As parents, we want to give our children the best. So we stock up on great toys and books, ensure they eat nutritional food and enroll them into the best of schools. We do this because we want them to grow up in an ideal environment to become well-rounded individuals, right?
But amongst all that we give our children, the gift of experience is what they will cherish the most! And what better way to gift them an experience, than to gift them a lovely family vacation?
With family vacation we don’t mean, limiting the experience to the TV in the hotel room! It means encouraging your kids to experience everything the place has to offer. Here is why, vacations are the best…
When education is fun, it is bound to leave an unforgettable memory. While holidays seem like only fun and games, kids can also learn a great deal about the culture and geography of your vacation destination!
We might have admired the scenic views around when on holiday, but when was the last time we actually allowed our kids to stop and smell the roses? Vacation time is a great opportunity to experience nature up, close and personal.
Kids need plenty of physical activity, but opportunities are limited in our space-crunched cities. So if your holiday destination has avenues for scuba diving or trekking, allow your child to try them.
With the advent of technology in classrooms, kids are able to visualize what they learn. But learning is enriched further when experienced first-hand, like on travel.
After suffering from the polluted air in our cities, we need to give our kids a break and a chance for their health to rejuvenate.
So the next time you want to gift your little one a new toy, hold back. Gift an experience for a lifetime instead!
