Keep a small bag with just the essential tidbits with you all the time – children clothes, wet wipes, diapers, small towel, a disinfectant, band-aids and a plastic bag. If you are traveling by car you can easily keep it in the car.
Encourage your kids to find out about the place you are going to. It will have them all excited about the places they would like to visit and they can decide the activities they would like to do.
Keep small souvenirs of your holiday together as keepsakes – postcards, tickets brochures etc. Ask your children to make a collage of all these things along with pictures in a small little scrapbook.
If you are planning a holiday as a group with your friends or relatives, take out time to discuss all the basics.
Before-hand – what everyone would like to do, whether you want to explore the place together or separately, whether you’ll have meals together or not; because these small misunderstandings can spoil the fun.
Pack a stroller because it just might come in handy as sometimes children can get tired even if they are big and it’ll be useful in carrying those heavy bags.
Ensure that your carry enough drinks because children can easily get dehydrated from all the running around.
Do pack these to keep your children busy and entertained:
Coloring books and crayons/pencils, books with puzzles, handheld game console, play-dough and other small travel games like connect etc.
Hope you enjoy yourselves this vacation and bring back lots of happy memories.
