Top Tips for Planning the Perfect Family Vacation

Traveling together as a family is an awesome experience that none of you are ever going to forget. Whether you’re looking at going on a cheap and fun staycation or want to take a memorable trip abroad to an exotic location together, there’s nothing better than taking some time off to relax, unwind, have fun and enjoy exploring and having adventures together as a family. For the perfect family trip, it’s essential to make sure that you plan in advance. We’ve put together some of our best top tips to help you put together the perfect vacation that you and your family will love.

Tip #1. Research Hotels:

When it comes to choosing accommodation for your family holiday, it’s important to bear in mind that not all hotels are created equally. The last thing that you want when you arrive at your destination is for your hotel to have nothing in the way of family-friendly amenities, or be totally unsuitable for children. If possible, it’s a good idea to book a villa or vacation home stay for your family, as these tend to offer a lot more room than a standard family hotel room, and a more ‘home from home’ experience that provides more comfort for you and your children.

Tip #2. Put Together a Must-Do List:

Traveling as a family can be tricky when it comes to finding the right attractions and activities since there’s always bound to be something that not everybody will agree on. So, it’s a good idea to look up the type of things to see and do that are available in the area before putting together a list of your must do's and must-sees. This is ideal if you are traveling with both older and younger children, as you’ll probably find that they won’t always want to do the same things, or the activities that your older kids are interested in aren’t always going to be suitable for little ones. This way, you’ll all be able to make sure that everyone gets a chance to do what they want while on vacation.

Tip #3. Book Your Flights Early:

There’s a lot to be said about good last-minute deals, however, the problem with these is that they can often be quite hit and miss. For example, you don’t really know if a flight is going to fill up, meaning that the tickets will be in higher demand, and therefore more expensive when you book them. Along with this, booking your tickets at the last minute could even mean that you won’t be able to get seats together for your family! Booking early can actually help you to get better deals since many airlines will usually put prices down quite low if the flight still has a lot of seats available. Along with this, you will have more time to choose your flight times carefully, for example, to coincide with your younger children’s bedtimes or nap times.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
