Fun Road Trip Activities!

Last week we discussed why taking road trips in 2019 is good for your health. This week we are going to give you tips on how to entertain your family while taking your next road trip. Keeping your kids busy while driving can be challenging but Spieler's Inc has a few ways to have fun while traveling. Taking a trip with the family should be a fun time spent together, making memories to last a lifetime.  Sometimes the children (and adults!) need a little entertainment when making a long trek down the highway. Put those digital devices away because your trusted car dealer in Mid-MO is here to share some fun road trip activities the entire family can enjoy.

The License Plate Game

As you drive down the road, everyone in the car looks for license plates from different states. The goal is to spot vehicles from all 50 states, although Alaska and Hawaii are rare finds!


This classic game will keep 2 members of your road trip entertained for a while. Two players are assigned an X or an O; the two alternate placing their symbol, and then the player with 3 in a row wins. Make a tournament with all passengers or play best of 5 to extend the game.

20 Questions

In the popular road trip game, 20 Questions, the first player mentally chooses an answer; then all participants try to narrow down the answer by asking questions. If the carload gets to the twentieth question without figuring out the answer, the answer is revealed.

I Spy

Most people are familiar with I Spy. This is a fun way to get everyone on your road trip involved. The first player starts off with, “I spy with my little eye, something (color/shape)”. The person who spots the correct item wins and is now the one who chooses an object.

The Alphabet Game

Similar to I Spy, The Alphabet Game can be played by anyone in the car. Players look for any object
outside the vehicle that has letters. The trick to the game is to go in order through the alphabet as you pass signs, buildings, or any object with words. Be warned, this game can be pretty dry if there are few signs along the road you travel.

Spot The Car

Another fun twist to I Spy, a player starts the game by selecting a car make and model and everyone tries to spot that type of vehicle. The first person to spot the right car gets to pick the next type to find.

The Singing Game

If your group is into music, this is the game for you! When a song comes on and everyone is singing along, randomly mute the radio. The last person still accurately singing the lyrics is the winner.

I’m Going on a Picnic

Memory games are a great way to spend time on a road trip. The first participant starts with, “I’m going on a picnic and I’m bringing….(something that starts with an A). The next person will start the phrase over and add an item that starts with the better B. The goal is to continue through the entire alphabet. The player who is stumped when remembering the full list of items to bring on a picnic loses.

Enjoy some of these games on your next road trip with the family. Before you head out, bring your vehicle by Spieler’s Inc. to get checked over to ensure everything is functioning properly. The best car dealer in Mid MO is here to help you make your road trip a success. With safety and entertainment checked off your list, you are ready to roll out on your next adventure with the family!
