Games to Play With Your Kids on Long Car Trips


Road Trip

Enjoy the Great Family Road Trip

At our car dealership in Orange County NY, we do our best to find you the car that best suits your needs. If you have a family, there’s one thing you have to be prepared for: the road trip. Middletown Honda can help you find a minivan or SUV perfect for your family, but we’ve also got a few games for you to play with your kids while on the road (for your sanity as well as theirs).

Twenty Questions

This classic game is still a hit with kids. Think of something (animal, mineral, or vegetable), and then participants have only 20 questions to ask questions to determine what the thing is you’re thinking of. Remember that questions can only be answered with a yes or a no.


Here’s another favorite best played with a larger group—if you have a large family, we have new 2012 Honda models (and more 2013 models will be rolling in soon) capable of fitting everyone. One person starts it off by whispering a phrase to one person and then that person whispers it to another. When the message comes around, it’s usually completely different; the noise from driving on the highway is sure to distort things further, making the final message that much more hilarious. This game is fun at any age.

Fast Food Chain Race

This game is perfect for keeping the kids focused and (hopefully) quiet for a little bit. The prevalence of fast food restaurants these days is a bit out of control, but is perfect for this game. Each participant picks a fast food restaurant like McDonalds or Kentucky Fried Chicken. Every time the person sees the restaurant or sees it advertised on a billboard/exit sign, they get a point. It’s best to make a time limit to keep the kids as focused as possible.

Throw in a DVD

There are plenty of games out there, but sometimes the adults need a break too. An accessory perfect for car trips is a rear entertainment system. Pop in the kids’ favorite movie or television show and you are good to go. This is going to be very useful on a very long car trip.
