Family travel is one of my favorite things to do with my kids. There’s almost nothing that gives me the same satisfaction as sharing a new experience with them, showing them a new place, and letting them experience something out of the ordinary. You can see some of our favorite vacations and day trips here.
When you’re planning your next trip and looking for ways to make it special, check out the Best Buy Family Travel Tips site. Did you even know this existed? I didn’t either but I love some of their ideas for using technology to make things go smoothly with the kids, and make them more fun!
My favorite idea of theirs is this Photo Scavenger Hunt. Three reasons why this is awesome:
- Every member of the family can get involved.
- It can be easy or challenging, whatever works for you gang!
- It’s an awesome way to collect memories of your trip through everyone’s eyes!
How does it work?
Before the trip, have everyone work together to come up with a list of 10 things that you need to get a picture of during your vacation. Keep them broad so they’re open to interpretation and see what your family comes up with! Some ideas might be a color (blue, purple, etc.), flowers, water, wildlife, or concepts like relaxing, quiet, and exciting. Be creative! There’s no wrong way to do it.
For help with this idea, visit the Best Buy Family Travel Tips site. It’s really fun for each member of the family to have their own camera. Moms and Dads, you may already have one. You can grab inexpensive point and shoot cameras for the kids at Best Buy, and even consider disposable cameras if you have really little ones you don’t exactly trust on their own with electronics. 😉
