1. Pack a backpack

click here backpackbeeDiscuss in advance with your grandchild what they might need or want to take. Write a list together (sneaky literacy practice!) and pack a backpack prior to the journey. Encourage them to think of packing a bottle of water, pocket packs of tissues and wetwipes, hat, suntan lotion (if sunny), things to do, games to play … Don’t forget their favourite soft toy or blanket. Packing a backpack builds suspense and excitement about your journey and is also excellent training for all those future Scout and Brownie camps, for which they will then be able to pack for themselves.

2. Sensible supplies

ام القرى اسهم Stick to water, raisins, fruit, cereal bars. Perhaps you can allow a treat at certain milestones in your trip but try to avoid the hyperactivity-inducing additives found in sweets and soft drinks. Even if you think your journey is going to be a short one and you won’t need supplies, pack some anyway – you never know what might happen.

3. Busy bees

These may be their favourite electronic games (in small doses) – remember to take batteries and chargers. Such travel pastimes as write-on/wipe-off activities, dice games, magnetic games, card games and activity books are always a good idea. Remember that your grandchild may need a lap tray to play with these. Story and song CDs can also be great fun.

4. Compact outdoor games

arbeta hemma avdrag There’s so much fun to be had from an inflatable ball or a small foam one. Other useful but easily portable play equipment includes a kite, bat and ball, skipping rope and frisbee.


5. Postcard project

http://dinoprojektet.se/?kapitanse=arbeta-hemifr%C3%A5n-l%C3%A4rare&a18=19 Enjoy helping your grandchild choose and write (or draw and colour pictures on) postcards to send home to relatives, teachers, neighbours and friends. Before you travel, print out the addresses on self-adhesive labels. Don’t leave this until the end of the holiday or it may become a chore. Work at this project all the while you’re away.


6. Good books

go to site Try to train your grandchild to enjoy quiet time on holiday, too, when you can curl up with your book and they curl up with theirs – a story book, picture book or activity colouring book (dot-to-dot, etc.).


7. Camera crazy

أفكار لربح اموال إضافية Treat your child to a disposable camera or an old point-and-shoot one – or a digital camera you won’t mind losing! They can keep it in their backpack. Encourage them to take photos to remind them of their travels.


8. Scrapbook souvenirs

source Before the holiday, buy a Scrapbook and a glue stick and/or sticky tape, which your grandchild can keep in their backpack. Help them collect souvenirs such as entry tickets, beermats, menus and flyers to stick in the Scrapbook during their travels. Encourage them to write some thoughts or funny stories or colour pictures to remind them of what each souvenir means.

9. Wristband safety

click Treat your child to a colourful rubber wristband that has your mobile number written on the inside in permanent marker pen. At the same time, discuss with them how important it is that they stay beside you at all times. Try not to make too big an issue of ‘getting lost’, but make sure that they understand that the mobile number is there in case of emergency. Tell them that it shouldn’t usually be shown to other children or adults – it’s only for emergencies


10. Participation

الخيارات الثنائية لا إيداع الحد الأدنى For you to enjoy a relaxing journey or holiday, your grandchild needs to be kept safely occupied and busy. This takes energy on your part (sometimes quite a lot), but hopefully you’ll then be able to cherish chilled-out chunks of time as you perfect the technique of keeping your grandchild ‘entertained’.
