Travelling with kids? Having a time packing their things? Afraid that if packing can get so hard, how hard will the actually journey be?
Read below for some tips!
Pack the essentials
You will need to first list down the essentials that you will need to carry with you for your kids. You need to ensure that you take everything from their clothes to their favourite toys to other essentials like pampers and wipes if you have little one. Feed bottles and cups too will be some essentials of the little ones. It is of course going to be one of the most difficult task packing everything your kid might or most likely will need! Therefore the easiest way to decide what to take is by writing down everything and then cutting off those that you don’t think are extremely necessary.
Take breaks in between
If you are going on a very long drive, then it is best that you have breaks in between. Because the kids will have a very hard time sitting in one place in the same positions for very long periods of time. Although it may extend the time period of your journey, you will have a more peaceful ride if you allow your kids to let out some energy by getting off the vehicle once in a way. If you have kids who are prone to vehicle then too this will do the trick. And for such kids make sure that you have a bag in handy! Or you will have to continue the rest of the journey smelling like vomit! You can even stop at a fine dining spots to treat yourself for traveling with the kids!
Keep them distracted
You need to keep the kids distracted from fighting against one another or in some cases from throwing up. You can get them to play a game of scrabble with you inside the vehicle. All you need to do is to ensure that you take off their stress from the long drive by engaging them in conversations or playing games with them to lighten up their moods. You can even take them to one of the best restaurants in Adelaide Hills in town to appreciate their good behavior.
Avoid consuming food inside the car
It is best that you avoid consuming food inside the car, because you will not only have to clean all the spills and stains. But you might even have to deal with the kids throwing up due to bumpy rides. Most kids are unable to travel without throwing up as soon as they ate. So, always get out of the car before consuming the food!
