Your Next Family Holiday Begins At Home

They may take up the least room on the plane, but their needs take up the most space on our holiday checklists. From where to visit to what to pack, our children are always at the heart of our pre-holiday preparation. Now get them ready for the lessons they’ll gain from travelling. The next time you travel, create your own Holiday Countdown Box, and prepare your child for a brave new world of enriching experiences, even before you take off.

How to create your own Holiday Countdown Box

In the days leading up to your family holiday, leave an object a day in your Holiday Countdown Box based on the topics below. Pair them with our recommended questions and start preparing your child for a richer pre-holiday experience.
