Children in the back of a car

by Ryan Gilmore |

Long car trips can be arduous for children and boredom can quickly set in. I remember sitting in the back of my dad's Audi 80 with a broken cassette player that only played ABBA just wishing for something to do. Nowadays, there are smartphones and tablets to keep kids entertained, but there are still some good old fashioned ways to keep them busy on a long journey.

The humble travel game is not only a welcome break from looking at a screen but a fun way to help your children develop new skills and pass time. We've selected our favourite travel games for kids and listed them below.
