    Default Who's taken there kids on holiday for Christmas??

    I was just wondering who has done it and how did it go??
    We have booked three nights away, starting Christmas Eve. This will be the first time we have left town for Christmas, our boys are 6 and 2. And is there any advice you can give me about Christmas's away from home.

    We do it every year. And love it. We go with extended family.

    If you are going somewhere with a pool or the beach and intend to swim a lot pack and extra pair of swimmers for everyone and far less clothes. Take something warm JIC.

    Have fun.

    Thanks, we are booked to take a helicopter to an island near us, so limited baggage allowance. I'm hoping we will be able to take most of the presents. I'm also hoping that it still feels like Christmas to DS1 and DS2.

    I just make sure they bring their own pillow and cuddly toy and a small bag of mixed toys they pick out, & some dvd/s.

    Last time we went I had a whole suitcase just for toys and snacks. I'm thinking I will do that again.
    There's no TV's or phones in the rooms and I'm tossing up whether I should buy a new DVD player to take (last one had an incident with some milk) or keep the holiday electronics free.

    DVD player sounds like a good idea.
