5 Ways to Take the Stress out of Family Holidays

Another family vacation? Don’t dread your next trip! Even though travelling with the kids can pack its fair share of stresses, it also presents countless opportunities for creating cherished family memories. Here are five easy tips that are sure to take the stress out of your next family holiday, leaving you free to have a wonderful time with the most important people in your life.

1. Pack Smart

Even before you holiday begins, packing can cause a lot of stress. You don’t want to over or under pack, so save time and stress by making a list! This way, you’ll have everything you need and won’t risk forgetting important items. If you’re planning on a short family visit, save space and share a suitcase! Sites such as Luggage Direct have a wide range of luggage options to suit any holiday, as well as coloured space-saving compartments to keep everyone’s gear separate and stop those suitcase-sharing arguments!

2. Be Prepared

Don’t get caught off guard with bored kids (or being bored yourself!). For long-distance trips, prepare enough snacks and entertainment so you can enjoy a peaceful journey. Keep electronics charged with in-car charges and make those batteries last. Overnight flights are more comfortable with a neck pillow and a scarf to keep you warm or block unwanted light. Keep the kids entertained with a variety of activities including colouring books, games such as ‘I spy’ and, if driving, take a break every couple of hours so everyone can have a good stretch. The more enjoyable the journey, the less stress (and more fun) you and your family will have getting to your destination!

3. Time Out

As much as we love spending time with our loved ones, everyone needs a break now and then. Be a little selfish and indulge in some ‘me time’; after all, it’s your holiday too! Find at least 10 minutes each day to do something you enjoy such as reading a good book, going for a relaxing walk or perhaps indulging in a massage. Family time is important but it can be a little overwhelming, so enjoy some quiet time to de-stress from all the hustle and bustle.

4. Have Realistic Expectations

Family visits don’t always go as expected. If certain family members don’t get along, don’t expect them to on your visit. Save yourself some stress and have a plan to deal with more difficult family members. Young children tire easily, so if you’re planning a long day, make sure they have plenty of rest to reduce the risk of a tantrum. Teenagers may not want to spend all day with the family, so have at least one activity they must attend and be more lenient on other activities to ensure no one goes off to sulk.

5. Be Organised

There’s nothing more stressful than running late. Plan how to arrive at your destination and allow extra time for traffic and other delays. Lay your clothes out the night before so you can get dressed and go the following morning. Having all luggage and snacks packed the night before will also make for a smooth departure. Organising a trip may be hard work, but it will pay off with a stress-free journey for you and the family!

Family holidays can be a nightmare, but some easy tricks will reduce your stress so you can have a lovely time. Please share any of your tips for a stress-free family holiday in the comments below.

Know Your Transport Options

Hotel transports generally cost more than public transport or private rentals. Some hotels charge such exorbitant fees for transport services that getting a car financing Philippines appear to be a more economical choice. To save on transportation expenses, scout ahead of time for car rental services and compare their rates with those of public taxicabs. In some destinations, using local transportation is not only cheaper but also allows you to immerse yourself in the local culture.

Eat Local and Try Local Cuisines

Most hotels provide complimentary breakfasts when you book a room, other meals though are seldom included. While hotels provide you a wide array of food, they can be quite expensive.

Organizing Family Picnics for the Summer Season

The cold season is over and people start enjoying the warmth of summer. One of the most popular family activities during this season is having a picnic. It doesn’t matter if you spend it on a beach, park, or just in your backyard – eating out the good old fashioned way is a great family bonding activity. The task of organizing family picnics can be as easy as a breeze or very challenging. Having small family picnics is pretty much like preparing lunch at home for a couple of guests. Bigger families on the other hand would require planning and coordinating with family members.

The burden of organizing family picnics need not rest on one individual’s shoulder. After all, having a family is also about having people that you can count on. For big family picnics, the point person can assign other members to take charge of different aspects of the picnic. The usual concerns for a picnic are the venue, food, drinks, activities or entertainment, chairs, tables, and utensils. In some cases transportation may also be a concern especially if it involves beach or out of town picnics.

A primary concern during the planning stage is the number of people who are expected to attend the picnic as well as their demographics. The choice of venue, food, drinks, and activities would depend on these numbers. You would want family members to fit comfortably in your chosen venue and still have enough room for the activities you planned. Coming up with a picnic menu can be done by asking family members to name their favorite dishes along with food restrictions or food allergies. You can come-up with a menu and assign family members to bring them to the picnic or just make a list and go for a potluck picnic. Most family picnics have mixed demographics so make sure you have activities that appeal to all age groups for non-stop fun.

Organizing family picnics for the summer season can both be exciting and exhausting. The planning and preparation stages are often tedious and sometimes stressful. But stress and exhaustion can be wiped away by the fun and laughter shared with loved ones.


5 Fun Outdoor Activities for the Kids

So you want to spend more time in the great outdoors with the kids, but you’re not sure how to get them interested? There’s a stack of great things you can do around your home or in your area that don’t involve a great deal of expense, can be done in spare time, and are a stack of fun for you and the kids. So what outdoors things can you do with the kids that don’t require a huge amount of input for a huge amount of enjoyment? Check out the ideas below.

1. Get Them into the Backyard

playing in the backyard
When was the last time you really had fun with the kids on the grass? A good game of football, playing catch, or just lying on the ground, making shapes out of the clouds? It’s probably been too long, but it’s probably not just because you’re short on time. One of the main reasons people don’t play on the grass is because their grass is terrible – it’s full of weeds, the ground is uneven, or the coverage is patchy. If you’re avoiding your grass because it’s uncomfortable, chat to a turfing expert, such as Hancey’s Turf, or visit this website to see how installing some turf can transform your backyard into a fun and family-friendly area again.

2. Family Vegetable Patch

How delicious are fresh vegetables? Tomatoes that don’t taste like cardboard? Lettuce that doesn’t smell like a freezer? Herbs that jump off the plate with flavour? Kids love getting their hands dirty, and what better way to get them dirty than to introduce them to their own vegetable garden? It’s fun. It’s educational. It teaches them about the food cycle – what could be better?

3. Fresh Eggs, Anyone?

Fresh eggs every morning? Yes please! Chickens teach children patience and respect for animals, and can also help them develop the friendly and caring aspects of their personalities. You’ll be amazed at how inexpensive a chicken coop is and be blown away at just how delicious fresh eggs are.

4. Smell the Roses…

…or the sunflowers, the petunias, or the marigold. Kids just love watching flowers grow from seedlings into bunches of colourful goodness. Getting outdoors with your kids around their very own flower bed is such a great way to spend a lazy hour, plus, you’ve got fresh flowers for a bouquet every week – everyone wins!

5. Get to the Beach

So you’ve got no garden to visit? Do what any self-respecting parent would do and get to the beach! Do you remember those lazy summer days at the beach? Mornings in the waves, enjoying lunch over piping hot fish and chips, afternoons building the best sandcastles ever and early evening cool downs? Everyone loves the beach – what are you waiting for? Grab the body boards, the buckets and sunscreen and get to the beach!
