Whether you’re traveling to a relative’s home for the holidays or are enjoying a vacation, road trips are a great way to make memories. But when you are traveling with small children, they can also be a very frustrating experience. At Dudley DeBosier, we know how easily small children get bored or distracted, which is why we’ve put together this guide to help parents keep their kids entertained on long car trips so they can stay safe when navigating traffic-packed roads.
We recommend adding these items to your list when packing up
the car for your trip.
These methods have been tested and approved by parents in the Dudley DeBosier team.
When you don’t have toys or activity books, or when your
kids lose interest, these games can save the day.
One player thinks up a person, animal, or object, but does
not tell the other players what it is. The other players have to try to guess
what it is, but they can only ask yes-or-no questions, such as “Is it bigger
than the car?”, “Is it yellow?”, and so on. The goal is to try to guess what
the mystery object is within 20 questions.
Guess the Word
One player traces a short word on a body part of the person
sitting next to them, such as on an arm, using only their finger, and that
player must guess what the word is.
The Alphabet Game
Each player competes to find every letter of the alphabet
using only road signs and billboards. However, they must find the letters in
order. For example, a player can’t look for the letter ”b” until they’ve found
the letter ”a”. Players looking for the
same letter also cannot use the same sign. For example, if both players need
the letter “x”, and both see a sign that says “exit”, only the player who saw
the sign first can move onto the next letter, while the other player must wait
for another “x”. The first player to spot every letter of the alphabet wins.
License Plate Abbreviations
Players use their imagination to come up with ideas of what the
random letters on license plates they pass stand for. For example, a license
plate that has “LEP” on it might stand for “Let’s eat pizza”. Whichever player
comes up with the silliest or best answer wins.
Players agree on a category (ex: food, animals, cartoon
characters, etc.) and then take turns coming up with one answer for each letter
of the alphabet that fits that category. For example, if the category is
animals, answers might be antelope, baboon, cat, and so on.
The Picnic Game
Players take turns describing what food items they are
bringing to a picnic, with each player adding one additional item. Each item
must start with the next letter of the alphabet. The goal is to remember the
entire list, starting from the first item, until you reach the end of the
alphabet. For example, the first player must remember “apples”, the second
player must remember “apples and bananas”, the third player must remember
“apples, bananas, and cake”, and so on.
A, My Name is Anne
Players take turns moving through the alphabet and filling
in the phrases, “My name is”, “I come from”, and “I have a suitcase full of”
with words that start with that each letter of the alphabet. For example, the
first player might say, “My name is Arnold, I come from Alaska, and I have a
suitcase full of apples,” while the second player might say, “My name is Beth,
I come from Brazil, and I have a suitcase full of bananas.”
Players take turns telling a story, one sentence at a time
and one sentence per person until every player has had a turn. Then it’s the
first player’s turn again. Players have to use their imagination when other
players start to steer the story in new directions.
The Counting Game
The first player starts the game by saying “one,” and then
another player must say “two” and another “three” and so on until they reach
twenty. However, players can respond in any order but if two players respond at
the same time, the game must start over at one. The game also starts over if
more than five seconds go by without anyone responding.
