A long road trip can get boring rather quickly. It can be especially tough for kids that seemingly have an unlimited supply of energy. If you don’t want them climbing all over your vehicle through your next 2-hour road trip, you have to give them something that will hold their attention.
One of the ways you can do that is by giving them a song to sing. Songs like “99 Bottles Of Milk On The Wall” (we won’t use sing about beer with the kids) and “The Wheels On The Bus” song video are great for these types of road trips because they can go on indefinitely.
To sing the wheels on the bus song video, for example, all it takes is for someone to spot out something they see along the drive and you can insert it into the next verse. You can keep doing this indefinitely, which is why it makes for such a great road trip song.
These are fun sing-along nursery rhymes that are great for big groups to get together and sing, such as a car full, or a bus full of people. It’s a repetitive song that leaves the door open for a lot of creative thinking and ideas. It was originally written to fight off the boredom of long school trips, and it is still used today.
Getting Creative with the Song
A good song for a longer trip follows the same verse and format indefinitely, but it gives you the option to change the subject and action each time. To give you another example, the “99 Bottles Of Milk On The Wall” song starts with a high number and goes down one with each verse.
