Having young children at home is synonymous with constant activity and changes. Since a little one arrives home, routines are different in every way, from meal times to family trips. To make your vacation with the kids a success, the most important thing is a good organization.
Tips for traveling with children under 5 years old
1. Make a list of everything you will need during the trip and prepare the luggage following it. In this way you not only avoid leaving something forgotten, but do not overload the suitcases with clothes or accessories that will not be useful in your destination.
2. You should also take time to choose the destination you will go to. For this you must bear in mind that the accommodation options offered by the places you are interested in are adapted to carry small children or that you have holiday apartments for your stay. You must also evaluate the activities you can do to make sure you can do them with your children.
Young children get tired of walking long distances or going to museums that do not have special areas for them, so it is important that you take these details into account when choosing.
3. Another important detail to decide before leaving is the means of transportation you will use for it. If children are very small they may need many more accessories that take up space like the stroller. In these cases it is best to travel by car, because it will be more comfortable to move with lots of luggage. If children no longer need a stroller and can go to the bathroom alone, you can choose to travel by train or plane, so you can expand the area of possible destinations to visit.
Find the best routes for children
The round trip can be very heavy for children. Spending many hours sitting in a small space causes them to become restless and irritable. Think of activities you can do with them while you travel to keep them entertained and make the trip more enjoyable for everyone. If you go by plane or train, take crayons and coloring books and if you go by car, teach them funny songs or play counting cars, in this way, besides playing, they learn.
Take medicine for seasickness and enough bags. Sometimes trips cause discomfort in children, so be cautious and prepare for a possible unforeseen event. And if you travel by car, make frequent stops so that the children can stretch their legs and so that the driver can rest, in this way the driving will be much safer.
During the holidays with the children, the goal is to enjoy without being distracted
If you have done a good pre-trip planning, your holidays will be full of good times. Even so it is important that you do not neglect yourself and that you do not take your eyes off of your children. There are children who are shy and do not leave their parents when they go to a new place, but there are others who are very curious and want to see everything, so they can sometimes separate from their parents without realizing it. You must have all the senses put in what your children do so as not to lose sight of them and thus avoid a fright.
During the holidays, do not change your children's sleep schedules, so when they return they will not have to adapt to the daily routine. Watch what they eat and avoid giving them meals that can be heavy for them so they do not have digestive problems that cloud an ideal vacation.
Children really enjoy family vacations. They are perfect moments to reinforce the bond between parents and children and to fill albums with good memories. A good organization and eager to enjoy every moment of the holidays are the guarantee of perfect days with your little ones.
