Family road trips can be exciting, but they can also lead to a barrage of are we there yet if you’re traveling with children. Kids will be kids, but it’s enough to drive you crazy at times. I don’t know about your children, but anything over an hour seems to be more than my grandchildren can bear. That is probably typical of most children to be honest. To make things interesting, I created a series of kid’s road trip games. In particular, Travel Scavenger Hunts and word search puzzles.
Kid’s road trips games are perfect. Playing them allows us time to unplug and enjoy the beauty surrounding us. Additionally, road trips are a great way for children to observe the country side and what’s happenings on the interstate and highway. Observations can lead to questions and interesting conversations with children. Road trips can be a great way to bond. Most importantly, you can make the trip educational and also memorable for everyone.
For this particular road trip game, children will love looking out the window in search of items on the paper. We come across most of them during our trips, and we have so much fun trying to find the items. If we find all of them all before we reach our destination we have other games to play. My grandson does word search puzzles, hidden objects or we do another Scavenger Hunt in the series. I don’t know who has the most fun me or the kids.
Purchase a few clip boards and pencil or pens before you hit the road. Be sure to print out several copies of the games. I like to print the games on stock card. It’s heavier than regular copy paper and that makes it easier to use without tearing. You can also have the games laminated for a few dollars. If you like our Scavenger Hunts please share and feel free to print for your use. Stay tuned for other printables in my Road Trip series. You can download the kid’s road trip games here.
