Deciding to take young children away can be a bit of a stressful decision. Where do you go? Will it be child friendly? How long will it take to get there?
Do you stay in the UK or travel further afield? If you are staying the UK then Butlins do a Just for Tots holiday and A Slice of My Life Wales has written all about her stay there. Or perhaps camping is more your style? A Mum Track Mind went to The Lake District on a camping trip with a little one and it looked fab! Somewhere we went recently was Center Parcs – such a fantastic place to go as a family with something to suit all ages.
If you are thinking about going abroad but are not sure whether it is a good idea with toddlers or not, then The Twinkle Diaries shares her amazing holiday to Sardinia with her twin boys. Somewhere that is on my list to visit is Crete and Emily and Indiana shares a familymoon with us – such a lovely idea. Lastly, Babyfoote shares her favourite things to do in Rome with toddlers – young children shouldn’t stop you from enjoying amazing destinations.
I think the main worry for many parents is the travelling to and from the holiday destination. We are going to be travelling with Wills for the first time in a few weeks and I am really anxious! If you are travelling by car or by plane, Wave To Mummy has a fab post on how to make up an entertainment pack for toddlers – I will definitely be using it! Mudpie Fridays has an excellent post with so many tips for flying with a toddler and I also love this post from Flying with a Baby with loads of tips for solving any in-flight problems that may crop up.
Wherever you decide to go, Quite Frankly She Said has a great list of things to help you prepare and Whinge Whinge Wine shares her tips on how to have a harmonious holiday – point number 1 did make me laugh!
What are your plans for the summer? Are you opting for a staycation or are you going away for a week or two?
Next month I will be talking all about days out with toddlers. So many places are geared for older children so I want to share top picks for little ones. If you have a post to share then pop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @whatkatysaiduk.
