Well, we have a fantastic extensive list of Road Trip Games & Activities for you to browse.

The one where you fill in your own Road Trip Games Cootie Catcher
This second printable you can use in two ways. You can either re-write the 8 cames to include YOUR favourite family Road Trip Games. Or you can use it as prompts for any of the games mentioned above.
E.g. you can turn it into a “How many will see” game? – simply add a word or a drawing of things you are likely to see on your Road Trip (traffic lights, white cars, cows, churches etc). Then play the cootie catcher and use that as the next item to guess and count.
Alternatively, draw the same items.. and use the cootie catcher as a scavenger hunt.. the is the first to sport the next item.
