Well, here are some of the top car trip games you can play with your kids to keep them distracted in the car.

There are always many things on the road to spy and it will keep your toddler interested in searching for these items. For instance, I spy with my little eye, something blue will force your preschooler to look for something blue.
2. License Plate Game
If you are going on a long road trip, you will come across cars from different states. Therefore, ask your kids to write down each state in every license plate that you pass by on the road.
