A motorhome holiday with children

A Motorhome holiday is always fun regardless if it is just you and your friends, your other half or even the whole family. At Easicampers Wigan a lot of families have hired our motorhomes and campervans and they all had a fab time and the kids love the outdoors. However, if you are considering taking the children you need to ensure you are fully prepared for the journey ahead of you and have done everything you can to save you a stressful experience further down the line.

Even though an Easicampers motorhome is always a specious environment for your getaway, bringing little ones requires even more space. This comes as children love to be able to run around, play together and need more storage space for bringing things such as clothing or gadgets. This In turn means that getting a more spacious motor home could work in your benefit, especially when you consider that within a bigger motorhome there are more births to be able to sleep in and you will not have to disturb the furniture when it comes to bedtime. This may seem like a strange benefit but when you consider you will be probably staying up a little later than the children will and they will probably be awake slightly earlier than you will.

Pack Snacks
Little ones can be bribed with snacks very easily and in turn, this can keep them calm on long journeys, in the evening before bed and in a range of other situations. Although it is not the healthiest of options, if it is given to them in small amounts and only every so often, it can be a great way to calm them down and keep them quiet. Children often prefer different foods to adults so packing their favourite foods and packing some more mature food is always a good idea if you want to be able to keep everyone happy, including yourself.

Use a Site
Children love to be able to mingle with other children and in turn, opting for a site over a wild camping experience always works out more beneficial to yourself. A variety of sites come with things such as parks, children’s crèche’, childcare and a whole load of other attractions for the little ones to be able to mingle with other children and have fun. Therefore, opting for this over a normal wild camping experience seems like a no brainer with children.

Book Activities
Booking activities for your child on the getaway is very important as if you do not, you will simply get complaints about boredom and monotony. Try booking things such as stop off locations along the way in various castles or small theme parks to be able to tease the fun nature into the children. There are thousands of small locations across the country that you can visit and spend an hour or two to keep the children happy for a few more hours on the road. Things such as Jump Nation, Water world or Silver Blades Ice Rink can be amazing places to be able to kill a few hours and keep the children quiet for the day.

Organisation in a motorhome holiday is key. Things such as planning a few rainy day backups, planning the route and organising the things you pack all require a level of skill and perseverance, as something is bound to go wrong and it is important to know that you’ve planned ahead to prevent it. Remember to plan things such as board games, indoor activity backups such as the cinema, Eden Project, water world and other variations as these activities can go a long way in ensuring the children don’t complain if something falls through due to the British weather.
