Road trip conversation starters for kids is a great way to pass the time, connect, and learn something new about your child.
I come from a BIG Italian family, so when we do a road trip you know kids are going to be involved. And as an adult, you can help set the atmosphere for a fun trip for the kids, which will lead down to some good memories.
In the world we live in we are bombarded with electronics. And having them in the car for a long trip can be a life saver.
But taking the time to have some fun topics to talk about can really help kids discover things about themselves, learn about you, and learn healthy conversational skills.
And the flip side you will learn a lot about them. It’s a win-win. Plus you might get out of hearing the dreaded… “Are we there yet?”
I also have a list of fun conversation starters for adults. They are still PG but some questions kids might not understand. But you can check them out here:

Conversation Starters for Kids – Road Trip Edition
“Road trips are the equivalent of human wings. Ask me to go on one, anywhere. We’ll stop in every small town and learn the history and stories, feel the ground and capture the spirit. Then we’ll turn it into our own story that will live inside our history to carry with us, always. Because stories are more important than things.” – Victoria Erickson
