Top Tips for Traveling with Kids This Summer

Guest post courtesy of Gennifer Rose.

Summer is the time for adventure, and many families pack up their bags to head out and explore together. If you’re traveling far from home with small children things can get a little hectic and parents may have to pull some tricks out of their hats to keep the kids occupied.

Here at Schoola we know adventure doesn't end when the field trips and science projects are over. We asked veteran moms to tell us about their traveling tips to stay sane during days on the road.

10 Popular Resort Kid's Programs

Planning a family vacation can be stressful.  Most resorts have so much to offer, but lots fall short when it comes to entertaining the kids.  Kids want to have fun just like mom and dad, but mom and dad do not necessarily want to do what the kids want to do all day.  Sipping mojitos by the pool sounds like a blast to us adults, but swimming in the pool can only last so long for active, energetic kiddos.

Kids' programs vary by resort, by destination and even by time of year, but having a list of some of the good ones makes the planning process a little smoother.  The programs highlighted are some of the most popular kid and parent-approved programs that are worth taking a second look at.

DIY Pool Party Ideas

The weather is warming up and so is the pool water.  You know what that means?  Pool parties! Think outside the box and ‘wow’ your guests with these fun decorations and treats that are both easy on the pocketbook and easy to DIY.

I pulled these images from my first daughter's 1st birthday party.  Her birthday is July 19th, so we tend to do pool-themed parties each year.  This party was the only one that I truly went all-out for, so I'm excited to share it with you all.
