For some of us, Thanksgiving means a road trip with lots of family time spent in the car. A road trip is often the cheapest way to travel for a family, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. You can easily make these trips more entertaining and festive with some Thanksgiving road trip games. We at Bob Sight Ford want to ensure that you’ll have a good time this holiday, so here are some Thanksgiving road trip games to play in the car!
Holiday I Spy:
This is a classic game that families have always played, but we can put a small twist on it to make it holiday-themed! If you’d like, you can orient the game around items that have to do with the holiday season. To play, pick a passenger to go first and have them select something from your immediate surroundings that has to do with the holidays and say, “I spy with my little eye something that starts with the letter (insert letter).” The person who correctly guesses the spied item gets to go next.
Thanks Word Game
Share what you’re thankful for by playing a word game with a Thanksgiving twist. To play this Thanksgiving word game, have one person—let’s call them the thanks giver—think of something that they’re thankful for that is only one word and announce the first letter of the word to the other passengers (you can extend it to two words if you’re feeling daring, and have them give the first letter of both words). The other people in the car have to guess what the thanks giver is thankful for. Every two minutes, have the thanks giver give the next letter of their word. This game is not only fun, but it will allow you to learn about your traveling companions and what they’re thankful for, and we’re sure you’ll be thankful for that.
