Travelling is fun and educational as well.
When we get out of our comfort zone of home and travel to other areas we see how others live, learn about differences in culture and environment. We also have fun.
Travelling is still a great way to teach your children about the world and even though gas prices are higher than ever still affordable for most.
Teach your children to pack for themselves. Help them make a list of what they think they will be wanting to wear on the trip, at the beach, out to dinner, etc. Have them pick out and pack games, books, or other items that they enjoy.
Involve them in the planning! Show them the map and let them help you route out the trip. Teaching a child to read a map can prove very beneficial for the future, you never know when you might need their navigational skills!
Teach your children about budgeting to save for a vacation and explain the ins and outs of vacation expenses and allowances. This can save you a lot of “no’s” as they will have a better understanding of how much everything will cost and how much you have to spend.
Enjoy the trip as well as the destination.
Often, quality time can be spent in the drive to and from your destination as well as when you arrive.
Make travelling fun for everyone. Safe travels and we hope to see you soon here at The Sea Oats Motel. Call us today for more information on rates and availability.
