Activities to do with the kids whilst you’re caravanning

Keeping the kids entertained whilst on holiday doesn’t have to be a chore; there are plenty of things to do that don’t cost a thing!

1.Go to the beach. Kids love to play in the sand, splash around, build sandcastles, or cast a line into the sea.

2.Play ball – Kids of all ages will appreciate it if you bring a sports ball on holiday with you. They can easily make friends and play a game.

3.Getting in touch with nature is one thing we can all appreciate. There is much to learn about our native wildlife and flora, and kids will love to explore.

4.Campfire stories – Telling stories never goes out of fashion! With everyone snuggled around the campfire with marshmallows and warm drinks, little ears will love to listen to fun campfire stories about the places you’re visiting.
