Travel Games and Printables

For our family, school is out for the summer!  We have many fun things planned to play, experiment with, and explore in our own neighborhood.  However, we will also be spending some time on the road in route to our favorite vacation destinations. Here are some ideas we have gathered for entertaining excited young travelers.

Serving Pink Lemonade created several wipe off car games.

A girl and a glue gun explains how to make magnetic silly faces, which would be fun for back seat entertainment across the miles.

A girl and a glue gun also has a popular post about putting together a travel binder I Spy game.

Apartment Therapy wrote about a fun way to recycle bubble wrap into a travel BINGO that pops!

The Divine Miss Mommy lists 5 Educational Kids Games appropriate for travel.
Yellow Pear Photography put together lovely little travel tins.

The Dating Divas have put together some travel games and printables intended for a date night, yet they could be adapted for use with children.

Do you have a travel trick or activity to share?


  1. These are some great ideas! I also shared 6 road trip literacy ideas on my blog last week from things to do at a rest stop to keeping a travel journal. You can check them all out at
    Thanks for sharing this great list!

  2. I love the magnetic faces idea.
    One year I had a group of 8-12 year olds make their own travel games. This post has two that I really like - a mini board game and a question game meant for an airplane ride. Some of them also made games for younger children (felt boards and the like.)
