Road Trip Games
Times are hard-hitting for travelers. If you’re planning a vacation or taking off for a trip around the world, We’ve Got Some Travel Game Ideas for you to spend time joyously.
International travel is gradually reopening. However, regulations are constantly changing, so your best chance for a quick vacation could be to take a road trip to a UK staycation. So long as you can keep your kids occupied during the drive there or on any subsequent walks or treks, it’ll be just as exhilarating. Seven games to keep children occupied long enough to avoid the dreaded “Are we there yet?” question are provided here.

1. The Number Plate Game
There is no harm in keeping an eye out for presidential motorcades or vanity plates. You will require a couple of pads of notebook paper and a few writing implements. All you need to keep your kids occupied is to ask them to search and note down number plates from other countries or regions of the United Kingdom.
The winner is the individual who obtains the most plates written down on paper (no cheating!). The stakes can be raised even further by awarding two points for correctly identifying the country’s capital city or state where the sighting occurred and three points for identifying diplomatic plates. That’s a surefire win right there.
2. Punch buggy
In your opinion, the most challenging part of traveling with children is figuring out how to install car seats and which apps to use on an iPad.
Keeping a child’s mind busy and sharp when on a lengthy road trip can be the most challenging endeavor, and this next game does just that. When they see a VW Beetle, players give their fellow passengers a small love tap (but don’t let them use too much strength). The origins of this game can be traced back to a Volkswagen marketing effort in the 1960s.
3. The “I Spy” Road Trip Game
There’s no such thing as too young or too old to play I Spy on a road trip; it doesn’t matter if you’re traveling with a baby, a toddler, or an adolescent.
Keeping everyone amused is the most critical part of the trip. For a better chance of success, avoid the more conventional alternatives, such as the words “road” and “clouds” and “sky.” Instead, use unexpected options, such as the landscape features “glacier” “valley,” and “pasture.” If you’re going on a road trip, this is a fun game to play in the back seat of your car. Just remember to keep the object in sight at all times while you’re doing your turn.
4. Would You Rather?
How about putting your hand in a bowl of eels or dancing naked while bugs rain down on you? It’s hard to choose between these two options, but you have to progress in this travel simulation game. Adults and children alike will enjoy this game. Each of us has a turn picking.
5. Hot Seat
It is a more mature game, but it’s still a lot of fun. In the ‘hot seat,’ everyone in the automobile is given five questions to answer by their fellow passengers.
There is usually a veto option, but you can see how out of hand this game could go. Avoid giving an answer that annoys fellow travelers and creates an awkward atmosphere for the next four hours.
6. Hold Your Breath
As you make your way down the tunnel, your children’s constant chatting and giggling may leave you in need of some alone time. If you want to do two things at once, have them hold their breath until they see a specific color automobile or until the end of the next road tunnel, roundabout, or other landmarks.
It’s a race to see who can hold on for the longest amount of time. The game must be put on hold if you get into a traffic jam.
7. The Memory Game
Some call it the Picnic Game, while others call it the Casserole Game, but the basic premise is the same no matter what name you call it. One person along for the ride says, “I’m going out on a picnic, and I’m bringing…” adding whatever comes to mind. For the story to continue, the following player must remember that item and add something new. You’ll be kicked out the moment you get a fact wrong.
