  • We found, in a second hand bookstore, a game called Are We There Yet, which provided hours and hours of fun...

  • Eye Spy, Road Trip Bingo, License plate game, ABC game, 20 questions

    Not that I really like any of them but they keep the boy occupied.

  • We never play games in the car... we listen to music and stories, the kids color, read books and play with little toys...

    We LOVE to listen to Bill Harley on road trips. He has some great stories and songs.

  • Slug bug, I Spy, naming things that begin with the letters of the alphabet. Oh, and my mom taught us kids pig Latin on one road trip I remember from when I was growing up.

  • Not mine, but my kids favorite is "next one to see a __________" (blue semi, red car, tractor, flashing light, etc) . Winner picks the next thing to look for. If we're really desperate or kids are being really good they also get a single candy (m&m, skittle, jelly bean, etc) when they win.
