When done right, road trips can be fun. Yet packing up for a long road trip is often stressful. Add to that thought of spending hours in a car with a cranky family, and suddenly, this family vacation doesn’t seem like such a great idea.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Our family knows two things very well—road trips and games. We moved 17 hours away from our family a couple of years ago. As a result, we have now become experts at long car rides.
I grew up playing games, and since that’s my favorite pastime, my kids have grown up with games too. I love family games because they build incredible memories, bring everyone to the same space, and create room for conversation.
