Before you go: It doesn’t take much to get younger children excited and they will be delighted to be spending more time with their grown-ups. Manage the excitement levels with a holiday countdown sticker chart, so they can see for themselves how long until the holiday adventure begins. They could be your packing helper, picking out their favourite clothes and comforters to take. You can also get them interested by talking about the beaches, the warm sea and all the fun activities you’ll be trying as a family.
When you get there: Head to the beach for exciting pirate adventures. Collect shells and make beach art with them. See how big a hole you can dig and build sandcastles – the bigger the better! The beach is an endless source of entertainment and if heading to the Med, nice and warm too. Away from the beach, little ones will be able to play in the pool and if going to kids’ club will be so busy with activities and having so much fun they won’t want to leave. Pre-schoolers on a Neilson Beachclub holiday will enjoy amongst other things arts and crafts, face and body painting, sailing, tennis and kayaking.
