Planning a family vacation can be both enjoyable and stressful. It can be fun to decide where you want to go and choose all of the things that you want to do. But faced with accommodation issues for the whole family or the logistics of the flight with a couple of kids can feel overwhelming. Quite often it will be one person taking charge of the planning, and the rest of the family just turns up. But have you ever thought about getting your kids to help and getting them involved in the whole vacation planning process? Here are some tips and tricks to get your children involved, and to help them to help you.
Our children won’t know where they want to visit or won’t know what things to see and do if they have never heard of places before. So as part of their schooling or nighttime reading, choose some books that are based on different countries to amaze and inspire them. If you have a particular destination in mind, then why not head to the library with them to see what related books you can find. Getting them excited about where you’re going helps so much for when you’re actually away.
