Fun Games to Play With Your Family on Road Trips

Although going on a road trip can sure be thrilling, sitting in a car for hours on end can become tedious, especially for younger children. Fortunately, with some creativity, you can keep your family entertained. Here are some fun games to play with your family in order to keep road trips pleasant.

Riff Off

Each person takes a turn to look at the license plate of another car and try to make a word using the letters in the license plate. For example, if the license plate is FYR43, you could say “foyer”. In addition to being fun, this game tests your critical thinking.

Radio Roulette

Turn on the radio and flip to a new station. As a new song plays, everyone has to guess the name of the song and the artist. Each right guess is worth one point. The first person to 15 points wins.

Fortunately, Unfortunately

In this game, one person starts by making a statement starting with the word “fortunately”. For example, “Fortunately, I remembered to pack sandwiches for the trip.” The next person then starts a follow-up statement with unfortunately. For example, “Unfortunately, I forgot to put meat on the sandwiches.” This is another fun way of testing everyone’s creativity.
