Free Road Trip Bingo Printable Game Boards

As you plan your upcoming Spring break and Summer vacation it’s no doubt that many of you have fun road trips planned! Road trips can be a challenge if you have kids along so be prepared with these great road trip travel tips! There are 2 road trip essentials when it comes to kids, activities and snacks! Be prepared with both and a few more tips below and my free printable travel bingo game!

Free Travel Bingo Printable

My kids often play “I Spy” in the car and take turns trying to spot a red car or a number eight. I took that one step further and created these awesome Road Trip Bingo free printable games. There are four different bingo boards so all the kids can play (and won’t have the same board, thus winning at the same time). As they spot things on the bingo board they can mark them off. I grabbed some fun stamper markers so they can stamp each space as they see the object. They will need to spot various road signs, different colored cars, a construction cone or a convertible!

Road Trip Games For Kids

Once they get five in a straight line, diagonal, horizontal or vertical, they win Bingo! You can also mix it up and do different variations such as getting an “X” on the board with two diagonal lines crossing. Mix it up and have fun. Grab my free travel bingo printable and print it off!

Road Trip Survival Kit

Along with the Road Trip Bingo you’ll also want to make sure you bring along plenty of other car games such as coloring books, activity books, travel size board games, kids handheld games and look and find games.

Weight Watchers Salted Caramel Brownie Bites

One thing I always make sure to have handy is a bag full of snacks. Stopping along the way every time someone gets hungry is just not doable with four kids in tow! Not only that, but it also gets expensive to do all your snacking from convenience stores. Plus by bringing my own snacks I can bring along healthier snacks than what I would find along the way on a road trip. I always make sure to have plenty of crunchy snacks like chips, pretzels and cheese crackers for the kids. Of course I also bring along treats like gummy snacks and cookies for the kids. In order to avoid the common pitfalls of a road trip I also stock my snack bag with Weight Watchers Salted Caramel Brownie Bliss bars. They taste amazing, um salted caramel and chocolate? Yes please! Plus they satisfy my sweet tooth at just 2 points! It’s a win win!

Here are a few other tips for road trips with kids:

  1. Pack plenty of snacks, both salty and sweet. Set yourself up for success by bringing along healthy snacks too. Apples, cheese sticks (in a cooler), and granola bars are great options. Keep healthier sweets on hand to avoid cheating on your diet, like the Weight Watchers Salted Caramel Brownie Bliss bars.
  2. Bring plenty of games along to keep the kids entertained (Grab my free travel bingo).
  3. Have all the kids try to go potty before leaving. Then limit their fluid intake during the trip so you aren’t having to stop every twenty minutes. Provide drinks only at snack or meal times and only in limited amounts so they don’t chug down a whole bottle of water at once.
  4. Plan to leave on your road trip at nap time or bed time. Driving while the kids sleep is a great way to make good progress without having to stop so often.
  5. Be flexible! Traveling with kids has it’s challenges but it also creates priceless memories. Be flexible so you don’t get stressed out and miss out on the fun you could be having.

    Oh my God I absolutely love this! We are going on a road trip into weeks, so I’m definitely going to print this out for my boys.

    • Oh have an awesome road trip! I hope your boys enjoy playing bingo! It’s always a hit with my kiddos.

  2. I’ll have to keep this bingo game in mind when my kiddos are a little older. Road trips are always a hard time to keep kids occupied and having fun.

  3. Such a great idea to have the bag packed with road trip games and snacks. Those brownie bites look divine.

  4. I have GOT to get some of those Road Trip Bingo cards! We just drove 3 hours to the Grandparents house for Spring Break. And while it was an OK drive for the boys, my daughter really struggled. I think she’d get a kick out of the bingo game!

    And YES to those caramel Brownie bites! I just love the Weight Watchers little snacks! So good!

  5. Oh my, these are just great. We live in Texas and take tons of road trips all over, so these are perfect. Thanks for sharing. Love the printables

  6. These are great ideas. The travel Bingo would be a fun way to pass time.
