4 Fun Games For That Long Car Journey

Share this article:

You’ll no doubt be hitting the road for a few hours this summer. Whether it’s to go out on a day trip or away for the whole weekend, you’ve got miles ahead of you. So, how can you make that car journey a bit more exciting? Well asides from listening to a sizzling summer playlist, you can play fun games!

  1. I Spy

This classic game never gets old. And whilst it’s loved by children, adults can join in on the fun too!

Now, whilst you don’t want to give away the game away too easily, it’s only fair to choose objects that are inside the car. Otherwise, players could be trying to guess something that you passed a few junctions back!

You know the drill: “I spy with my little eye, something beginning with... (Insert letter of your choice)”, and let the questions commence! The person who guesses the object correctly is the next person to spy a new thing.

  1. The Supermarket Game

The grocery game provides entertainment for hours. How? Well, it’s an excellent way to keep everyone engaged; there’s no time for daydreaming when you’re playing this memory game!

So, how do you play? The first player names an item available at a supermarket that starts with the letter A. The next player has to repeat what the first player said and then add another grocery item that starts with a B.

For example, if player one says "apples," player two would repeat "apples" and then might add "bread". If you forget a grocery item, you're out, and the game continues until the player with the best memory wins!

  1. Team Storytelling

Composing a team story can be a barrel of laughs; you can be as imaginative as you like! And when a group of you are involved, the story doesn’t half get wacky. What does this mean? An amusing car journey is ahead.

The first person starts the first line of the story, which can be as simple or as eccentric as he or she wishes, and each person in the car adds a line. The story builds and before you know it, you’ve almost reached your destination!

Make your story more challenging by deciding on some sort of rule; perhaps each line has to rhyme or the story has to have a certain theme.  If you’re going to a safari park, you could have an animal themed story!

  1. The Banana Game

No, you’re not on the hunt for bananas but you do need to keep your eyes peeled for yellow cars!

The first person to spot a yellow vehicle gets points. And if you really want to get competitive then have a mind-set of: the bigger, the better! For example, a yellow lorry will get you more points than a nippy little yellow sports car!

The player who spots the most ‘bananas’ is the winner.
