When we go on long car trips we usually pack a few small toys (dino crayons like the ones in the photo above double as toys and crayons! – affiliate link), some books, stickers, pens and pencils along with the kids’ journals and some drawing activities.
We do take screens and devices, and we love audio books too, but for long trips the kids need more than just a screen to stare at, so having a stash of ‘car friendly’ activities will make the road trip a lot less stressful for everyone.
For a recent long trip I made up some new drawing prompts that are perfect for a road trip.
Free Printable Road Trip Drawing Prompts.
Drawing prompts are a great way to encourage reluctant drawers. They give a starting point to spark the imagination, but still allow for lots of free thinking and creativity.
There is no right or wrong ways to draw with these prompts. If your child wants to draw a herd of purple elephants coming down the road, or a sign that says ‘no parents allowed’ that’s awesome! Just let them enjoy the process.
Does the road end at a castle? Or maybe it goes to the beach?
Download the ‘Where does the road go?’ drawing prompt here.
What will your speed sign say? What new sign could you create?
Download the ‘Make your own road signs.’ drawing prompt here.
Are there boxes of chocolates in the back of the truck? Or maybe a zoo animal??
Download the ‘What’s in the truck?’ drawing prompt here.
Is there a car coming down the road? Or perhaps there is a group of monkeys riding bikes?
Download the ‘Who is driving down the road?’ drawing prompt here.
