Spring Break and Road TripTravel Games

Spring Break is almost here!  I've put together some fun activities to do while traveling to any destination!  Here are a few ideas of ways to organize your backseat to hold treats, drinks, and games!

Road Trip Bingo (link)
Here are two different Car Bingo games. Each has 4 different cards with the items scrambled up. Print enough for each person to have one from each game. Pennies make good card markers, or you can print fresh ones for each trip and check off items with a pencil. They will also fit into a quart sized zipper bag that you can write on with a dry erase marker. You may even want to print these on card stock paper and laminate them, so you can keep them in your box of travel goodies so they'll last for several trips. Print the 8 different bingo cards below!

License Plate State Map Game
1. Print out this US states map
2. When you spot a license plate from a new states, color in those states with bright colored crayons!
3.  Goal is to find all 50 state license plates!
This will help you locate each state on a map!

Make a Trip Journal
It doesn't need to be fancy or complicated. In fact, the simpler the better. The only thing you need is a big spiral bound sketch pad and a box of crayons or markers for each child. Each day of the trip, or for each event along the way, have your child draw a picture of what they did that day, and write about it. You can also paste in souvenirs such as brochures, ticket stubs and other momentous. 
If your child isn't old enough to write, then Mom or Dad can help by offering to write a caption on the page or a couple of sentences on the back. Remember that it's his journal, so ask your child what he wants you to write. Then be sure to add the date.
