Whether you are jetting away to see family and friends this year or are facing several car journeys whilst doing the rounds, the Thomas Cook Kids Club have some great activities and games to keep your little ones occupied.

The Fly Thomas Cook Kids club is an online resource with downloadable and printer-friendly activity sheets to keep children occupied and entertained during travel. Split into 4 sections, Before We Go, At the Airport, On the Plane, and At the Beach this site is packed with dot to dot’s, downloadable travel stories, mazes, colour by numbers and more. There are even memory card games which can help the kids learn another language (everyone should be able to say “ice cream” in more than one language).

And the best part? They are free!

As well as these fantastic sanity saving games and activities, Thomas Cook Fly have included some great easy to read information for the grown ups. There is a section on travelling with pregnant / with a newborn, teaching kids to prepare their own luggage, involving your kids in the holiday destination and more. All great tips which can be adapted for use at home and away.

We are not travelling this year but I’ll be using some of these puzzles to keep my eldest occupied during the lull between Xmas and New Year!

Travel safe all and have a lovely Christmas and New Year!
