Tips For Making Your Family Vacation Travel Fun

     If you are planning a vacation this year, why not add to the fun by also planning a few entertaining travel activities? Although many people immediately think of games designed to be played in the car when they hear the phrase "travel games," there are also many games and activities that can be enjoyed outside of the car. Although car games can certainly help pass the time, it can also be a lot of fun to give everyone a chance to have a bit of fun during rest stops, or even after you have reached your destination. Here are a few ideas you can try to make your vacation just a bit more fun.

Vacation Photo Challenge

If everyone in your family has their own camera, it can be fun to have a family vacation photo challenge. While on vacation, encourage everyone to take plenty of photos of the attractions you visit. Once you get back home, you can have a family photo competition. After everyone prints and displays their very best photos, you can have a judging competition to choose the best ones. It can be fun to have several different judging categories, such as a prize for the funniest photo, most artistic photo, or best animal photo. That way, more than one family member can win a prize. After the winning photos are chosen, you can display them in picture frames in a place of honor in your home. If you'd like, you could also award inexpensive ribbons or small prizes to the photo contest winners for added fun and excitement.

Vacation Reporter

If you or your children enjoy writing, turn everyone into news reporters on your next vacation. Give everyone a notebook so that they can take notes and write stories about the places you visit. These stories can be fun to read together as a family. When you get home, you might even want to create a vacation newsletter or book by utilizing everyone's stories. These stories would also make interesting journal entries in your vacation scrapbook. There are even companies that will transform your pictures and stories into a professionally bound book. If you shop around carefully, you'll find that this can cost less than you might expect. You can also create collages from some of your stories and photos, displaying them in picture frames as wall art for your home.

Fun Travel Car Games

Of course, no vacation is really complete without a few fun car games to play along the way. Whether you choose a word hunt games for the kids or enjoy a good game of car bingo while traveling, it can make the car ride much more enjoyable. If your children are always asking "Are we there yet?" try taking their mind off of the long trip with a few games that you can play together. Try looking for objects that start with each letter of the alphabet, or make up funny stories about the sights that you see. Before you know it, you'll be at your destination.
