While we embarked on our month long road trip this summer with four little boys in the car with us it easy to see we would need some road trip games to play to pass the time. This post is here to give you fund road trip games that you can enjoy with your family on your next trip.
Road Trip Games

On the Road Scavenger Hunt
One of our favorite games we played while we were on the road was our On the Road Scavenger Hunt! We had started with a very basic scavenger hunt that had only about 20 items to find. We quickly blew threw the list and started writing down our own interesting things we found along our route that would be easy enough that anyone could find but still fun things to look for while you travel. It was also really hard for my little ones to remember what they were looking for and had to keep asking for reminders of what was on our list. To make it simpler, we thought it would be easier to have fun hunting for items if they were broken into simple groups. Then, I just told my kids to look for animals or signs and tell me what they saw and I would mark off the right one from the list.
This On the Road Scavenger Hunt includes over 80 things to look for broken down into five simple categories including: General, Signs, Scenery, Vehicles and Animals. Click on the image or the link below and it will open up the PDF version of the scavenger hunt and you can save or print it!
