Following on from my last post, about our dream ‘Moana style holiday’ I’ve realised, that planning a holiday or a day out can be a military operation, especially when you’ve got children – there are so many considerations you have to make to keep them entertained and happy for the full trip.Whether it’s a day out or a two-week holiday abroad you have planned, here are three things to add to the packing checklist to keep the kids happy when you’re on the move. *This is a collaborative post*
- Fun Bags and Luggage
When planning a holiday, investing in some bags and suitcases aimed specifically at children can help make the process much easier.
Bags with fun animal designs or featuring their favourite characters might get them more excited about packing clothes for the holiday (with your supervision, of course, they don’t need to bring that tenth toy!) Plus, they’ll want to wheel along their own luggage in the airport, like the mini grown up they are.
- A Pair of Heelys
Heelys are quite popular with young people now and if you’ve not heard of them, they’re stylish trainers with wheels built into them. Your kids can go from walking to gliding in a matter of seconds in these stylish shoes! Plus, you’ll be sure to find a pair that they like as there’s a large collection on offer from shops like Skate Hut, with plenty of different designs and features available.
They’re not just for children and adult versions on sale too… Take your family walk to the next level with matching heelys!
- A Kid-Friendly Digital Camera
Keep your kids entertained on a day out by letting them snap away with a children’s digital camera. You can find cameras that have been designed specifically for small hands, with bright colours and waterproof features. We guarantee your kids will keep by their side all day, trying to capture the perfect shot!
If you’re feeling nostalgic, buy an instant camera like a mini Polaroid, to show your children how you did it back in the day! Your kids are sure to love seeing their photos printed straight away and be encouraged to take creative and arty shots. Plus, they’re perfect for sticking up on your fridge. We can all agree that it’s much better than just seeing the digital versions on your laptop!
Make sure you keep your whole family happy on a trip away or a day out with these three kid-friendly buys. Complaints of being bored will be a thing of the past when you have these three accessories to keep them entertained, both in transit and whilst you’re away!
