We all know travelling with children can be a stressful ordeal, however here at Latedeals we have it covered. Factoring a child’s needs into your travels involves a lot more than popping on a CD filled with Disney songs and toilet breaks. Whether you’re travelling to Majorca or taking a long break to the Caribbean we have these perfect tips that will keep the children occupied throughout the flight.
Make sure only one person is in charge of packing, at least this way you won’t arrive with millions of bikinis and no knickers! Roll your clothes to avoid creases. For the little ones pack colouring books, pens and crayons to keep them happy and don’t forget to pack your child’s favourite toy!
TAKE YOUR TIME
Time is the best thing you can take with you. Make sure you have plenty of time to get to the airport there is nothing worse than being late and rushing around. Whilst at the airport take the children to see the planes, let them let some steam off.
IN THE AIR
The actual flight can be the most stressful part for a parent as the children can become restless. Get the pens and paper out to let them doodle. If your child has a tablet make sure you have downloaded child friendly apps, also see if you can download any of your child’s favourite movies.
Remember your children are on holiday as well. Getting your children involved will not only make your time easier but gives them great memories. If you have a child friendly camera let your child have it after all they are tourist too! Always try and encourage children to play and interact with other children.
Travelling provides the best family time for you and your family. From the second you leave your home you are together, sharing the experience.
