Hi friends! Happy spring! I am so excited spring has finally sprung and the season is in full effect. One of my favorite parts about spring? spending my days in the sun with my girls. I love that for two weeks there is no homework, no alarm clocks, and just lots of warm fun. I also love our family’s annual spring break trips. Last year due to covid we had to cancel our spring break trip to Las Vegas. But like many families this year, we will be hitting the road for a more low-key family trip. A social distancing beach trip. So today I share with you my personal top 3 tips for traveling with kids on spring break.
My personal 3 tips.
1. Pack the essentials: Packing for any trip is hard. But packing for a trip with little ones is a million times harder. I tend to overpack whenever we go on a trip. But as my girls have gotten older I have actually learned that less is better. When we take trips now I pack the essentials only. Toiletries, snacks, iPad, and of course our Primary wardrobe. Primary is a one-stop shop because they have all the essentials kids need. From tops to leggings, pajamas, jackets, and mask. You will find all of your basic essentials for any kind of trip you’re taking. Check out the girl’s outfits here and here.
2. Leave early: I have honestly found that when we hit the road early it makes for a better trip. It is a little rough at first getting cranky littles in the car for an early road trip. However, once the car starts moving they typically fall back asleep and stay asleep for a while. It also makes for some semi-nice alone time for us parents. Sure our kids are asleep in the back but no one is fighting over crayons, asking are we there yet, or needing to pull over for a potty break every 30 minutes. The early bird gets the worm and also gets to their destination faster.
3. Give yourself some grace: Taking a family road trip will have it’s ups and downs. You may get down on yourself because perhaps you forgot to pack your essentials, you didn’t leave early enough, the kids are fighting, etc. But listen to me when I say give yourself some grace. Family road trips are meant to be fun, not perfect. So if these tips aren’t for you just remember to do your best and have some fun.
Here comes the sun!
So from adorable cozy basics to getting that worm early and giving yourself a pat on the back spring break trips are a celebration. A celebration of family, fun and all things spring! Have fun on your trip friends!
