If you want to go on a holiday with kids, unless you are looking at a fly option, ultimately your holiday will involve some amount of car travel. Travelling with kids can be an experience and a half – and there is one thing which you really need to be – and that is organised.
It doesn’t take long for kids to start saying “are we there yet?” or “I’m bored!” so you need to have a variety of in-car entertainment to keep them amused. While entertainment systems are great – don’t forget the basics of childhood fun. Pens, pencils, paper and activity books can provide hours of entertainment both when travelling and upon arrival at the destination.
Our Personalised Car Organisers are great value at $19.95 and will help keep the kids amused and store their goodies all within arm’s reach. With an adjustable strap, it will fit to any model of car that features headrests.
Don’t forget to pack the snacks as there is nothing worse than cries of “I’m hungry” especially when there is nothing you can do to help. Have a range of snacks available to keep those hunger pangs at bay and don’t forget the water, although you may want to limit the liquid consumption to avoid multiple bathroom stops.
Make sure you take time in your trip to allow the kids to stretch their legs and run about as necessary. You could even do a lunch stop in a park or picnic area to allow everyone the opportunity to relax and unwind before you continue on your way.
Play music that the whole family will enjoy and ensure you have a couple of fun surprises that will win you some more quiet time when signs of fussiness start.
Car travel is a great way to spend time with your kids so make the most of it – and don’t forget to have fun!
