Car trips

We are anticipating a car trip with our four kiddos.  We will be driving roughly 16-18 hours one way to visit friends in Ohio.  With that said I am thinking we need to come up with some ideas of what to have our kiddos do while we are on the road.

Here are some of my thoughts.

~ Alphabet Game (finding each letter of the alphabet on signs along the road)
~ License Plate Game (finding license plates from across the US and writing them down to see how many we can find)
~ box with paper, crayons and pencils (using a pizza box works really well because you have storage and a hard surface to write on.  You can even tether the pencil/crayons with a string so that they don't get dropped.)
~ Travel Scavenger Hunt (find different objects, locations, buildings along the way)

What other games can you think of that will help pass the time on a long car ride?

  1. We used to live in Dallas and drove back and forth to Columbus at Christmas and over summer break. We loved "A my name is Alice...." If you don't know it, it goes "A my name is (insert male or female A name, depending on who's playing), my wife/husband's name is (insert A name). We live in/on (A city/state/country/planet), and we sell (A item)!" A my name is Abby, my husband's name is Arnold. We live in Albuquerque, and we sell apricots! Then the next person does B, and so on. :)
