Be it a day in the backyard, a neighborhood park or a weekend in the wilderness, the first step in reducing stress is planning an age-appropriate experience. Children need regular breaks, so remember to keep your hiking and exploring pace at their level.
Here are a few more quick tips:
Don't let the stress of "getting there" ruin your vacation when traveling with young children. There are a few simple steps you can take to make sure everyone has a smooth flight. From what to pack to how to play on the airplane, let these simple suggestions guide the way when traveling with children.
Packing to Check-in:
3-1-1: It's simple and will help you flow through security stress-free. Just remember, 3 ounces or less for liquids, 1 quart size, see-through bag for easy content checks and 1 bag per traveler placed in the check-in security bin. This ensures all items are screened and released quickly, and you're on your way.
For young travelers, wear slip-on or Velcro-closure shoes with socks to make security checks stress free.
Extra Clothes and Snacks: Little accidents can happen so keep an extra outfit in your carry-on and have plenty of healthy snacks for the flight. If your child is old enough for a lollipop, bring one to help with ears as the plane descends. "Pressure Pops" are the perfect reward for a well-behaved traveler.
A Photo I.D.: Bring your child's birth certificate if you don't have a photo I.D. just in case you are asked by security. Also, having a current photo of your child, and a family photo, is a good precautionary step in the event you are separated and a picture is needed to help bring everyone back together safely.
Games, books, toys and stuffed animals: Make sure they are easy to pack and bring them out one at a time so there is always something new when needed. Look for travel games that are easy to carry.
Let Your Child Guide the Way: With pre-planning and your Get Ready to Fly Chipper story, you can prompt young travelers for what's next and let them guide the way through check-in, security and boarding.
Remember It's an Adventure: Let your child's imagination fly, look out the window and find shapes in the clouds, guess the names of the flight attendants or pilots and talk or write about where you will go and what you will see.
