Are We There Yet Great Resources For Traveling With Kids
Traveling with kids is always an adventure, but for anyone who has ever been on a long car trip with children, help has finally arrived in the form of America's Best Value Inn's link called, 'Are We There Yet?'. "Are We There Yet", which you can find at http://sev.prnewswire.com/travel/20060308/CLW00508032006-1.
html, includes advice for parents on how to make a family vacation an adventure for the kids too, without demolishing your budget. It has everything from packing a suitcase and pre-vacation car safety, to creative ways to reward good behavior and prevent carsickness. The site also features activities, card game rules, sing-along songs, trivia, memory games, and educational activities that parents can print in advance to keep their children entertained while on the road."The printable games and activities on this site promote family interaction," said Peter Frantz, Marketing Director.
"Being stuck in a car for an extended period is the perfect time to ask kids to put down the electronic devices and interact with the rest of the family. The time spent traveling together is what they'll remember when they are adults.".A second great site is at travelsense.org, which gives advice like items the smart parent should stock for a roadtrip with kids.
It also suggests involving the kids in saving items along the way for a scrapbook they can assemble later. You can visit this site at: http://www.travelsense.org/tips/children.
asp.Sally at sallys-place.com has been through it all, and has some great ideas to share with other traveling parents. Her mantra is new toys and books. She says that newness counts for a lot and she always packs a bag of small new toys so she can pull them out whenever the long car or airplane ride seems to be getting to the kids.
Read Sally's top ten list of advice for traveling with children at: http://www.sallys-place.com/travel/with-kids/topten/.Then there is momsminivan.
com. This gal is really organized! She has included over 101 ideas for fun things for kids to do in the car. At her site you will find printable car games and activities as well as a plethora (I just love using the word, "plethora") of ideas organized by age group.At keepkidshealthy.com, the advice is generally related to air travel with kids. One thing I learned here that I hadn't ever considered before was the benefits of having layovers or flying into small regional airports when traveling with kids.
The layovers, she says, give kids a chance to get the "wigglies" out, while the smaller airports have smaller crowds and friendlier employees. Check out this site at: http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/parenting_tips/flying_with_kids.html.Finally, I was surprised at how good a resource Southwest Airlines has on their website.
The section called "Taking The Kids" is full of informative articles on things like traveling as a single parent, getting a sitter away from home, making a museum excursion fun and even tips for grandparents flying alone with the kids. Surprisingly, these articles are not all about air travel but also include some good advice for when you travel by car. http://www.
