Road Trip Games
Every summer, my family likes to go on long road trips to visit friends and relatives, and to see new places. To pass the time, I often bring along movies or games, but what about when those get boring? I like to have some backup activities planned just in case. One of the games my family likes to play is the alphabet game. Everyone has to find the letters of the alphabet, in order, on signs and billboards on the highway. When you see a letter, you shout it out, along with the word containing it, and whoever finishes the alphabet first wins.
We also love to play the license plate game, where everyone in the car has a blank map and tries to spot license plates from as many states as possible. A scavenger hunt is also fun, with a list of items in categories such as animals, people, vehicles and landscapes. Each person who completes a category gets a treat at the next stop.
