To keep the kids and possibly yourself occupied on long road trips, try turning off your electronic screens once in a while and bring out the Auto Bingo travel game from Kids Love Travel. Each reusable game card requires the player to spot different items they might see on the journey, such as road signs, vehicle types (police car, fire truck, bus, etc.), buildings, animals and so on. And there’s no need for tokens or messy markers to keep score, you simply slide a tinted plastic cover over the image. Choose from traffic safety, interstate and general-interest themes. A set of four Auto Bingo cards sells for $8 plus shipping. Order Auto Bingo at
