Unfortunately, being able to find the time and money to travel all over the world to new lands isn’t always the easiest. Sometimes a getaway that’s close and convenient is the best option.

Having a go-to getaway can be the most relaxing and ideal scenario for some people. What I’m offering is adding something new and exciting to your average escape.

5 Tips  For Camping With Kids

5 Tips For Camping With Kids


It’s quite easy to just let your kids roam free as soon as you reach the campground. But in order to get there, some kind of road trip is required. It may not be that long – I’m talking about one and a half to two hour trip – or if you’re crazy, you have managed to book a campsite around 3-4 hours away. And the kids… They never stay still. Here are five skills you would need to learn in order to survive your next camping trip whilst on the road:

1. The skill to change diaper standing up.
If you have the best planning skill ever and you know where to find the side-of-the-road rest area with clean toilet on the way to your campground, then great. But for most of us, we can’t exactly time when that little terror needs a diaper change, so this skill is required. To learn this, practice at home. In the beginning you may need your partner’s help – he/she stands up holding the wailing monster in the air while you then change the diaper to a clean one. Make sure you also practice not to get any ‘residue’ on your partner’s clothes while you’re doing that.
