Who knew the giant Lonely Planet had an entire section dedicated to a family travel blog? This piece of the site is fully-loaded with books that will ignite the wanderlust in your child and help them feel like they are part of the planning process. With fun covers and interesting pictures filling every page, the site (and the books) are a wonderful resource for travelling families.
Several of the books found on this site are great activity options to bring along on long flights or plane journeys. Others give “Everything you ever wanted to know” about locations around the world. Of course, you can preview each of the books to find the ones that best suit your children’s needs and desires. An entire section is also devoted to activity sheets such as “How to be a World Explorer,” which tests children’s knowledges of various locations around the world. Of course, no kids’ website would be complete without games and apps available for download..
Whether you are planning a weekend trip or a long-term family vacation, Lonely Planet’s family travel blog website (called Lonely Planet: Kids) is a great jumping off point for ways to increase your kids’ knowledge and fascination with the world around them.
