Road Trip Games for the Kids


As anyone who has traveled with children before can tell you, kids get antsy on the road, don’t have the patience for longer trips, and can make some pretty poor travel mates if they get bored. Road trip games can help alleviate boredom and keep the kids from fighting, which any parent will appreciate. The next time you hit the road with your kids in your RV, try out one or more of these classic road trip games to stave off your kid’s boredom.

Radio Game

Turn the radio off. Have each player choose a word. Turn the radio on. Listen carefully for your words. When you hear word – if you are the first person to hear your word – you are the winner.

The Question Game

Take turns asking questions just to see what kind of answers your family comes up with. For example, ask what three things would you take with you if you had to spend a year on a deserted island, ask who a person’s heroes are and why, if you had the chance to eat lunch with a famous person, who would the person choose?

Word Sequence

Choose a topic. It can be any topic from animals to fruit to places. Have one person start with anything in that category. The next person has to name something in that category that starts with the last letter of the named item. For example, if the first person chooses “rabbit,” the next person has to think of an animal that starts with a ‘T.’ You can’t use the same word twice unless the children are very young, in which case, they can have that handicap. They can also have three “passes” before getting dropped from the game.

The Rhyming Game

Have a person pick a word. The next person has to say a word that rhymes with the first person’s word. The game is played until a person cannot think of a rhyming word. You can give younger players hints.
