Long road trips feel even longer when kids constantly ask “are we there yet?” Then they are ordering a snack, then they need to pee, then they fight over trivial things …

The key is to keep them busy, which is why some fun car games for kids are a must. Play the game to keep them engaged, and before you know it, you’re at your destination!

Try these 3 super fun car games for kids that will keep them busy on road trips!

Family fairy tale

This is a fun way to pass the time and get those creative juices flowing. One person begins the story with “Once upon a time …” and then completes the sentence. Have everyone in the car continue the story however they want using one sentence each in turn. You can finish it when everyone has had 3 turns. You can set a timer or not.

Before we begin, it would be great to record the game, ask someone to transcribe it later, and you will have your own family fairy tale!

Hypothetical questions

This is a good game that will allow you to improve your children. Ask hypothetical questions and see how your children will answer. Allow everyone to have a turn (including you, the parents!) Ask and answer the questions.

Here are some questions you can ask:

  • If you could have a super power, what would you choose and why?

  • If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?

  • If you could eat one food for a week, what would it be?

  • If you could put wings on any animal, what would it be?

  • If you could be invisible for a day, what would you do and where would you go?

The name game

Exercise those brain cells and play this fun game! Provide a letter and a category (for example, letter P, animals) and everyone takes turns naming something in that category. Set a timer, and anyone who can’t say an entry when the time is up will be eliminated from the round. You can test categories like food, cities, cartoon characters, etc.

Be sure to play games to keep the little ones engaged. Have a lot of fun and laugh with these simple but fun car games for kids. You will surely enjoy them too!
