Do you have any idea what an extraordinary proportion of presents we give our children aren’t actually wanted or valued? Some parents waste their money on toys for their children, when instead they should be spending their money on motorhome holidays instead.
Children will grow out of toys given to them as presents it’s a fact but you can never take away the kids memories they experience whilst on a family holiday.
Family holidays are definitely valued by children, both in the moment and for long afterwards in their memory. So if you’re going to spend money on something, it’s pretty clear which option makes more sense.
Research indicates that, despite the fact that we go on buying more stuff, adults really regard experiences like travel as far more fulfilling. When it comes to children are no different. It’s just that they value different aspects of that travel.
The first and simplest mistake that a lot of parents make is confusing what they find exciting about a holiday with what their children will. So many of the interesting things about a new place can be boring to the vast majority of children. So your child is unlikely to enjoy being dragged round places you may enjoy. This is why it’s important to focus on what they enjoy.
What kind of holiday is best for children?
Children enjoy all sorts of holidays providing there is plenty of exploring involved. When you take children with you on a motorhome holiday though, it adds extra excitement because of the travelling involved. When your hire a motorhome from Priory Rentals we allow you to take your motorhome anywhere across Europe. This allows you to take your children to multiple locations in one holiday which is what kids love.
The exam system that we put children through these days can be incredibly stressful, just as much so as the strains of adult life. Holidays remove us from our highly pressured everyday lives which enables everyone to relax and be playful together.
It is talking nonsense with your parents, sharing an ice cream and moments of time in which your interests are genuinely taken into account.
Of course, were not saying to forget toys altogether as they are all about play too. Or they should be. Increasingly, modern toys put distance between family members, removing children to their own room, screen and insular worlds. Whereas when you are back in your motorhome in you can bring back out the board games for the family to really interact. That is what children value and it’s certainly what they remember.
We also have pet friendly motorhomes which allow you to bring along your pets with you on your holiday. This way you really do have all the family away together.
So perhaps you only go on a motorhome holiday once a year, or maybe you have never been on a family motorhome holiday. Now is the time hire a motorhome and get planning your motorhome holiday today.
