Fun Car Games for Your Summer Road Trip
Summer is approaching and this year many people will be opting for a chill summer road trip instead of boarding a plane. If you’re going to spend some quality time in your car, you’ll want to have some fun ideas to keep yourself and your passengers entertained.
Summer Road Trip Games
Here are some fun car games for your summer road trip:
This is a classic road trip game and is super easy to play. To get started, one person thinks of something, it can be a person, place or thing. Then, the others in the car take turns asking questions to see if they can decipher what the first person is thinking about. The car gets up to 20 questions to guess correctly, and the person that makes the correct guess is next.
Name that song
This is a fun game for travelers that enjoy music. The person who’s up picks a song lyric, but only says the lyric in a straight voice. Then others in the car need to figure out the song. Whoever guesses correctly gets to pick next. For added fun, you could play the song after each round and all sing-along!
The alphabet game – categories
Select a category such as animals, food or movies. Then go through the alphabet from “A” to “Z” with each person naming something of that category that starts with that letter. For example, if you did food with four people in the car you may start with apple, almonds, avocado and asparagus. Then, you would move on to “B” with each person naming another food item that starts with that next letter.
Cows on my side
The idea is to spot the cows first. If you see cows on your side of the vehicle, yell out, “Cows on my side!” For each time you spot cows first, you get a point. If you see cows on the other side of the vehicle before your fellow passengers do, yell out, “Cows on your side!” For each time you spot cows on their side of the vehicle before they do, they lose a point.
The quiet game
If you’re traveling with kids, sometimes you just need a little quiet time. The quiet game is a great way to catch your breath. The idea is whoever can be quiet(not talk) for the longest wins. Some kids can see through this, especially older kids, so it might not hurt to provide an incentive to the winner such as being able to pick what you have for dinner that night or getting an extra 30 minutes of technology time.
Hit the road
