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.
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.
The 2017 Toyota RAV4 features standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P, a suite of active safety technologies designed to make the road a safer place. That means heading out on an adventure is now safer than ever before! Here are some fun family adventures to take in the safe 2017 Toyota RAV4, recommended by us here at Krause Toyota.
The 2017 Toyota RAV4 offers a spacious interior that’s perfect for packing away camping equipment. Heading out to your local campsite is a breeze at any time of the day thanks to the Automatic High beams. The active safety feature detects oncoming vehicles up to 2,000 feet away and switches the high beams on and off automatically.
Now you don’t have to worry about running into other drivers on backroads as you head to or from the campsite.
Long road trips can be a drag and cause fatigue. The RAV4’s Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist aids drivers in fighting fatigue by warning them when the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane. If the driver doesn’t respond, then the system corrects the vehicle’s course. Take the family on a road trip somewhere scenic, like the Appalachian Trail, this summer.
Trying something new is what summer is all about, and kayaking tends to land high on the list. It may be a long drive, but the RAV4’s Dynamic Radar Cruise Control maintains a set speed and safe distance between vehicles. That means there’s plenty of time for some road trip games as you head over to the river.
