The scenic metropolis of Albuquerque has been voted as one of the top ten destinations for family fun. Its warm climate, friendly locals, and parks make it perfect for playing outdoors, watching nature and wildlife, and going on rollercoaster rides. But before you pack your bags and leave with the kids, prepare! Here are some tips on how to have unforgettable and uninterrupted fun with your little rascals in Albuquerque:
1. Have Some Entertainment Available on the Road
Parents.com has a list of car games for ages 4 and older. Also, the Team Storytelling Game, where everyone adds a twist and turn in a single storyline, is particularly cool for highly imaginative kids.
2. Carry with You A First Aid And Emergency Kit
What should your medical or emergency kit contain? The checklist should include aspirin, antibiotic ointment packets, antiseptic wipe packets, and tools for dressing wounds. Essential medicines also include antidiarrheal medication, antihistamine, mild laxative, decongestant, and cough drops.
3. Remember That Hungry And Thirsty Kids Are Grouchy Kids
It’s wise to bring light snacks and healthy treats in addition to something a bit more filling. A hydration drink with electrolytes is also a smart choice for traveling kids. You can make your own with the right mix of fruit juice, salt and honey.
4. Talk To Your Children About How To Stay Safe
Included here should be the importance of following park rules. Youngsters like to test boundaries. Sometimes, they pull funny stunts to get a bit of attention too so be clear about the reasons that safety guidelines and signs in parks must be respected and followed.
5. Choose Rides And Activities That Are Age-Appropriate
The good news is that park management will help determine whether a ride or an area is safe for your child. Just respect the guidelines.
Finally, pay attention to the children at all times. It is easy to get distracted by the sights and sounds of a scenic and vibrant wildlife or amusement park (or by your own Instagram post) but make an effort to be observant, alert, and proactive. Traveling with kids can be really fun.
