Printable Road Trip Bingo

So, are you wondering how to entertain the kids while you’re driving on your family vacation? This printable road trip game is our family favorite!

As you drive down the road kids will pay attention to their surroundings as they try to spot and mark off items on their road trip bingo card. This can be played with little kids who need to get five in a row to win bingo. Or with older kids who can go for a blackout, where they have to get everything on the board. That could take a while!

Printable Road Trip Bingo Game

We have created 4 Road Trip Bingo cards for plenty of variation. You can print multiple game cards and have kids mark them with a crayon or pen as they spot things. Or if you prefer to re-use the game boards then insert each card in to a plastic sheet protector and mark with a dry erase pen. See details below about how to make your own DIY printable road trip games kit.

Travel Tray for Road Trip Games

kids travel tray

We like to use our BE Family Travel Tray on a road trip with printable games for kids. The car seat travel tray sits in the child’s lap and provides a flat, firm surface for the child to play, draw, or work on their printable road trip games. This is also a great place to hold a water bottle or eat a snack. The multi functional capabilities of the BE Family Travel Tray will help end the “are we nearly there yet” boredom.

DIY Road Trip Games Kit

Also, you can print the road trip games and use them with a regular pen, crayon or marker. Or if you prefer to re-use your printable road trip games then you can make your own DIY Kit using the following supplies.

Description of how to make a Printable Road Trip Games Kit:

  1. Print the road trip games, and gather the supplies listed above.
  2. Cut approximately 24″ length of string.
  3. Using the tape, attach one end of the string to the Expo Dry Erase Marker, trim any excess string with scissors.
  4. Then tie a triple knot to attach the other end of the string to the metal clip on the clipboard, and trim any excess string with scissors.
  5. Insert each printed road trip game into a clear sheet protector.
  6. Put the stack of sheet protectors, with printable games, on the clipboard ready to use on your next family road trip. If you have a storage clipboard that opens then you can store the extra sheets inside.
  7. Finally, use a baby wipe or damp paper towel to wipe clean the sheet protectors and then reuse the printable games.

Ruth Hutchins grew up in England and now lives in North Carolina with her husband, Doug, and their two young daughters. They always loved to travel, but once having children everything changed because family travel is more complicated. Traveling with a baby may feel overwhelming to new parents. Travel with a toddler can really test your patience, and traveling with kids can lead to utter chaos. However, travel with your little ones doesn’t have to be that stressful or exhausting. On the BE Family Travel blog Ruth shares her parenting wins, and even epic failures about traveling with kids. She provides resources to help you feel empowered to plan a family vacation and travel with your children.
