Pulling off a great family vacation requires a lot of planning, patience and effort. You’ll get better at all this, the more you travel. Here are the top tips for having a great time while traveling with children.
Give Them a Camera
Giving a child their own (robust, child-friendly) camera encourages them to observe their surroundings and focus on what interests them. You might be surprised at the results from their knee-high view.
Digital Toy Box
Thanks to child-friendly apps, there’s no need to cram a toy box into your hand luggage when travelling by plane. By all means take a book and a magic scribbler, but the most compact form of entertainment is a device loaded with apps and games.
Invest in a Child Locator
Children aren’t fans of reins, backpacks with a leash. Keep tabs on them anywhere with a child locator. The child wears a small “electronic device” (strapped to a belt or shoe) and you keep the transmitter. If you lose your child, set off the alarm and follow the sound to find them.
Trying to retain the spontaneity of travel before having children doesn’t pay off. If you arrive at your destination to find you can’t get a room and have to hit the road again with tired, hungry children melting down in the backseat.
By using these tips as a guideline, you can better organize and prepare for your trip. Stay tuned to Travel Tip Tuesdays for more in-depth information about the best way to travel.
