Whether via plane, train or car, traveling with little ones can be a stressful and sometimes worrisome task. With many families getting ready to take off on their summer vacations, it is essential to know how to keep children entertained and safe while on the road or in the air. To help put parents’ minds at ease, the childcare experts at The Goddard School have supplied their top 10 traveling tips for families with children:
1. Plan for an active stretch at a rest stop or a playground – let them walk or toddle for 20 or so minutes before climbing back in the car.
2. For infants, pre-measure formula into bottles and carry a room temperature bottle of water to mix on the go.
3. If you are traveling by plane, a car seat can double as a feeding chair or nap location.
