One person starts off a story and each person adds a sentence to the story. Make sure everyone gets at least 3 turns to make the story more interesting. This can get really funny.
Grocery Store: (A great memory game). The first person starts with the letter A and says I am going to the grocery store to buy (something that starts with the letter A.), such as artichokes. The next person says, ” I am going to the grocery store to buy artichokes and (something that starts with the letter B), like bananas.
The game continues with each letter of the alphabet. If a person cannot remember one of the items, then he or she is out. Go easy on the younger kids and give them a few hints if needed. It’s fun to see how far they can make it through the alphabet.
