If you’re headed out on a road trip with kids, you are going to need some road trip activities to keep them busy! We take road trips often, so I know a thing or two about the best road trip activities for kids and teens.
My antidote to car sickness from watching the DVD player is Audiobooks! I have also found it to be one of those road trip activities toddlers and teens love too! Be sure to download a few of your kids' favorites before the trip and test them so they are ready to go in the car.
If you are traveling in the USA, this license plate game is a fun one to keep kids busy. You could easily make a license plate game printable at home. It is a great thing to do on long car rides with kids!
One of our favorite road trip activities for toddlers are magnetic puzzles! Better than regular puzzles, their magnet side helps keep them in place (so they don't fall a part in the car).
One of our favorite things to pack in a kids' carry bag for both road trips and planes is a sketchbook and pencils. Our kids often use it to draw things they see and experience on the trip. They are also great to bring to dinner to offer a screen-free alternative in a restaurant.
I recently created my own product that makes a great road trip activity for kids! It's a 45-page color printable and includes word searches, road trip bingo, crosswords, a travel journal, road trip games for kids to play in the car, and much more.
