A family that Plays together – Stays together!

Life is busy and complicated at times. Demands are placed on our time from many different directions. Our career, community and family are just some of the areas of our life that demand our time. The hustle and bustle of life causes families to neglect things that are really important. Family time is often something that is taken for granted. Planning a vacation with your toddler may seem like a big undertaking and something that will not be easily accomplished. The truth is that a vacation with your toddler is one of the best ways to step away from the demands of life and truly relax.

If you have a toddler in your life you know that time spent with them is an escape into another world. A fascinating world of discover and wonder. Imagine the world you will escape to when you vacation with your toddler!

Here are 6 reasons why you will not want to miss a vacation with your toddler!

A family that plays together stays together

Life is busy and families are on the go. Work, day care, chores all pull families in many directions. The busyness of our daily routine provides very little opportunity to spend the quality time that we want with our family. Family time spent connecting with children lasts a life time. A family vacation with your toddler will allow you to focus on building and bonding a relationship together. A chance to just play together is priceless.

Vacationing with your toddler adds very little costvacation with your toddler

Toddlers are free on many modes of transportation. The cost for lodging, meals and admissions are free for children under the age of 5. Depending on your chosen destination there may be no additional expense to bring your toddler on vacation. Many of the items that you need for travel (toddler bed, car seat, high chair, carrier) are available free or at a small fee at your final destination. From a cost perspective this is the ideal time to vacation with your toddler.

Toddlers discover things you don’t even notice

If there is a toddler in your life you know already about all the things in life that you are missing or taking for granted. A toddler’s perspective on life is very refreshing and eye opening. Any vacation experience with your toddler will be full of new discoveries. Your toddler is learning from every new experience they encounter. They may not retell the vacation experience they had, but the learning they encountered will be a part of them forever.

Planes, Trains, Buses and Automobiles are their favoritesvacation with your toddler

Any mode of transportation that you use in your travels will be an incredible experience for them. Toddlers are learning and understanding the transportation around them.Your toddler will be delighted to actually be flying in an airplane or riding in a train car! The hands on experience and adventure will be invaluable.

They are early morning risers, so you beat the crowds

Toddlers are most comfortable with a daily routine. On your vacation you will want to keep the routine as close to normal for your toddler. This will allow the needed sleep and nutrition to make your toddler comfortable. Most toddlers will wake up early in the morning. Early morning allows you to visit sites and attractions when they are the least crowded. Your toddler will enjoy the extra space needed to explore without the need to hurry on.

Vacationing with your toddlers perspective allows you to lay back and relax

Vacations give you a chance to be away from your normal routine. It provides time and opportunities to connect with your family in meaningful ways. You can play, read, nap, explore, swim, or many other activity that you enjoy. Vacations allow you to kick back and relax with your family. A vacation with your toddler will take you away from the busy routine of life and into their world of wonder. Time spent in your toddlers world will refresh and rejuvenate you!

    Hi Janice,

    This is a great site, I wish I had seen it when my daughter was still a toddler. Although she’s still preschool, she’s not free (except public transport) for anything. Unfortunately, neither I or my husband could afford to even pay for ourselves to go away so we never made it.
    I working really hard on my internet marketing to generate enough income so we can actually have a holiday next year.

    I’ll be checking back for more tips on travelling with young children later.

    All the best

      Thank you for your comments and visiting the site.

      Travel and vacations do not need to cost a lot of money. There are often Day Trips that can be taken with your young children that are just the cost of the gas. I am sure your perseverance will get you on that holiday next year.

      Please pass the site along to others you know that will benefit from the information.

      Best regards.
