Sometimes Mom and Dad's ideas for vacation fun involve hopping in the car and getting out of Dodge. Many of us have fond childhood memories of family road trips taken with our own parents, but now that we're grown up, we sometimes forget Driving around bored looking boring the backseat can be. If you'd prefer a solution that doesn't always Driving around bored looking electronicstry some of these fun games that keep everyone in the car playing together—even the ones strapped in a car seat.

The Name Game My son and his friends enjoy this one so much that they often want to keep playing after the drive is over. Someone says a name e. Alexisand the next person has to say a name that begins with the last letter of that name in this case S, so maybe Simon. The third person picks a name that begins with the last letter of the second person's choice, and so on. No duplicates allowed, and they must all be real names. A more challenging version for older kids is names of places with the same rules.
My Cows This one only works if you're driving through rural areas, but it's great for long drives. When driving past a farm with cows, the first person to spot them calls out "My Cows! The object, of course, is to "collect" the most cows. If the car passes over a bridge, whoever spots it first gets to erase another player's cows. The erase landscape object doesn't need to be a bridge; it can be a graveyard or anything else you might pass periodically on a road trip replete with cows.
Punch Buggy There may still be people out there who don't know the Punch Buggy game, so we'd better include it. Volkswagen Beetles are Punch Buggies. The first person to spot one calls out the color with the instruction, "Orange Punch Buggy—no punch backs! The "no punch backs" part is important for obvious reasons. If someone guesses correctly before the 20th question, that person is the winner and goes next. If no one figures it out, the person answering has won and goes again.
I Spy This is essentially the same as 20 Questions, but the chosen object must be within sight—at least at the outset of the game. The person starts with the phrase, "I spy with my little eye something beginning with The rest follows like 20 questions, either with a set of questions, or until someone guesses correctly, as preferred. Name That Tune Here's where the radio comes in handy as more than just a dial to fight over. Turn it on, move the dial until you hear a song, and see who can name the tune first. Repeat as much as you'd like. Add-on Storytelling One person starts a story, with just a line or two, then stops mid-sentence.
The next person picks up the tale and keeps building. No one can negate someone else's idea, only build on Driving around bored looking. The stories always go in crazy directions that are usually good for a group giggle! Plate Poker The rules are similar to real poker, which makes this one more of an older kid game.
A passing plate is used as a complete hand of poker. Each player chooses a plate and keeps the best five "cards" e.
If everyone in the car has smartphones or cameras, players can even snap photos of their hands; otherwise, everyone can write down the cards—or just trust each other to be honest about what they were "dealt. People who already know how to play poker can apply more complicated game rules if they prefer.
Plate Initials This one is pure silliness. Everyone in the car comes up with an answer before moving on to the next letter combination. This generally brings lots of laughs once everyone warms up. Driving around bored looking Latin Not so much a game as a passing of the torch: Isn't it time your kids learned to speak Pig Latin?
So few kids these days study the classics. A long car journey is the perfect opportunity to have all backseat riders uent-flay before they get get ome-hay.
