Three tips for fun-filled child-friendly holidays
Going on holiday with a baby or child means you have plenty to think about when planning your family holidays. But with a little bit of extra preparation, you can be sure to have safe and enjoyable child-friendly holidays from the moment you leave home.
1. Travel preparation for family holidays
Whether you're flying, driving or taking a train, most family holidays will require a significant amount of travel time.
Bring plenty of snacks and activities with you on your child-friendly holidays and always keep a spare set of clothing on hand.
If you're taking your child abroad on your family holidays, also be sure that all the paperwork is in order before you travel.
Children's passports and other documentation can take time to prepare and you should check with your GP to see if your child needs any special immunisations before leaving on your family holidays.
2. Ensure your little ones' safety for child-friendly holidays
When you arrive at your child-friendly holidays accommodation, be sure to child-proof the room and remove any safety hazards that could cause injuries while on family holidays.
It might be a good idea to bring a small roll of electrical tape with you on your child-friendly holidays so you can cover up any electrical sockets and remember to move telephones, kettles and breakable items to out-of-reach places.
3. Keeping busy on family holidays
Be sure to choose destinations for child-friendly holidays that have something for everyone. It's also recommended that you include a variety of activities in your child-friendly holidays.
While most kids will enjoy spending time on the beach or pool-side, they will eventually tire of these activities and look for something else to do on child-friendly holidays.
A trip to an amusement park or zoo during your family holidays could be a great way to keep your young one entertained.
You may also want to find out if your resort or hotel offers a children's club - these can be a great option for activities on child-friendly holidays. And if your hotel has childcare facilities, you'll also be able to enjoy a bit of adult time on your family holidays.
