Whether you're traveling far away, or just around the corner this holiday season, try some silly car games to keep your children entertained. For example, in the game "What Am I?" each person in the car takes a turn describing an animal, insect, or object without naming it. Then, the other family members or car companions try to guess what it is by asking questions. The "Tell a Silly Story" game involves each family member adding a silly sentence to a unique, utterly imaginative story that changes every time you tell it!
What silly car game did your family play in the car today?

We play this game my oldest came up with.
It's called "I own".

I sing to my baby while we're in the car.

We didn't play any today but we regularly play I Spy, the alphabet game, the counting game, and a few others.

We will do the alphabet game with license plates or count how many color cars or types of cars/vans trucks we see.

It is more of a learning game as far as helping her learn to count. We went to breakfast this morning and counted cars as they went by.

sometimes my kids will pretend they are in a sub and we are under water, or they are on a boat and there are waves after them. It is pretty funny. We play i spy amd games like that. If we are going where we have been a bunch of times like the mall or just to the store I will make a list of things for the kids to be on the look out for like a street sign or a building with a certain something on it. They like those games.
we play I spy, or yellow car . . . yellow car my little cousin use to play and you get points based on what type of yello car you spot . . .
Car (sprts car or family car) - 1 pt
Beetle - 2 pts
SUV - 3 pts
Jeep - 4 pts
Hummer - 5 pts
at the end of the trip everyone totals the poits and the winner is supposed to get first choice on seats on the next drive . . . since my kids are all in car seats we don't use the points yet and everyone is still a winner . . .
