  • 10 road trip games adults will enjoy

    Before tablets and podcasts, we used games to keep us entertained. For your next road trip, try these 10 road trip games adults will enjoy. This will come in handy for the school holidays! Let’s jump right in. Don’t forget to let us know which game you enjoyed most on your trip! If you have some sleepy passengers in the car, you should play “While You Were Sleeping.” The Game: Create the most believable story when someone falls asleep The Rules: First, a passenger must fall asleep After five minutes of slumber, the awake passengers begin creating a story Each person takes turns adding to the story Once the passenger wakes up, you must get them to believe the story If somebody breaks character, they lose a point If somebody goes off script, you ask, “Are you sure?” and then that person is silenced and loses two points If you successfully fool the person, each storyteller wins three points If the sleeping passenger fools the car and joins their story correctly, they steal their current point The one with the most points at the destination wins For a good old-fashioned guessing game, play “21 Questions.” The Game: Guess what a person is thinking in 21 questions The Rules: Someone thinks of something Then the car begins by asking questions You can’t repeat a question that has been asked Whoever guesses it right gets to start the next round If your car mates are current and hip on events, then you should play “Did You Hear That…?” The Game: Pop culture and news collide for a fun game of fact or fiction The Rules: You are trying to fool your opponent You start by asking, “Did you hear that _______ happened?” Your opponent can either say, “That didn’t happen,” or, “Tell me more.” If they correctly guess that it didn’t happen, the opponent gets two points If they incorrectly guess that it didn’t happen, you steal one point and gain two additional If you are asked, “Tell me more,” points double at the end of the statement For a car full of human jukeboxes, play “The Singing Game.” The Game: Connect song lyrics for a fun sing-along game The Rules: One person starts singing a song Using a lyric from the song, the next person has to connect it with another song It continues on until somebody messes up the lyrics or is stumped Example: “I kissed a girl…

  • Embarking on a road trip

    If you are embarking on a road trip these Holidays the last thing you want is unhappy passengers or an uncomfortable journey. These issues can be avoided by simply remembering to pack these essential items… Audio Books Check some new-to-you audiobooks out of the library. Kids and adults alike can enjoy tales like The Chronicles of Narnia, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Hobbit, or Harry Potter—and their easy storylines make them perfect for a driver to pay attention to, as well.   Car food There are two strategies with car food: You can either bring along crumb-free, non-greasy, non-gooey finger foods—like baby carrots, grapes, and sandwiches—or pack your family’s favourite “treat” foods like chips and baked goods, as a special car reward. Pillows and blankets Pack favourite bed pillows and blankets to soothe everyone on the journey. Whether it’s a child’s security blanket or a pillow for the passenger seat navigator, a soft cushion can make a cold car cosy. Paper products Pack paper towels, toilet paper (you never know with rest areas and petrol stations!), a box of tissues, and some garbage bags. And bring more than you think you’ll need—there’s always the possibility of car sickness in addition to the normal spills and usual cleanup. Spare keys Don’t get locked out of the car: Always pack a duplicate set of car (and house) keys in a separate bag. Sports equipment Bring along a Frisbee, ball, or jump rope so antsy kids (and adults!) can blow off a little steam at rest stops. First aid kit To treat road-trip aches, nicks, and scrapes, pack a plastic bag full of items like anti-bacterial cream, bandages, pain relievers, and motion sickness medicine. Travel games Some friendly competition will go a long way towards warding off boredom. Some ideas: cards, travel bingo, and word games. Breakdown supplies Double-check your boot for a complete roadside emergency kit, including a flashlight, jack, basic tools, jumper cables and a warning triangle to name a few items Wet wipes Bring a container of disposable wipes, or simply put some folded damp paper towels in a resealable plastic bag. You’ll use them for everything from sticky fingers to a quick refreshing mask for road-weary eyes. Car chargers Make sure you bring along a travel charger for your cell phone and other electronic devices. Change of clothes If you’re travelling with young children, remember that accidents happen. Bring along a change…
