FREE Printable Roadtrip Games for Kids

One of the things the kids thought was the most fun on our vacation was their FUN folders. Inside their folder was:
  • Route map - so they could follow along and visualize where we were. I also put some “X”s along the way – they were treasure spots!! This was easy to make on Mapquest.
  • Flip card Games –  I made 20+ {FREE} Printable Car Games. Just print, laminate, and use and reuse to your hearts content! I used a hole punch and C clip to make ours into a flip card. These are not only great for the road, but to stick in a diaper bag for a doctor’s visit or restaurant. Just click on the image to download. Enjoy!

  • Map of the USA to color in the states we went through (why not make it a little educational)
  • Coloring/Writing sheet for each day so the kids could draw pictures and record their memories
  • Magazine (Lego for Goofy and Princess for Minnie)
  • Coloring Book & Crayons
  • Where are we going today Scratch Off Card – Since this was not a vacation like any other we had done before the kids were confused that we weren’t just gong one place. So I made this scratch-off card. The kids were so excited to scratch it off in the morning or the night before and discover what neat place we were going that day. It was a HUGE hit! It was also great to help the kids understand time a little better. (click for tutorial on making your own scratch-off cards)how to make your own scratch off cards
  • Prize Scratch-off Card – Ever since the kids were little I have brought along presents on vacations. The kids really look forward to it!! The presents aren’t big, usually things from the dollar section (sometimes 50% off), lollipop, coloring book, bubbles, playdough, etc. But the excitement of having presents to open and new things to play with is always a HUGE hit. We have always had easy-going kids on vacation! The idea with the prize scratch-off was to build some anticipation and variety….. plus to make the presents last longer! If the kids got to a map treasure spot, completed a file folder game, won a game (from above flip cards) or just for remembered a piece of trivia I asked them about a spot we visited they got to SCRATCH! They could get a snack, present, sticker, Disney tattoo, chocolate coin, etc. (click for tutorial on making your own scratch-off cards)
