Holiday Travel Tips
When it comes to traveling with kids during the holidays, trips should be an enjoyable experience for all. While there is no sure-fire way to ensure that everyone is kept happy, Babideal has some holiday travel tips to make your next vacation more organized, enjoyable, & stress-free.
- Bring items that can be used multiple ways:
Traveling typically means limited space. By choosing to bring multi-use items, you not only save space, but carry less. Whether it’s a multi-use pocket knife during a camping trip, a playard while visiting family, or a travel system while on a road trip, multi-use options help minimize items needed.
- Pack light:
Packing light seems to be a given when it comes to traveling, however, packing light takes on a different meaning when you have kids. Make sure you are making the most of your space with your every day items. The Monbebe Cube is the perfect stroller to accompany you on trips with kids. With a weight of only 12 lbs, the Cube won’t weigh you down.
- Pack games + toys
Whether it’s a game of ‘I Spy’ or simply bringing a portable gaming system, having games + toys ensures that boredom is kept at a low.
- Create an agenda:
While some people prefer the go-with-the-flow mentality, having an agenda is the perfect solution to reducing stress levels. Benjamin Franklin once said that ‘by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.’ Whether it’s planning meals, choosing outfits, or determining your budget, even the smallest amount of preparation is better than nothing.
- Let the kids choose:
When you take kids out of their routine, it can wreak havoc. If traveling with kids is problematic for your family, offer to let the kids be a part of smaller decisions, like which restaurant to stop at on a road trip or which museum they would like to go to. Limit options to what is reasonable and fair, and watch your children’s excitement as they get to choose.
