How To Play Road Trip Bingo
- To play road trip bingo, print off all of the free bingo sheets (each player will have a different bingo card) and take a pen each. Make sure the kids have something to lean on in the car; a book will do!
- Next, ask the children to look out of the window and find the items on their bingo cards. When they see it, simply cross it off with a pen.
- The first one to cross out a whole line (across, down or diagonal) wins the first round. Next, the aim is to fill the whole bingo card, so have a prize for the overall winner too!
- Of course, taking part deserves a prize so pack prizes all around for all players!

If your children are really young, and you feel the activity would be too challenging for them. You can make the whole game just about marking off a line on the bingo sheet, instead of the whole bingo card.

Why Kids Love Road Trip Bingo
Kids love road trip bingo because it is fun, challenging, and relieves boredom on a long car journey! This printable activity is so simple to understand, therefore easy for children of all ages to follow!
So long as they can see out of the car window, they have just as equal a chance as one another. This makes the game fair, enjoyable, and a really lovely activity for them to do on the way to the destination.
If you keep the game in a plastic wallet and mark the wallet instead of the paper, they can reuse it many times. All you need to do is buy some wipeable whiteboard markers.
