Kids, this section is especially for you! You’ll find some handy hints and great ideas about going on holidays with your family, plus some fun stuff to do while you’re there.
- Stuff you can’t live without
- Survival tips
- Fun activities
When you’re flying with the family there are some things that you just have to have:
- Your iPod or MP3, for when you don’t want to talk to the person next to you. Also handy for listening in when people think you’re not!
- Chewy to help your ears ’pop’ when you’re taking off and landing.
- Your own pack, so you have your stuff handy and your parents don’t make you use a trolley bag–not cool.
- Your second favourite t shirt, cos you know your favourite one is going to get dirty.
- Your portable DVD player and headphones so you can watch your own stuff.
- Spare batteries for it.
- Handheld electronic game.
- Maps and travel guides so you can find fun things to do on holiday.
- More spare batteries.
- Favourite books and magazines.
- Travel games like uno and cards.
- Snacks for the plane trip.
- Your camera (or borrow your parents).
Other kids have had to go on holidays with their parents–and survived. Even had a good time. Here’s how they managed it.
- If you’re flying with both your parents suggest that they book seats in front or behind you. They can sit together and you can look like you’re travelling alone.
- Rip your favourite tunes onto your iPod or MP3 before you go.
- Set up a gmail or hotmail address so you can keep in touch with your friends. Don’t forget to add all their addresses before you go.
- Help plan the trip so you can include some cool places that you want to visit.
- ’Google’ your destination to see what’s cool about it.
- Take a book with a story about the place you’re going.
- Take a journal or a blank book to write notes and stick interesting stuff into.
Don’t forget to print these before you leave!
