Save Yourself from Boredom During Long Car Rides

Most of us have had to go on a long road trip at some point in our lives. There is nothing worse than being stuck in a car for a long period of time with nothing to do but twiddle your thumbs. If you're like me and need things to do to pass the time here are a few ideas.

1. Listen to Music


Listening to your favorite tunes can pass the time super quickly.

2. Take a Nap


Taking a nap will make that trip go by in the blink of an eye.

3. Read a Book


Lean back in your seat and jump into your newest read.

4. Draw or Doodle


Whip out your sketchbook and doodle your heart out.

5. Play Car Games


Get the other people in the car to play a game with you. ( 20 questions, I-Spy, Car Tag Poker, etc.)

6. Watch a Movie


Put a movie on, kick back, and relax.

7. Sing your Heart Out


Crank up the tunes and sing along with your friends.

8. Take Pictures


Remember the memories you are making by snapping some photos during your trip.

9. Talk to Each Other


When in doubt, just talk to each other. Conversations can carry on for hours and hours so take the time to bond with your fellow car-mate.
