The Easter bunnies are hard at work!
Easter baskets? Candy? Egg colouring? Families who travel to Kelowna hotels might find it difficult to maintain the typical Easter traditions they would normally do at home. Here are some tips for traveling with kids this Easter to help you survive and enjoy your holiday!
Replace the basket with a bag: You can’t exactly carry a large Easter basket on the airplane without your little one noticing, so replace it with an Easter goodie bag. Easter-themed goody bags can be found in most stores, and you can bring along the components (candy, stuffies, etc.) and assemble it in your Kelowna hotel room before the little one awakens on Easter morning.
App it up: Easter egg decorating? “There’s an app for that!” If you are on the road and can’t colour eggs this Easter, download a fun egg dyeing app. It’s lots of fun—with less mess! And your little ones will be kept busy for hours. The iTunes App Store includes several good options.
Educational Easter games: At our Kelowna hotel, we offer wireless internet service among our many amenities. You can use it to connect to online educational Easter games from a site like Primary Games. These are handy to have bookmarked to give kids something new to do when they start to get out-of-sorts from traveling.
Check into local events: Know when and where Kelowna events are happening.
Keep ‘em on schedule: Traveling always throws a monkey wrench into your schedule. As much as possible try and stick to routine as you would at home; particularly for naps and meals. Choosing a room that has kitchen facilities or a separate sleeping area for your little one might help. The Best Western Kelowna Hotel offers many room types to choose from.
We hope you have a wonderful Easter holiday and if you have any questions about reserving your hotel room in Kelowna, contact us!
