Tips, Tricks, Tactics

•  While your family takes a road trip in the family auto, be it in Europe or America, plan to stop at historical markers along the way. It will bring history to life and possibly cultivate a new interest for all. Likewise, a trip to a major attraction, such as a volcano, may interest your child in geology.

•  Encourage your kids to bring home souvenirs. They help relive the memories of their vacation. Place these memorabilia in cabinets, on shelves, or counter tops and prepare captions for each vacation.
•  Collect postcards from each vacation because they provide insurance just in case your vacation snapshots don’t turn out. Children love to collect them for their scrapbooks. Encourage your kids to send postcards to their family and friends, or even send them to themselves. Kids love to receive mail from their travels.
•  Trips that require long hours in an auto can be fatiguing for kids as well as adults. Car games can make the time go by more quickly, providing lots of fun and laughter. Check out the alphabet game which requires everyone to try to locate the letters of the alphabet sequentially, using signs along the road. The license plate game encourages everyone to spot and record the states from automobile license plates on passing cars.
•  Every holiday celebrated is an important time for making memories and promoting values and traditions. A strong family tradition of events and activities during these holidays can help focus children’s attention on your family’s goals.
