Covid time have been scary for adults and kids alike. syteeping our with kids is a nightmare. More so, if your child is a naughty little brat. I can understand your. I have been there. I have three little hellions who were ready to burst out at a drop of a hat. And so we were travelling with kids during the COVID times. Not 1, not 2 but 3. Can you beat that.
The planning nightmare:
If you have been following my posts, you might know that I don’t plan my trips in advance. But this time, I had to. Ww researched on a plethora of options and finally ruled out the option for a stay over. We started early in the morning and reached the property a little late for breakfast. So, what are the precautions that we took?
Travelling with kids during COVID:
We have taken the following precautions while we set out.
Keep spare masks ready
Kids play around and tend to drop the masks everywhere they run around. It is extremely risky to keep it back. This applies during the non-COVID times as well. Always keep a spare mask.
Carry sanitizing wipes
Kids always touch everywhere. It might not be feasible to make then handwash every now and then. we cannot make them sanitize their hands without cleaning them. So we are left with one option – Wipes. Keep sanitizing wipes handy while travelling with kids during COVID or otherwise as well.
Keep sanitizer spray ready
The place where we went had swings, slides, and what not. Kids were uncontrollable after months of jailing them. But how can we trust these swings? Would other kids sit there? I was getting anxious.The sanitizer sprays came to my rescue. I kept on spraying all over the places where my kids might play and touch.
Book private properties
The one I booked was not a private property. Rhis property named Vagamon Heights had separate cottages that were way apart from each other. Hence idea of social distancing was applicable.
Carry trash bags
This is applicable in all times. You must make your child accountable of keeping their country clean and preventing litter. Let them inculcate the habit of carrying a trash bag and take accountability of their trash.
Avoid Long Trips
Try to keep the trips short so that you don’t have to have many pitstops. Lets exposure the better.
Keep first aid kit with medicines handy
This tip is applicable in all time but especialy during COVID, try to avoid hospital visits in unknown places. Hence keep your first aid kits and medicines ready. I even had a nebuliser, just in case.
Carry toiletries, towels etc
You should avoid using the towels of the properties you stay in. This is advisable in all time. I used to even carry bed spreads because of this fear. Sounds crazy, I know but this makes me rest assured. Why lose sleep over silly things?
Educate your child
This is the most important. You child is way matured than you think. You child need to take an effort educate your child abour sanitizing, wearing mask the right way, not eating out and many more simple facts which they could take care of themselves.
So, set off with your littles ones for a safe, rejuvenating and exciting travel experience.
