Today I have a great printable pack to share with you, made up of 13 pages of activities to keep kids entertained in the car, or while travelling.

Printables games to play in the car including car bingo, alphabet game, car search and more

With the weather warming up, you may be planning holidays or long road trips and the last thing you want is the children getting bored in the back of the car, so it’s worth printing out some of these activities and keeping them handy along with a clip board and some pens, pencils and crayons.

Games to play in the car

Car Bingo

To play car Bingo, you need to spot these items out of the window. The first person to complete a whole line (whether row or column) wins!

There are 5 different car bingo boards available in this set. Download them for free here.

Alphabet Car Game

This game is about spotting different things beginning with each letter, to complete the whole alphabet. It’s  kind of a twist on the classic I Spy game – but you race to complete the whole alphabet. You could also give points to the best or most unusual item spotted for each letter.

Consequence

This is a classic paper game, whether in the car or at home. I remember playing it often as a child. It always results in lots of giggles! Draw one section of the sheet, fold it and pass it on so that the next person doesn’t know what you have drawn. When it’s unfolded, you can get some really funny creations!

Car Search

If your kids are interested in different types of cars, this is always a good one. Look out of the windows and keep a count of how many of each car you can spot.

Traffic Jam Game

This is a fun combination of a colouring activity and a board game. Kids can race each other to see who can win and arrive at the theme park first.
