5 Games To Bring On A RV Vacation

Long drives on the road in a RV can get boring for kids. Bring along fun games and activities to make the time between stops even more fun. The following are 5 games that are ideal to bring on an RV vacation.

An RV vacation can be an experience people remember for a lifetime. The best aspect of a RV trip is not in reaching the intended destination, but in seeing the country on the way to the destination. While that should prove to be entertaining enough in itself, it is simply not the case. At some point, children will begin to whine, argue, and fight with one another, driving their parents to the brink of insanity. Even adults can begin to become snippy with each other.

5 Games To Bring On A RV Vacation

1. Sudoku

Sudoku puzzles are an excellent way for passengers to pass the time while traveling in an RV on the open road. And Sudoku is not only fun to complete, but also educational. For those unfamiliar with Sudoku, the concept is simple and based on logic. It is a 9 x 9 number grid where each vertical and horizontal row will never repeat a number and the numbers range from one to nine. The best aspect of Sudoku is that it requires no math skills. You can print free Sodoku cards too!

2. Bingo Game

Bingo is a classic game that people of all ages enjoy. There is no need to spend money on a travel bingo set; bingo cards can be printed out online and taken to any copy store for lamination. Once they are laminated, passengers can use dry erase markers to mark their squares and wipe them off with a wet wipe in order to play again.

3. Go Fish Card Game

Another fun game to bring on a RV Vacation is Go Fish. This game is a fun, family-friendly card game that is appropriate for children of any age. There are quite a few variations on this card game and special Go Fish decks can be purchased for a few dollars; however, standard 52-card decks work fine as well. This game can keep younger children occupied for up to an hour.

4. Checkers Game

Checkers is a board game both children and adults like to play. It is a two-player game where the object of winning is to “take” the opponents checker by jumping over it; the person who has collected all of their opponent’s checkers is declared the winner. While it may not seem reasonable to take along a game with 24 checker pieces, many board game manufacturers make magnetic checker boards, ensuring that pieces do not slide off the board when the RV hits a pothole or rounds a corner.

5. Arts and Crafts

Drawing, painting, and making fun crafts can be a great way to pass the time in an RV. Older children can learn to knit or crochet to pass the time. Younger children can colour and draw pictures, or even make a nature journal to record all of the plants and animals they have seen on the trip.
