Presents to Keep Children Entertained on Holiday
Whether you’re holidaying with toddlers or teenagers, keeping your kids entertained on holiday can feel like a mammoth task. However, the good news is that with a little preparation, keeping the kids entertained on your next family holiday is more than achievable. Whether you’re packing for all inclusive holidays to Egypt, a 24-hour flight to Australia or a quick drive down to Cornwall – here are some easy tips for ensuring the kids don’t get too bored.
Get up to date
While you might hate staring at that tiny screen, the chances are your kids can do it for hours. Tablets are the perfect device to take away on a family holiday. Not only are they small enough to fit in your handbag or suitcase, they’re big enough to watch movies and TV shows on. Just be sure to have all of the family favourites ready to play before you set off. Music devices like MP3 players can also be good value for keeping teenagers entertained, but make sure that they don’t make for easy sharing. For anyone that is planning to read whilst travelling, a Kindle book reader is perfect for lugging around the entire Harry Potter series in one petite package.
Very few holidays escape miserable weather totally unscathed. Even on scenic getaways to Greece, you might encounter the odd day of rain. That’s why it always pays to be prepared with some of the classic family board games. You can occupy yourself for several hours with a vigorous game of Scrabble or a dramatic showdown on the Monopoly Board. Plenty of holiday resorts supply board games for their younger guests, but be sure to enquire ahead to make sure. If you don’t want the added luggage, one of the simplest family-friendly games involves only a deck of cards. From Go-Fish to Spoons to Crazy Eights, there is plenty of fun and straightforward card games to choose from that are sure to keep the kids sufficiently entertained.
Why not start the holiday on the right note by booking a getaway to a family friendly destination. There are cheap holidays to Algarve, Turkey and Greek island resorts that offer endless water sports, games and kids entertainment, that help to counter the boredom from the minute you arrive. A cruise is another cheap holiday that offers plenty of on-board entertainment, with children’s pools, gaming rooms and endless entertainment.
