Are you looking for printable travel games to keep your family entertained while on a road trip? An upgrade on the classic road trip activity – this printable license plate game includes a map of both the United States and Canada. Kids can color or check off States and Provinces from as they see them!
To prepare for a 10 hour road trip to my grandparents house, I searched for some screen-free entertainment for my kids. We have tried lots of verbal games including the letter game and license plate game, but I needed a way to make the game stretch out for a longer amount of time. Honestly, I probably couldn’t get all 50 states from memory if I wanted to. Also, as my family lives in Canada, I wanted something that included the Canadian Provinces as well. So I decided to make my own printable license plate games.
Included in these printable games is a map and a written checklist. Whichever way you choose to play, its a fun way to learn geography and (best of all) keep the arguments at bay.
These license plate game maps were a big hit with my kids. One really liked coloring in each state he found, while another just wanted to check the boxes with the names. My nephew tried to label each state capital and quiz everyone on which states we knew.
