TAMING TOTS ON THE GO THIS HALF TERM

Travelling to the airport with more than one child this half term could be a little like taking a herd of wild sheep on holiday, but with a bit of preparation and plenty to occupy them during the journey you can make that trip much easier!  Here are our top tips to taming tots whilst travelling this October half term!
 
Tech to the rescue
Once the traditional colouring in and I spy games wear off, there are a raft of wonderful apps to keep your toddlers entertained. Popular apps include Little Fox Music Box, Subway Surfers, Minecraft, PicsArt Kids, Busy shapes and Petting Zoo. If you are using a smartphone, make sure you set your phone settings accordingly or you may find you arrive home to a nifty roaming bill.
 
Pack snacks

Pack plenty of healthy snacks.  Foods that take longer to eat will occupy your child for a longer. A box of raisins is great because it contains natural sugars, takes longer to chew and less mess involved. Sweets can be a great bribe for good behaviour, but we all know trying to keep a tot in their seat after a dose of Haribo can be quite the challenge!
 
Pillow talk
Sitting on a pillow can allow your toddler to see better out of the window, not only keeping your child occupied with the outside world but to also take a more comfortable nap.
 
Golden time
Your child won’t stay a child forever and if you are a working parent a half term or holiday will be prime time to catch up with your children and a chance for you to engage with them. So take travel time as golden time to talk, discuss ideas, places to visit, create stories and read to them!
 
A little help from your friends
Finally, don’t be scared to ask for help. For the best way to reach Stansted Airport this half term, travel non-stop with the new Stansted Citylink which has a non-stop coach service from London Kings Cross St Pancras.  Drivers will assist you and your family with loading and unloading luggage giving you time to board in comfort. Stansted Citylink offers half price travel for children under 16 travel and infants under 3 travel free. Adult tickets are priced £8 one way and £15 return. Book today!
