We have one more month to travel with our kids before school starts. What do your plans include? We hope these helpful tips make your trip more enjoyable!
Top 5 tips for traveling with kids;
Comfort = happy traveler Dress comfortable and in layers. If you have an infant pack pacifiers and bottles. This helps their ears adjust to cabin pressure.
Time = happy traveler Give yourself plenty of time to check in and get to the gate. Running through the airport with three kids in tow is not fun! If it’s a road trip you’re on, expect more frequent stops for kids to stretch and play.
Entertainment = happy traveler Have a magic bag of tricks : Each kid has their own special back pack with snacks, chewing gum or gummy bears (to help ears adjust to cabin pressure) , electronics (iPod, iPad, or Leapster), a good book, a small blanket or pillow. Our 4 year old likes a color book and crayons. Also some kids may have anxiety about flying. Pack a favorite toy or stuffed animal to comfort them. These items are also nice for down time in the hotel room.
Adventure = happy traveler Talk about your trip, calling it “Your Adventure” ; where are we going , what kind of travel adventure do they want ? Some kids like to know what to expect, it helps ease any anxiety they may have about their upcoming travel.
If your family needs help planning a getaway don’t hesitate to call us. We would be glad to get your adventure started.
