Travel Hints for Yuletide

By Jasmine Brown

Christmas period frequently means traveling to grandma’s or a family party. You can make these trips less stressful when you have children along by following a few of these tips.

Traveling with children often insists that you become an expert yarn spinner, comic, actor, or sorcerer in order to keep peace and make the time pass faster. Here are some age suitable tips for you to use on your next holiday trip. First of all if you have a baby or two, make journeys easier with a single or double snap and go stroller.

Babies enjoy taking a look at bright objects that have engaging shapes, or are pop-up tops, and also mirrors and rattles are favourite amusers as well.

Children will be kept busy with hand puppets, shape sorters of all sorts, board books, musical toys (that won't irritate you), and plastic boxes that kid can simply open themselves and close. Keep play objects in them that are not too little (choking). A coloring book and corpulent crayons are great entertainment.

Preschoolers like to unwrap boxes that contain special surprises for them to play with like magnetic numeral digits and letters on a metal tray, picture books, candy to devour, or mirrors and stuffed creatures.

Younger school-aged kids love to work with activity books that have stickers in them, felt boards, modeling clay, action figures or dolls and preserved creatures.

Older kids can use travel-size board games or hand-held electronic games, magazines or books, or automobile games like finding certain state license plates or counting coloured autos, or store signs. Kids have great imaginations and can sometimes amuse themselves on long auto rides by playing these vehicle games like “I-Spy” – identifying something along the landscape that could be a certain colour or shape.

It is a clever idea to take along music CDs or books on tape for hours of fun value. Some favored series are: Mad Sing Alongs, Babe Tunes, music by Joe Scruggs, Raffi or hits that you remember from The Beatles, or Broadway or Hitsville USA: The Motown Singles or a popular youngsters group: Sharon, Louis and Bram. Taking a variety of music will provide help to use the time not only for the youngsters but for the adults as well. Audio books can be not only entertaining but learning experience as well especially if you are traveling far and can find an audio book about your destination.

Plenty of the vehicles now have built in DVD machines for hours of motion picture entertainment.

Car trips can bring your family closer together by making this unique time of sharing and doing stuff together. You can share with each other jokes, tell stories, and talk of what is happening in your lives.

Make errands with babies easier with a Black Jeep Double Umbrella Stroller or Blue Schwinn Turismo Double Jogging Stroller.
