Boarding in early morning flights can spare you from delays at take-off or landing due to heavy air traffic. Also, your children will be fast asleep for the better part of the trip, so you can enjoy a few moments with your partner without having to worry about the little ones.
Often, small children suffer from road sickness or tend to throw up during flights. Keeping this important information in mind, you should start packing at least a week before your trip because you are likely to keep missing out adding something or the other in your backpack.
Extra pair of clothes, bin bags, water bottles, snacks, medicines, earplugs, tissues, and small board games are a few necessities that should be available within your reach while you are traveling with your family.
Small board games and stuffed toys can keep your children engaged while you are covering long distances by road or by air. And, to cut away the boredom and monotony of the journey, you can take part in their games or engage them in fun activities to enjoy happy family time on the go.
7. Snacks and shakes within easy reach
Again, hunger is something that makes us all go cranky and fussy in the head. And, you can expect the worst outbursts from the tiny tots if they are on the verge of starving. This goes without any saying that holidays make us hungry and thirsty all the time. We need some easy snacks to munch away the idle time while enjoying the view outside.
Make sure your bag has sufficient snacks and shakes or water to appease those hungry monsters every time they pull up their long, grumpy faces.
8. Include fun activities in your itinerary
Kids and tiny tots love to play. Give then the time and space to enjoy a playtime during the trip. They enjoy traveling but not minus their playtime. It is always better to look for accommodations where there is a separate play area with a pool for little children to jump and mess around. Look out for amusement parks where you can stop by to give a few hours of fun time to your children.
Also, carry a small board or card games to keep them entertained while you are traveling by road.
If you want peace, games and fun activities are best to keep their minds at ease. 9. Maintain the same routine as you do back home
Breaking routines once in a while is always fun especially when you are holidaying with your family. In fact, it is never easy to observe the same schedule when you are out of your homes. But, breaking the time-table can affect your little ones especially when they have fixed meals and napping time.
Younger the kids, the more important the routine is for them, so try and maintain that on your trip.
10. Expect the unexpected
Expect the unexpected
When you are traveling with kids, things are bound to go wrong and your carefully penned down plan may not work every time. So, it is better to expect the unexpected to happen especially when you have small children to take care of. Chances are that you might end up missing your bus to a specific location or end up losing your iPhone…do not stress yourself. There is nothing much you can do if the famous restaurant you planned to dine during your stay, stays closed due to ongoing renovations.
Just accept the inevitable and keep your stress in the cold storage while you enjoy those free days with your family.
