Traveling with your kids can be as challenging as it is rewarding. Fortunately there are plenty of ways to prepare for a trip to help it run smoothly.
Sonya of SeekingGreener.com posted her top 10 family travel tips that are pretty helpful, like to "pack a fun bag for each child," and "create a memory box with souvenirs."
From my experience, the more engaged and involved kids are the better they will be throughout the vacation. Let them in a little on the planning process. Talk up your destination and look at pictures together before you go. While you're traveling, let your kids pick out the restaurant for lunch one day or make other decisions that help them feel included.
And the easiest way to make your next trip with the kids run smoothly?
