Just a few weeks ago, my family attempted our very first road trip. In the past, we have always flown with Little Man. I was a bit nervous about taking a lengthy trip in the car!
Thankfully, with a few tricks up my sleeve, we all survived the long 10 hours together in the car! I have many happy memories of summer road trips with my own family growing up. Every summer, my family would make a looooooooooong trek across the country to Utah for family reunions. That meant packing up in a small station wagon with these monkeys:
Living in the car for 2 days might have been painful. Luckily the homemade root beer, family baseball games, and toasty camp fires made it all worthwhile once we got there.
Surprisingly, road trips are now one of my favorite memories.
My Mom was a genius! She kept us entertained in the car with prizes to unwrap, vacation journals to write in, and (my personal favorite!) games to play. Our favorite game to play was Road Trip Bingo! My siblings and I searched for windmills, license plates, birds on phone wires, etc. It was sibling rivalry at its best!
Now that I am a Mom myself, I am already anticipating that ominous question, “Are we there yet?”
So I created a few printables to help entertain our kiddos for those long summer road trips!
In this version of the game, kids can search for different colored cars. You can download the Road Trip Bingo for colored cars here.
I hope this helps make your summer road trips a little bit funner!
