Family-Friendly Games to Play in the Car

When you hit the road, whether it be for a quick trip around Bellefontaine, Ohio, or a full-blown road trip across the country, it’s wise to have different solutions for keeping your family entertained.  If you’re looking for a couple of new ways to occupy your children in the car, consider these family-friendly games.

Word-by-word improv

Not only will this game encourage your kids’ creativity, but it will also almost certainly make you laugh. The rules are simple: you start by saying one to three words, then pass the continuation of the sentence off to your backseat passengers, who will take turns adding a few words to the story. By the end, the story will have turned in directions you never imagined, and you’ll have covered numerous miles without realizing it.

A good old-fashioned singalong

It doesn’t matter if your kids are into musicals, animated movies or classic rock, singing along with a song you all love is a fun way to pass the time. Consider bringing along a variety of music so you can cater to everyone’s tastes. If you have older kids, turn the singalong into a game by having each family member sing a line from a different song. The last word of your song’s line should then be the first word of another family member’s line, and so on.

No matter where you’re headed, laughing and passing the time with your family is an experience to be treasured. If you think your car needs service before your next road trip, don’t hesitate to contact us at Steve Austin’s Auto Group.

Updated Design for the 2021 Colorado

The Chevrolet Colorado is a popular mid-size truck, thanks to its impressive capability and features. Recently, Chevrolet unveiled the up-and-coming 2021 Colorado and showed exciting new updates coming to the model.

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado first appeared in public on Oct. 10 at the Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic. At the SEMA show in Las Vegas, Chevrolet will debut the 2021 Colorado ZR2.

Each Colorado model will have trims that are more distinct from each other for the 2021 model year. In addition, the Z71, LT and WT trims will receive updated front skid plates, center bars and lower fascias. The Z71 trim will feature a black bowtie logo, while the LT and WT trims will come with new gold Chevrolet bowtie logos.

Great for off-roading, the ZR2 trim will have a new flow-through “Chevrolet” front fascia that’s lettered. The new front end not only gives the truck a bolder look but also helps improve visibility for the driver. This trim will also offer front and rear electronic locking differentials, a 2-inch suspension lift, off-road rocker protection and multiple skid plates.

We at Steve Austin’s Auto Group are excited for the new 2021 Chevrolet Colorado. Stop by our dealership for a test drive in one of our other Chevrolet trucks.
