  • Failsafe Ways to Keep the Kids Busy on Holiday

    Family holidays should be relaxing, but as any parent knows, they can be anything but. Keeping the kids occupied and entertained is essential for you to be able to enjoy the relaxing, fun-filled holiday you planned. 

    If you want to ensure your family getaway is memorable for all the right reasons, here you’ll discover some failsafe ways to keep the kids busy on holiday.

    Clever travel distractions  

    One of the most challenging parts of a family holiday is keeping the kids entertained on the flight. Being in a small space with the kids for hours can be challenging. However, with a few clever distractions you can keep them entertained until you reach your destination.  

    One great tip is to create a holiday bag. This is something they’ll be able to take with them on the plane. Fill it with activities such as colouring books, puzzles and toys. You may want to hold back some of the toys to space them out a little throughout the flight. Try to provide activities that will keep the kids busy for longer periods of time. 

    Choose a hotel or resort with family-friendly activities

    Not all hotels provide the same level of family-friendly activities. That’s why we’ve put together a page dedicated specifically to family holidays. The hotels and resorts featured on this page were created with families in mind. This means they offer activities such as kids clubs, waterparks and family entertainment. 

    Family resorts, such as the TUI Family Life Atlantica Aegean Blue in Greece, provide kids’ clubs to give parents a break. You can relax and unwind knowing that your kids are in safe hands being entertained. Look out for our TUI Family Life hotels for the ultimate family getaway. 

    Opt for an adventure holiday

    An adventure holiday is great for families, as each day is taken up by an exciting activity. You’ll get to try out horse riding, take a mountain bike tour and try out numerous watersports. These activity holidays don’t just help to keep the family entertained, they also help to keep you active. 

    You’ll also explore a unique side of the destination you’re visiting. Many families opt to simply relax on the beach. However, this doesn’t give you the opportunity to explore all that a place has to offer. If you want to have a memorable and adrenaline packed family getaway, an adventure holiday is just what you need. 

    Don’t forget that we also give you the opportunity to book excursions on your holiday. You can take a look at our excursions page to book family friendly activities wherever you’re jetting off to.   

    Check out local parks

    Finally, another failsafe way to keep the kids entertained on holiday is to check out local parks. Most destinations have national parks nearby, which can be both fun and educational. Exploring parks helps to teach your kids about wildlife and the environment. You’ll get to take lots of great photos to treasure the memories, and it’s an activity that can last most of the day. 

    Keeping the kids busy on holiday isn’t always easy. However, the above are some of the best ways to keep them entertained. Don’t forget to check out our free kids’ places page for discounts on family breaks in summer 2020.
