Teddy Travelogues !

Hey all,
Who doesn’t love to go on vacations?  Sometimes with our friends, sometimes with colleagues and sometimes with our own family. The journey becomes special when there are kids along with us.
The vacations we take our children on are different in a very special way.Kids see vacations very differently from adults! Their expectations, their curiosity, and the way they see things creates a unique experience on every vacation.
Taking children with you on a travelling journey can be really challenging. Most of the times, taking children on a holiday trip can turn out into an experience taking a troop of monkeys but if you plan well in advance and arrange accordingly children can add magic to your vacations. As a parent, it is your duty and responsibility to ensure that the kids have the best of times during their vacation. In return you would have a great time as well!
When it comes to kids, they always demand extra time. If you are on a sight seeing or travelling from place A to B, always keep in mind that children are curious, enthusiastic and energetic that they love to explore things. Spend time and take time for the kids.

For instance, take the example of PC game Virtual Villagers, where a tribe lands on an isolated island. In this game, you can note that the children are always curious and they give clues to the puzzles. Many things interest them. Children below 8 years dont work.
The very first thing that you have to do is to make the arrangements and preparations in advance. Speak to your travel agent if any, book your tickets, book your accommodation etc. Take out a map and make note of important landmarks that you dont want to miss.
Toddlers love exploring. Give them a simple camera suitable for their age. They may end up capturing HG images of rabbits or mountains. Allow them to do what interests them.Be prepared for the climatic conditions. You cannot predict weather and the climate may change anytime.  You might require a sunscreen or cotton clothes if its hot or a blanket if its cold. Dress the kids comfortably else they might get irritated and will start crying.
Using a public transport can turn into a nightmare. You need to pack extra clothing, napkins etc. Do not get into crowded buses or vehicles.Pack toys,books,crayons,gadgets to entertain your kids. Kids might get hurt because they are naughty. Carry a tiny first aid kit, antibacterial wipes , medicines and hand sanitizer in your bag. Dress your kids in bright coloured dress and write your mobile number on their wrist. There are chances of losing track on them. If you make them aware before itself you need not panic if they are found missing.
Dont let the kids pack their bags of their own. They have this tendency to carry unwanted items and later on they will pester you on the journey saying the bags are heavy. Take inputs from the kid and pack their bag light.
Kids should be engaged in activities to keep them busy. In case of delays, play some games with them. Dont allow them to mingle with strangers. Avoid carrying sweets. Make sure the persons who interact have identification and authorization. Let them involve with other kids of their age.
Be careful about the dangers like pools, balconies, windows etc. Select places with baby sitting facility and baby furniture.
Children love to collect things. Let them unleash their creativity by making a library of memories with the help of a travel journal/scrapbook.Toddlers get hungry and tired quickly. Pack lunch bags with their favourite food items and feed them regularly. Things get worse if they starve.
If you take care of these small issues, you can get rid of the parental stress and make the travel experience an enjoyable one.It also provokes ripples of laughter from kids to you.
