RV camping with children can be an excellent experience for the kids and fun for parents. It’s great for children to escape the city once in a while. Get them away and out from the television and video games and back in nature.
Let them see a variety of things that are wondrous and of course different creatures like a snake or a jackrabbit. Tell them about the various kinds of trees and plants which are located around the campground and beyond.
I had a great biology teacher in high school who told us about the plants and animals that lived in the forests around us and took us on an adventure inside his classroom. I still remember a lot of what we heard. You can be a biology teacher to your kids and you can all learn together.
Many stories can be shared while traveling with your family and many new stories can be crated as well. Because everyone is relaxed and having a good time without any added stress from normal everyday life, the creative juices can start flowing.
We may encounter something amazing in nature that you all get to see and share, and this could become of one those family stories that get told every holiday when everyone is together. Your kids will have really cool stories to tell their classmates when they get back into school. Dont underestimate the power of spending high quality time together as a family unit, there is nothing better!
Tips for taking RV Trips with Kids
Moving about in the motorhome when it is being driven isn’t advisable. Kids must realize that they can’t play active games like tag, hide and seek, etc. This is very dangerous inside of a home that is on wheel and on the move.
Audio tapes and CDs help to keep minds and their ears busy with options. If you’re traveling with teenagers, remind them to load up their iPods.
Pick up some inexpensive items from a dollar store to use for “special awards” that you create while on the trip. These retail stores have other games and sets that are excellent for in-car entertainment.
Hold back some of the “treasures” you have to be used in emergencies only that can cheer someone up quickly. Children can be quite useful in setting up and striking camp.
Children should be assigned to different tasks. What is also known is kids need frequent stops. An RV resort or campground with a swimming pool and playground area is something the children can look forward to.
Keeping children active along the way is worth any time that you may spend preplanning activities. Take the time to pre-plan as much as possible because when the time comes, and it will with kids when they say Im bored, you will have options.
The kids may, in the beginning, crab about not having all the usual amenities at home but after just a few fun experiences, that will fade away and they will have lifetime memories to fall back on forever. Keep it FUN!
