I’ve been thinking about vacation…and thinking about how we no longer have our big van for the kids to spread out and have some space for long drives anymore. I miss those days of long and short trips as we played fun car travel games while we traveled along!
Teens don’t really want to do much except sleep and listen to music in the car or play silly word games..but I was thinking about when they were younger..how they needed a little more entertainment..I mean a road trip to little’s is an hour ride to Grammies house! LOL
So I thought it would be fun to do a little round up of 10 Printable Car Travel Games and Ideas for Kids for you to enjoy from these awesome creative Bloggers and Websites!
Ok I LOVE this idea from Glue Sticks Blog…it’s a road trip binder for kids! So creative! Thank you!!
Here is some printable fun to put into the binder!
This first one is for the older crew from I Heart Organizing! I love that each plate is visual so kids can look fast as cars go by.
What trip would be complete without a game of Road Trip Bingo!? This cute Road trip Bingo is by Oopsey Daisy but featured over at Thirty Handmade Days..Thank You!
Another Amazingly awesome printable idea for teaching patience and making a game of it..with a prize at the end! Yay! Thank you Design Mom!
