Top 4 Ways To Keep Children Entertained On Holiday

Having a family holiday can be a fantastic thing but there is nothing worse than when they complain that they are bored. Read our top 5 tips for making sure that this will not happen when you are on holiday.

Booking the Right Place

It is really important to think about all of the family when you book your holiday in the first place. Make sure that you have considered what everyone will do to entertain themselves while you are there. The age of the children will obviously have some influence on this. You will need to think about what they normally do and whether they will be able to do that on holiday and if not, what they will be doing instead. Talk to them about it as well, if they are old enough as if they have had some input, it is more likely that they will feel that it is the right place.

The Journey

Travelling can take a long time and be very dull and so having things for the children to do at this time is really important. Think about what they might like to do such as play on a phone or tablet, read a book, colour or play games. You could give them things to spot, get them singing or making up poems. They could listen to music or watch a film. Consider whether they are likely to get motion sickness and adapt the activities accordingly. It is possible to find enough things to do to keep them occupied for a whole journey, but make sure you write a list and have it handy, in case you run out of inspiration.

What to Take for Entertainment

It is important to consider what the children will do to pass the time while on holiday. If you want to stay in bed in the mornings, have you got something they can do as they are bound to wake up early! Have you planned activities that you can do every day and what happens if the weather is wet, cold or too hot and you need to stay inside. It can be good to take a selection of favourite books, games and toys. Consider whether you will be able to buy things or not and if you cannot then you will need to take more. Ask your children what things they would like to take as well, so that you know that you have everything that you will need to make sure that they never get bored!

Plan Activities for Every day

Grown-ups may be perfectly happy lazing round and taking things in their stride on holiday. For children this can just be extremely boring and so it will be necessary to plan an activity for them to do every day. This may feel like a bind but it should stop them from getting bored, which will help all of you to have a better time.
