Travel with Kids: Preparing for Malaysia and The Philippines

We at Kidz Activities believe in travel with kids as a means to create wonderful family memories and to broaden their hearts and minds, as they experience new things and learn about different cultures. We often immerse ourselves in the logistics - where to go, where to stay and where to eat. But when we travel with kids, it is just as important to prepare them. Let them know where we are going (map it out), how long will it take to get there, what types of food will be there, what we can expect. Preparing them mentally will not only make them feel more confident, but it is also part of the learning that takes place when we travel. Here we share the simple travel information pack we put together for our kids for our upcoming trip to Malaysia and the Philippines.
