It’s that time of the year again! Everyone is jolly (well almost everyone) and the air is filled with holiday cheers from coast to coast. Some families may be visiting relatives this holiday season and have to travel coast to coast. These holiday travelers will probably take to the air to complete their family visits this Christmas season. For the rest of us, we will be loading up in the family car, SUV, or the mini van. Keeping the kids happy and calm on these long holiday trips can be challenging at times. Most parents already know what they are in store for, but how many are going to try and help the children stay happy this year?
I think letting your child have an early Christmas present this year, might just do the trick. A gift they can take along for one of these long rides to Grandma’s house. There are a lot of good gifts for children in the traveling department. Depending on your price range, you should be able to get a couple of these items to help out on the holiday trip this year. If you really want to make the kids happy, so they can have that happy face on for the relatives, check out the Sony psp for a travel toy this year. This item is basically a Playstation, but its a portable Playstation, so its perfect to bring on the road. You can give the portable gaming system to your child now and then on Christmas Day, you can let Santa bring a few new games for this mini version of the popular Playstation system.
Overall, there really isn’t any magical way of keeping the kids happy the whole time. If Mom and Dad can get a little creative now and think of a few surprises to hand out along the way, I think they might just have the best family trip ever. Especially if one of those surprises, turns out to be a Sony PSP gaming console.
Please enjoy this precious family time with your children this year. These are the things our kids will remember decades from now and so will you! Don’t forget to buckle up and drive safe. I wish everyone a happy, safe, and healthy Christmas in 2010!
