Spring Break Tips for Families

Spring break is coming up and many families are looking forward to a change of scenery. It’s a good time to introduce your kids to a whole new season of exploration and fun. Wherever you might be headed, we have a few tips that will make the break a little easier.

  • Anticipate the weather. If you are headed to a warm destination, don’t forget the sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats. And remember, those early spring days can turn chilly quickly. Bring extra clothing just in case.
  • Travel safely. Make sure to get your car a check-up before you hit the road. Don’t forget the emergency equipment, like a first aid kit and extra snacks, diapers, and water. If you are heading out on a plane trip, discuss child restraint system options (CRS) with your airline.
  • Incorporate learning.  Try to find outlets like museums, parks, zoos, and tours that offer opportunities to educate your family.
  • Stick to a routine. Make an effort not to get too far away from your daily sleep and meal schedules while traveling. This will make coming home a difficult adjustment for your children.
