10 (More) Things to Do in the Car (Travel Thursday ~ BAB Takeover Week August 2020)

Hello friends! We have another list of ideas of what to do in the car for you today! I encourage you to check out our first list here. Anyway, without further ado, let’s get onto the list!


You can plan along the way. Whether you’re planning things to do on your trip, or something else, this can be a great way to utilize your time in the car.


I mean, sometimes there’s nothing better to do? And if you’re going on a particularly long trip, you’ll probably have to sleep at some point.

Make Friendship Bracelets

Friendship bracelets can be tedious, but tedious is perfect for long car rides!

Woah, that photo quality is bad.


In the same vein, crocheting/knitting can take forever. But, if you know how, it can be a great thing to try during a long road trip. Bonus, you might get a cool sweater out of it.


This is especially a good idea on your way home from a trip. You can look at this post for travel journaling ideas. I think this is a really good idea, because who’d want to go on a trip and not document it?

Play Video Games

This would be so fun! I mean, I know it isn’t likely to pack up a game console and a TV or anything, but you can totally download some games to your phone. It can be a fun way to pass the time.

Play Car Games

I know I mentioned car games in my last post, but I came up with some more games! One of which, you can count the different makes of cars and see which one has the most.

Eat and Drink

Kind of like sleeping, you’re going to have to do this at some point during your long drive.

Stop at Noteable Places

I know this one doesn’t make the drive go any quicker, but it’s fun! Other than just being nice to get out of the car and stretch your legs, you can see cool sights sometimes.

Find New Music

I think it’s really fun to discover new music on a trip. The really cool part of this is that you’ll associate certain songs with your trip if you do this.

Anyway, that’s all I have for you today! I hope you found some new car activities. Let me know which of these were your favorite!

  1. Love these ideas! Aww I used to love crocheting when I was younger 🙂 but come to think of it, I don’t think I ever did on a car ride. That would be fun!
    My brother and I used to enjoy playing games on his tablet on long drives. Our favorite was called Drive Ahead where we were competing for the most points! The game was discontinued a few years ago which made me so sad. *RIP Drive Ahead*
    One thing that made finding things to do during a car ride challenging was my motion sickness. I couldn’t really read or write comfortably.
    Ooh I just remembered a game I would play! I’d bring a notepad then write down all the different colored cars I saw 🙂 I’d also have a section for tractor trailers, motorcycles, etc. That was really fun!

    1. Thank you!
      That’s cool.
      Aw, that’s too bad it got discontinued.
      Oof, that can be a pain. Motion sickness is no fun.
      Ooh, that does sound fun!
      Thank you for commenting!
