Mini peg board games. Oh course, I see with my little eye something, green, red etc,... Charting license plates from different states, reading road signs and quoting the military terms for the letters, i.e. STOP = Sierra, Tango, Oscar, Papa, and the quiet game. That one is where parents are tired of the talking and offer a quarter to the one who is quiet the longest. Might have to bump the price up a bit as my children are all grown up now. A quarter went a ways back then. The last time we played that game my 17 year old son told me when we were driving around, "Okay, mom, let's play the quite game now." I made him give me the quarter when we got home, lol!
Some kids like to play to play the state game... See how many different state license plates you can find. When I was younger I used to play the alphabet game and what you do is look at the signs and starting from a you try to find a sign with the letter a on it and then you go to b and then so on. I would also pick a color of a car and count how many you see and whoever at the end of the trip saw the most color of the car they picked won.
Cows and Cemetaries- count as many cows as you can on your side of the road/in a field and everytime there's a cemetary on your side of of the road you lose all the cows you counted and have to start over, whoever has the most cows in the end wins :D
Start with the letter A and then have everyone look for and name something that starts with an A. Next B, then C and so on. For example, Auto, Barn, Car, Door (could be a car door).... you just have to have a good rationale for the choice. 1 person wins each round and gets a point. Adjectives not acceptable, i.e. "blue car" for B fails. When you get to X you'll probably have to skip it. Z, too.
if you are with someone play banana. whenever a yellow car goes by whoever screams banana first gets to punch someone in the arm or leg. if you're alone play something on your phone like flow line, angry birds, or make a video on the app vine.
If there is someone in the car with you, you can play drawing contest Here is how it works: You each get a piece of paper and take turns picking something for u all to draw And u only get 30 seconds to draw it

the car game ... yellow car- 1 point vertable(convertible)=1 point mini=1 point ... they all = 1 point ..... there is more ... plane(airplane) postal(mail truck) stink(garbage truck) flag ( flag of a different country) and you can even make up more types of cars like a school bus or something! whoever has the most points at the end of the car ride wins!!! have fun!
reading road sign..for example the letter is a the players look for a sign or a fast food place/store ect that starts with the letter a then after that you look for b and so on and so forth...or you can play license plate game ..for this game have to think ahead. print out all the states different license plates .. and grab a clip board every time you see a states license plate you check it off on your clip board..person with all the states checked off wins!!! if all else fails you could just play games on your phone ipad or ipod :) yay fun right!! if you dont have any of those things..take a nap
You can play a game where you try to find a license plate from every state. My fam loves singing so we play a game where the someone thinks of a random word (preferably someone not playing) and all the players try to find a song that uses that word and if you cant your out. Start off easy. Another game is where we put music on shuffle (songs everyone knows) and play first 20 seconds of it and you have to try to guess it and if you don't your out. Sounds easy but you dot know how many songs don't start singing in the first 20 minutes.

Try to make words with the letters in the license plates of the cars that go past. However, the letters on the license plate must be in the word in that order. For example, if the first three letters are OBS, then you can use "Observation," "Obviously," etc. But you can't use "Stab" or "Boss" because the letters in the word chosen aren't in the same order as they appear in the license plate. Also - the "Movie Actor Game" which is where you think of a movie, name any 2 of the actors in that movie. Then the person after you MUST use the name of the last actor you picked, then pair it with another actor in a different movie they both played in. For example, you could say Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta in "Pulp Fiction" and the person after you MUST use John Travolta NOT Samuel L. Jackson since Travolta was the last actor named. Then that person could say John Travolta and Denzel Washington in "The Taking of Pelham 123." Once a movie is used, it can't be used again.
character game! have 1 piece of paper. fold it into 3 parts. get one person to draw a head. then another person to draw the belly. then get another person to draw the feet. then take another piece of paper and write a story using the character in the story!!!
this game that i was taught by my cousins, it's a tradition: - we take a notepad and pen and make a chart including 4 sections: who, where, with who, doing what. - then you fill in the lists 1 section at a time with at least 10 entries, without reading the full lines, just filling in column by column - in the "who column"- people u know/ in the car. - in the "where" column - places where you would never usually go/ impossible to go there - in the "with who" column - famous people/ funny famous people to be around - in the "doing what" column - an action you would NEVER do, or a funny action. -- then you read line by line and it turns out to be hilarious!
there is this fun game i like to play in the car i am not sure what its called but what you do is you have to find each of the letters in the alphabet in order its like a race the first person to find all the letters is the winner oh and it has to be at the begging of the word.
-You can bring a portable d.v.d player and watch movies - or play games on your i-pod - or play I Spy -or listen to music -or bring up something funny that you or your siblings did as a child and talk about that -or you can play a game of cards -find a notepad and play hangman, or tic tac toe or s.o.s if you know how to play that -you can write your own mad libs -create a funny story by going back and forth each person saying a word
The embarrassment game. Level 1 - Wave to someone in a car that drives by. Level 2 - Give call me signs to someone in a car driving by. And keep making up levels. Or the laughing game. Whoever laughs first loses.
Hmmm... Let Me see... I GOT IT! You should play one of these: POU, VIRDUAL PET, YOUTUBE, Or fly like a bird. Got it? put it on a list or somthing... I hope this will help enjoy it on youre Phone, Ipod, Iphone, Tablet, Or Laptop
I call this game, Loaded! It works like this.Have all car windows closed. a/c on. Then everyone farts. The person who holds the longest breathe in, wins. LOL! Of course, anyone can still fart while everybody holds their breathes.... LOL!
so this is like a memory game starting with the letter A think of a grocery item like anchovies. then keep going with the rest of the alphabet. but dont just say the next letter, you have to recite all the items from the beginning.
If its more than one person, you can challenge each other to make a short song using a random word you or the other person chose. If its just you, you can just think of a place you would like to visit each time you pass a sign or something similar.
