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.

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!
