Fun Travel games for kids
These travel games and activities for kids are some of our family’s favorites for road trips, or anytime you are in need of a little mess-free fun! If you have a road trip planned for this Summer, these travel games are sure to keep the kids entertained along the way. A big thank you to our friends at Melissa & Doug for sponsoring today’s ideas for creative play on-the-go!
1. Reusable Stickers
One of our favorite travel activities are the reusable sticker sets from Melissa & Doug. We love how easy they are to pick up and move around on the various background pages. The kids love the wide variety of sets that are available!
Tip: If you are traveling by airplane and have access to a window seat, these work well on the window surface or fold-down tray too!
Here’s a short video demo of one of the reusable sticker sets:
2. Picnic Snack
If time allows, consider stopping along the way for a picnic snack. It is amazing how hungry and thirsty kids can get while traveling in a car! This is a great time to use the bathroom facilities, or play a quick game of catch or tag to let the kids burn off some of their extra energy before getting back into the car to continue your journey.
3. Water Wow
Water Wow is another favorite travel activity my kids enjoy immensely. Using a special brush that is filled with just plain water, kids can “paint” colorful masterpieces that are completely mess-free! If your kids enjoy painting, I highly recommend Water Wow for on-the-go art or anytime they want to paint without the mess!
Here is a little video demo of Water Wow in action:
4. Box Girls
The Box Girls games are a series of question cards decided to spark conversation and get to know one another. There are many different themes available, but we particularly love the Family Dinner Box of Questions set as well as the Family Road Trip Box of Questions set. These are great ice-breaker activities and really get the kids talking!
