The Chicklet and I will be heading to Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO during a 4 day trip we are taking during her Spring Break this week. We are road-tripping it to spend two days at the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas state, and then hitting some sights in Kansas City. She is becoming a travel maven in her own right, as we go on many trips together, and she has a method to get her ready for trips.
When we sat down the other day, she said she wanted to begin a video travel series to help other kids that like to travel. I thought it was a pretty good idea, so she came up with three tips that she wanted to share in her first video blog.
Here are Three Tips Kids Need to Know When They Travel:
1. Have the right sized luggage:
The Chicklet and her dad went on Amazon.com and purchased a little rolling suitcase for her to bring with her when we flew to Florida. When the suitcase arrived, it was super duper small and she was disappointed. She had to bring her backpack with her and she didn’t want to—but to fit her Kindle Fire, stuffed animal, Nintendo DS, etc., she needed more space.
2. Bring a sweater or jacket in case of cooler temperatures or changes in the weather:
During our trips, The Chicklet gets cold, no matter the season. I find this happens especially at night when the sun goes down. So now when we travel, she always makes sure to pack a jacket or sweater and a pair of pants, even in the summer. You never know when the temperature may change.
3. Write a list of things you want to take with you so you won’t forget anything:
The Chicklet is an organizational person like me. She likes things well planned and executed. So before any trip we take, she writes a list of the things she wants to take, so she doesn’t forget anything. And I, being the mom, signs off on the list, to make sure she doesn’t over-pack and take too much.
