Colorful Cars

After everyone has entered the car and the trip has begun, take one minute for every player to choose a color from cars that are passing by. Once colors have been chosen, every player attempts to find objects of his chosen color. As each item is found, the player must call out the object and verify it with the other players. (To keep track of items found, each player can count on his fingers or write them down on a list.) The winner is the player with the most found objects at the end of the journey (or set time limit).

Stoplight Challenge

Each time you reach a stoplight that is on red, challenge a player to name ten things in a specified category, such as U.S. states, fast food restaurants, actors and actresses, singers, etc., before the light turns green. Each time a player can name 10 things, she earns a point. The winner is the player with the most points at the end of a specified time.

Super Spies

Before each trip, make a list of things people in other cars could be doing, such as talking on a cell phone, singing, sleeping, driving a truck, etc. Share the list with everyone in the car. After everyone has entered the car and the trip has begun, each player must be on the lookout for people doing the things on the list. The first player to see everything on the list wins. To make it more challenging, be very specific with what other people could be doing, such as wearing a blue hat, wearing wire-rim glasses, using a hands-free device, etc

Deleted Word Songs

Before each trip, choose any everyday word that is prohibited in the car, such as “the,” “of,” “is,” etc. Bring along small tokens such as buttons or pennies. Once the trip has begun, turn on the radio, and have everyone sing along. If a player is caught saying the prohibited word, give her a token. The winner is the player with the fewest tokens when the trip is complete.

I’m Thinking of…

After everyone has entered the car and the trip has begun, have one player think of a person, place, or thing. The other players take turns asking yes-or-no questions to help them guess what the other person is thinking about. After each question, the player asking the questions gets to take one guess. The winner is the player who guesses correctly first.

Never, Never, Have I Ever

Once the trip begins, each player takes a turn telling everyone something they’ve never done, such as eaten Brussels sprouts, been on an airplane, etc. Each player is trying to name something that everyone else in the car has done. A successful “Never, Never, Have I Ever” earns each player one point. The winner is the first player to reach a set amount of points.

Alphabet Search

Before each trip, give each player a notepad or piece of paper and a pencil. Have each player choose one letter of the alphabet and write it at the top of the page. Once the trip begins, each player records what she sees that begins with her chosen letter. The winner is the first person to reach 25 items. To make it more challenging, have each player choose more than one letter of the alphabet.

Counting Cows

Once the trip begins, divide the players into two teams (those on the left side of the car vs. those on the right side of the car). Choose something that you might see a lot of, such as cows in the countryside. The team on the right will look out the right side of the car, and the team on the left will look out the left side of the car. Each cow that is spotted earns a point. If the car passes a school, the team on the same side of the road as the school loses half their points. The winner is the team with the most points at the end of the trip.

License Plate Numbers

See how high you can count using the numbers from license plates. Start with 1, then 2, and so on. Do not mix up the numerals in the numbers. For example, a license plate with the number 379 would give you a 3, 7, 9, 37, 79, or 379, but not 97. Play by yourself or with others to see who can get to the highest number.

Alphabet Hunt

Once the trip begins, each player searches for the letters of the alphabet in order. Players can use road signs, bumper stickers, license plates, etc. Players can use only one letter from each source, and they cannot use letters found inside your own vehicle.
