Holidays are a great way for children to create memories that will stay with them forever.
According to Bob Atkinson, Travel Expert at TravelSupermarket, youngsters get a real sense of adventure from going away, while it is also an opportunity for parents to spend quality time with their offspring.
Mr Atkinson, speaking to Female First, said he thinks people should do their utmost to get their kids involved in the holiday process, so letting them pack their own suitcase is a good idea.
As well as this, showing them maps and photographs of the location will help to get them excited about their impending trip.
"Pack a few toys, snacks and favourite books in your hand luggage to help curb boredom on the flight or in the car," Mr Atkinson observed.
Another top idea is to encourage youngsters to keep a travel journal, he added, as this can act as a great memory bank for the future.
Research by TravelSupermarket found that America, Spain, Australia, Legoland and their grandma's house are among the favourite destinations for five to nine-year-olds.
