Thanksgiving Road Trip Games

Pack the Car for a Road Trip

Spending time on the road to visit your family can be a little boring, especially if you’re traveling for hours on end. We here at Krause Toyota have a few Thanksgiving road trip games that will help pass the time this holiday season.

I Spy

A true road trip classic, I Spy has been around for decades, which means almost every driver is familiar with it. Explaining the rules to kids is a pretty straightforward task. Simply start the game by saying “I spy with my little eye something that begins with (letter of an object or landmark).” The person who guesses the object or landmark correctly then makes their own I spy statement, and so on.


Older kids might get bored with I Spy after a few short minutes on the road, especially if you’re traveling through a dull landscape. Fortunately, the Geography game will help their minds stay active, even when they’re stuck in the car. Using geographic bodies, such as countries, the next player must follow another country that begins with the last player of the previous country. For example, France would be followed by England which would be followed by Denmark, and so on.

Two Truths and a Lie

Test your knowledge of your passengers by playing Two Truths and a Lie. Each player will make three statements, two of which will be true. Other passengers must then guess which statement is the lie.
