A Guide to Taking Your Family on an Active Vacation

 When you have kids, you might be planning to help them to let off steam on an active vacation. This can be a great, cheap option when you have kids that can reignite their interest in sports and exercise while also allowing you to create great memories with all of your family members. Therefore, here is a guide to taking your family on an active vacation no matter what your budget is. 

  • Pack the Right Clothing

It can be difficult to find practical clothes to run around after the kids in at the best of times. However, it can be even more difficult to choose the right clothes for your active vacation. You should ensure that you research the gear that your entire family will need for the sports that you will be enjoying, as well as the type of weather you should be dressing for. However, it can be expensive to find the right gear for your family. Consider looking for discounts on activewear. For instance, if you need durable sports socks, Giving Assistant can help you to make the best of the Darn Tough socks sale with their coupons. 

  • Immerse Your Kids in Nature 

When you are intending to take your family on an active vacation, you should find ways to immerse your kids in nature rather than paying for indoor sporting activities. Getting out into nature can encourage your kids to be naturally active and can give them space to run around and burn off their excess energy. Not only this but immersing your kids in nature through hikes is a completely free activity that you can enjoy with the entirety of your family. 

  • Bring Snacks

If you want to avoid having to pay out for food in the first, usually expensive, restaurant that you find whenever the kids get hungry, you should make sure that you take a lot of snacks with you on your trip. When your kids are more active than usual, they will also need to eat more, and so bringing snacks can save you money while helping you to avoid tantrums and your child’s wrath.

  • Take Breaks

To ensure that your kids can enjoy every moment of the trip and that they do not get burned out halfway through your trip, your family should take ample breaks. For instance, you might spend a day lounging at the beach or in your resort’s swimming pool. This can help your whole family to relax and can even save you money, as you will not have to keep spending out on expensive activities to fill every single moment of the day.

  • Remember Extra Luggage

When you are packing for an active vacation, you will likely have extra luggage, such as sporting equipment and gear. You need to make sure that you are prepared to pay for the costs of additional baggage or that you can compromise on the other items that you pack in your bags. You might also consider spreading your luggage out between everyone’s suitcases, as children will usually have fewer possessions to take with them, but the same weight limit on their luggage.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
