10 Things To Do On A Car Ride

With these things, car rides don't have to be so bad

10 Things To Do On A Car Ride

My whole life has consisted of traveling, which meant so much time riding in the car. One time I went from SC to Ohio and it took like 14 hours. So I've learned ways to make the rides more fun and bearable.

1. Watch a movie

Some cars have built in DVD players but even if yours doesn't and you have a laptop with a disc drive then grab your favorite movie and you won't even realize how long you've been riding.

2. Listen to music

Make a playlist, put the earphones in and lay back.

3. Color

Bring one coloring book because there are so many pages and bring markers because they won't melt.

4. Edit photos

I like photography so for me this is a perfect time to mess around with my photos.

5. Take random pictures

Whether it be pictures of others, things going on in the car, things outside the car or selfies.

6. Car games

Fun for everyone in the car: I spy, license plates, 20 questions, alphabet categories. As far as I know, games is one my family and I made up...most of the time my dad will give me and my sister a color and the person to get the designated number of items of that color, wins.

7. Do a mad lib

The stories and laughs are worth the ride.

8. Read a book

This will only last a little while for me because for some odd reason I begin to feel sick. But if it works for you then who knows how many books you can get through.

9. Eat

Some of my favorite road snacks are Slim Jims, Rice Krispies, most chips, and one of the best creations ever- Chex Mix muddy buddies cookies and creme. Just be smart in preparing what to bring, make sure it won't melt.

10. Sleep

This is my favorite because you feel like you've been going longer than you actually have. Plus for me, I get to catch up on the sleep I've missed and get to do nothing.
