With holiday season just around the corner, WLM thought it would be great to get travel tips from our panel of experts – YOU!
Check out what fellow parents and seasoned travelers had to say:
@actoneparties have several short activities for the journey that preschoolers can dip in and out of to stop them getting bored.
@jorobertscopy If travelling long distances by car I highly recommend a DVD player and another must-have item: a portable black-out blind!
@RichmondNCT Gro-bag fabric high chair great when travelling with baby. Not everywhere has high chairs. Always get asked where it’s from
@Miniminstrel My 9 year old girl keeps a log book of all the Eddie Stobart lorry names and where she spotted them!
@kerryjphoto I always buy both my daughters a kids ‘magazine’ which keeps them busy whilst traveling!
@verybusymama if you are traveling without the other parent, have them video themselves reading a story or talking to them. Also video your child at home doing that they like to do and then play it back them. They like it better than cartoons!
@sweetheartstu 1 of the best things we’ve had – ‘Things To Do On A Journey’ cards Daughter has loved them from age 4 to 8!
@HopperTots LON-Australia with 20mo – iPad!
@monsterscantalk I always buy a little present for each child when flying and wrap it up and give it when we have taken off. Works a treat!
@westlondon_mum always board the plane last, unconventional, but the less time spent in a cramped seat – the better. Let the kids run around and tucker themselves out as much as possible!
Do you have any advice? We’d love to hear from you!
