It is an oldie but a goodie! There is no better time to persuade your children to get into reading than when they are a captive audience.

Reading is a great way to pass the time, while broadening their non-digital horizons.
Before you go rushing out to the overpriced toy store try checking out your local thrift store. It is a wonderful way to get “new’ games to keep them entertained for the trip, and when they have played them to death, you can seek out a thrift store at your destination to drop them off and pick up something new for the return journey.
What better way to get them excited about where they are vacationing than to get them to scrapbook all the places they will be going! Pick up travel pamphlets from the travel agent or airport and get stickers from your local craft store so they can participate in building their vacation.
