How do you plan travel for a range of ages and interests and not lose anyone?

Planning Travel for All Ages and Interests | Life as MOM

When you have six kids, you are basically signing up for a season of spinning plates. The age range can make it quite a feat of mental gymnastics to keep everyone engaged and involved in the program of the day. I feel this in homeschooling when I plan for group activities. I also feel this with travel plans.

I wrote about this phenomena a few years ago on Simple Homeschool:

Some learning experiences, like gutting a fish on a camping trip, are more appropriate for certain ages than others. And in a large family, there’s the rub. We are eager to share the world with our children, particularly on vacation and family field trips, but with a large family or even two children born many years apart, it can be challenging to create experiences appropriate to all the ages and stages of our children.

  • What if the baby can’t handle such a long day in the mountains?
  • What if the older children are bored at the children’s museum?
  • What if it’s just too hard to take everyone to that amusement park?

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
