Campervan Games

Mobile phones and tablets provide lots of entertainment for passengers on long drives, however, the ‘family time’ that comes with going campervanning is slightly lost – and the driver is left out! Playing group games while driving is a great way to keep entertained and enjoy some family time. The classic I Spy is always a great starting game when you’ve been driving in your camper for a long time to keep kids…and adults entertained. However, soon comes the question, ‘what other road trip games can we play?’ Here are our top 5 games that you can play (after I Spy!) while on a road trip in your VW campervan! Don’t hesitate to bend and create your own rules to keep the games and the journey exciting!
