Entertain the Children during the Holiday Journey

Entertain the Children during the Holiday JourneyAs parents, we all know how bored children can get on their way to the family caravan holiday so it’s really important that you keep your children entertained during the journey – to help protect the sanity of your whole family. In this article we discuss just a few things you and your family can do to keep stop boredom on the journey to your caravanning holiday;

  • Play ‘I Spy’, it’s a really simple game where the first person says “I Spy something beginning with …” and then gives the first letter that everyone in the car can see. For example it may be something beginning with ‘c’ and the answer could be cars. Everyone takes turn to guess what it could be and the first one who gets it right is the next person to have a go!
  • Find the Car. The driver calls out a colour and everyone must shout when they see that colour car. The first person to spot five cars of the selected colour wins that round and then chooses the next colour car to spot.
  • Make a Word is a game for older children. You all have to spot words in the number plates on cars that go past you on the road. Numbers can be used as letters, for example 3 can be E and 0 can be O.
  • You can play ‘Catch the Waves’ this is when you wave out the window on your side of the car and count how many people wave back. A time limit is put on the game and the winner is the person who gets the most waves back from drivers.

Questions You Should Ask While Buying Static Caravans

Questions You Should Ask While Buying Static CaravansIf you are planning to buy a new or used static caravan, there are a number of questions that need to be answered. You have to first visit your preferred holiday park so that you can find out if the option you are opting for is right for you and your family. While selecting a static caravan for short breaks in the UK, the questions you require answering are as follows:

Question#1: Does the holiday park offer the facilities you require?

The first question to ask is whether or not the holiday park offers the facilities you and your family wants. If it doesn’t, don’t choose the particular static caravan park as it won’t facilitate you the way you want.

Question#2: What is the total cost involved?

The total cost involved is often more than you are being initially told. You should ask about all the costs that you would have to take care of before you take over the caravan. The costs involved will also include the taxes, maintenance fee and so on.

Question#3: How long does the holiday park open during the year?

Not all the holiday parks stay opened all year round. This is because, well, they are holiday parks! They aren’t supposed to stay open 12 months a year. However, you should emphasis on this question as this can make or break the deal.

Question#4: Can the static caravan be rented out?

You don’t know when you are need of renting out the static caravan for short breaks in the UK. The reason could be that you need money or just cannot live in the caravan for a long time. Whatever the reason is, you should hold the power to rent the caravan out whenever you want. So ask the caravan provider whether or not you have the option to rent the caravan out.

Thus these are some of the most important questions that you have to ask your static caravan provider to make sure that you are investing in the right property. If the caravan provider fails to convince you with their answers, move on to another provider that can satisfy you.

The Life Cycle of a Marshmallow

The Life Cycle of a Marshmallow

The lifecycle of a marshmallow is a pretty sad state of events, it starts out all squishy and happy and then it goes off on a family caravan holiday and gets stabbed through the middle with a stick, fork or prong. The marshmallow then gets put over a BBQ at the holiday park and gets toasted ready for munching by those enjoying their family caravanning holiday. That’s it; the happy squishy marshmallow has been born, stabbed, burnt and then chomped on – what a sorry state of affairs?

If you feel sorry for the marshmallow then why not consider some other sweet treats to enjoy on your caravan holiday, sweet treat ideas that still involve a family BBQ but with no harm to the happy squishy marshmallow?

Maybe try something like chocolate bananas? Take the banana out of its skin, make small slits in the banana and put chocolate buttons into these slits. Then wrap the banana in tinfoil and place in the coals of the BBQ. After a few minutes you will be able to enjoy a delicious (and a little bit healthy) dessert without any harm being caused to happy squishy marshmallows!
