You will have to be organized, but also keep in mind that being too strict will remove the entertainment from the vacation, you also have to be patient. Here is a guide that will help you have fun with your vacation and stop thinking about just surviving.
Never let your kids pack their own things, you have to deal with that situation just to make sure everything is there.
It is important to teach your kids the do’s and don’ts including that they are not allowed to pack their own bags right now. You have to know that by letting your kids pack their own backpack, you will likely see a lot of rubbish and a bunch of tutus inside their bags. Their bags will be filled with nothing but unessential things for summer vacation, it will be filled with sticker books and cuddly toys only. You have to regulate the things that you kids would like to bring with them, allow a toy or two but too much will be a problem, there will be no more space for their clothes and other stuff. You need to make sure that they have everything that they need before walking out of the door. Be sure that your kid’s bag can be hand carried because he or she will be missing it.
Always book ahead of time, planning ahead of time will be very important.
You need to make sure that you plan on ahead even if you are only going camping. Traveling with family will be hard and that is why you have to plan ahead and book everything in advance. During your early twenties, you might have had good times by booking hostels and guest houses on a whim but that is not the thing these days. Being spontaneous is not a good thing when you are looking for a good place to stay in this time. You will be in big trouble if you have to hit the road again, don’t forget about the kids that you are with, you will be drowned with annoying questions like “where are we going?” and “what was wrong with the other place?”.
You really have to be careful about what you plan to do when you travel with kids, be sure that everything is well planned and you just might have enough time to have fun with the vacation.
