Kids will love these free road trip printables to keep them engaged, busy, and having fun on your summer vacation!
Summer is the time for road trips! The sun is out, the roads are open and sparkly and it’s time to go and explore the world one stop at a time. Are you on this train? What comes to my mind is ‘it’s all fun and games until you have kids’. With kids, road trips become a whole different ball game. When kids are in the picture, a road trip is no longer care free and on a whim. Road trip with kids actually takes planning and coming up with car friendly activities that will keep our kids entertained and dare I say calm for at least a handful of hours. That is when these Printable Road Trip Activities come in handy.
Travel Activities for Kids
These road trip activities are not only fun, will keep your kids entertained, but will also help keep kids’ minds moving. The activities include either strategy, memory, or creativity.
The prep for these printable road trip activities is simple! Depending on your preference, there are only a few things to do. The first step is to print off the sheets. This can be done below.
My suggestion would be to print off one set for each child going on the road trip with you. Next I would laminate the sheets
. This can be done double sided, by placing two papers, back sides together and laminating. This will save on space and laminating sheets. Laminating will allow kids to use these sheets over and over throughout the course of the road trip. This will also ensure that the activities do not get ruined with the first drink spill or crinkled in the crease of the seat.
- If you are laminating the activities, kids can use dry erase markers or dry erase crayons with the sheets.
- If you choose not to laminate, you can print as many copies as you think you’ll need. Kids can use markers, crayons or colored pencils with these activities.
These would also be helpful for when you are in the car running a ton of errands. Sometimes my kids get bored after 3 minutes in the car. Having activities such as these in the car, ready to go is super helpful for times when we are busy and going from one place to another.
