8 Tips Balik Kampung Bersama Anak Kecil

Updated: Apr 17, 2018


Balik kampung bersama keluarga adalah sesuatu yang menyeronokkan tetapi ia juga boleh menyebabkan stress kepada ibu bapa apabila perjalanan balik tidak mengikut pelan. Terutamanya apabila kita balik kampung semasa musim cuti persekolahan, kita mesti risau tentang trafik. Ada banyak perkara yang perlu difikirkan seperti barang-barang yang perlu dibawa, keadaan kereta dan sebagainya.


Walaubagaimanapun, balik kampung boleh juga dianggap sebagai “road trip” untuk menyemarakkan semangat balik kampung anak-anak. Dan jangan lupa, “road trip” ini boleh mengeratkan hubungan sesama keluarga :)


Tapi kalau anda masih nervous memikirkannya, bacalah tips di bawah:


SEBELUM PERJALANAN:


1. HANTAR KERETA UNTUK SERVIS

Mungkin ini sebenarnya bukan tip, tapi lebih kepada nasihat. Nasihat ini paling penting sebelum balik kampung atau travel, tapi ramai yang mengabaikannya sehingga saat terakhir.


Trafik semasa cuti sekolah kadang-kadang boleh menyebebkan kita tertekan, terutamanya apabila kereta rosak.


Jadi, hantarlah kereta untuk servis kerana untuk menenangkan fikiran dan mengurangkan kecenderungan kemalangan <3


2. TAHU BILA MASA TERBAIK UNTUK MEMULAKAN PERJALANAN


Setiap anak mempunyai personaliti yang berbeza. Oleh itu, ibu bapa perlulah tahu bila masa terbaik untuk memulakan perjalanan. Mereka selalunya moody sebelah petang dan mungkin ini bukan masa terbaik untuk memulakan perjalanan, terutamanya jika anda memandu kereta. Tetapi ini terpulang kepada personaliti anak-anak masing-masing.


3. PASTIKAN MEREKA SUDAH MAKAN


Pergi ke mana-mana dengan anak yang mempunyai perut kosong adalah satu kesilapan besar. Sebelum bertolak dari rumah, pastikan mereka sudah makan. Anda tak perlulah masak makanan istimewa, tapi pastikan ada makanan kegemaran mereka atau makanan yang mereka pasti akan makan.


4. BEKALKAN SNEK UNTUK SEMUA



Semasa dalam perjalanan, adalah sangat penting untuk membawa bekalan snek untuk ibu bapa dan juga anak-anak. Makanan berat atau ringan, itu terpulang kepada cita rasa dan diet masing-masing.


Yang penting, ada makanan yang sekeluarga suka makan untuk mengurangkan rasa bosan dan menenangkan mood mereka semasa perjalanan. Bayangkan, mereka mesti rasa bosan setelah beberapa jam duduk dalam car seat!


Idea makanan yang boleh disediakan adalah seperti buah-buahan, nasi goreng, mee hoon goreng dan sebagainya. Makanan ini bolehlah diasingkan dalam bekas masing-masing untuk memudahkan memakan dalam kereta.


Oh ya, jangan lupa untuk bawa coffee tin juga! Kalau ibu bapa mengantuk, boleh la minum coffee.


5. PASTIKAN LAMPIN SUDAH DITUKAR


Sebelum bertolak dari rumah, pastikan pampers si kecil sudah ditukar. Bagi anak-anak yang lebih tua, pastikan mereka sudah ke tandas sebaik sebelum memulakan perjalanan.


6. BAWA ALAT PERMAINAN

Ini merupakan salah satu strategi yang efektif. Kalau mereka dapat permainan kegemaran mereka atau permainan yang baharu, ia mungkin boleh membuat mereka rasa seronok ketika bermain dalam kereta.


SEMASA DALAM PERJALANAN


7. MENYANYI LAGU KEGEMARAN SEISI KELUARGA



Okay, sebenarnya apabila kita sebut “lagu kegemaran”, kita maksudkan lagu kegemaran budak-budak. Kalau perjalanan balik kampung mengambil masa selama 7 - 8 jam, mestilah sediakan lagu kegemaran sama ada dalam bentuk CD atau flash drive. Ibu bapa boleh beli DVD Omar & Hana di sini.


Selain itu, lagu-lagu Omar dan Hana kini boleh didengari di Spotify? Ibu bapa bolehlah download Spotify App di handphone masing-masing untuk mendengar lagu-lagu Omar dan Hana.


8. DOA, DOA DAN DOA


Akhir sekali, jangan lupa untuk berdoa sebelum bertolak dan sepanjang dalam perjalanan! Kita hanya boleh merancang, tapi Allah SWT adalah Perancang segalanya.

7 BALIK KAMPUNG TIPS WITH CHILDREN


Travelling with a small or big family can be exciting and nerve-wrecking, all at the same time.


There are so many things to think about; where should we stay, how do we manage the kids, what if they have a melt-down, you name it! These are only the few questions that run through your mind.


If you are nervous about travelling with kids, here are some tips for you.


BEFORE THE JOURNEY:


1. GET YOUR CAR SERVICED


This is probably the most important reminder. Yet despite that, we all tend to procrastinate and only send our cars for service at the very. last. minute.


Traffic during peak season can be very stressful to both the family and the car.


If the car is in a good condition, then it minimizes road accidents. So don’t forget to service your car <3


2. KNOW WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TRAVEL WITH YOUR KIDS


This can be a very tricky thing to understand and figure out. You want to travel in the time of day that is most suitable for your kids to prevent them from bursting into tears and having major melt-downs.

For instance, most kids tend to be really cranky during the evenings. Therefore, if you plan to travel by car and the journey takes several hours, it’s not a good idea to start the journey in late evenings.


But this all depends on you and what is most convenient for you and your family. Whatever it is, safety is always the number one priority.


3. MAKE SURE KIDS ARE FED BEFORE YOU LEAVE


Before starting any trip, you always need to make sure that the kids are well fed before you start your journey. A hungry baby is a cranky baby. And a cranky baby can make a trip stressful.


Always make the time to provide the meal that your kids will definitely eat because you would need to make only necessary stops such as toilet breaks, diaper change and short rests.


You don’t have to be a chef and whip up a storm on the day of your travel because obviously, you don’t want to start the journey already tired. Something simple and easy but a winner meal for your kids will hopefully make your journey a relatively smooth one.

4. SNACK PACKS - KIDS AND PARENTS


When travelling, it’s always important to pack snacks for both you and your children.

Snacks can help calm a cranky baby. Sometimes when they are sleepy but are forced to sit in a carseat, having something to suck and chew on; whether it’s a bottle or a biscuit will help to sleep.


Don’t forget that you will also need to pack snacks for yourselves in case you get bored and tired. Coffee, and easy snacks are really helpful!


5. ENSURE DIAPERS HAVE BEEN CHANGED


Always always always check your kids’ diapers before you leave.


If you have toddlers, try to get them to go to the restroom because you don’t want to do too many stops if you can help it.


6. PACK JUST ENOUGH TOYS


We can’t stress this enough, this may be one of the most essential items for travelling. Pack a few of your kids’ favourite toys and a new toy that they have never played before so that they will be happy and excited about their new toy.


We have also recently launched the Flash Felt My Baby Can Read Omar & Hana which can is a great way for the kids to play in the car.


Toys aren’t just to keep the preoccupied but it also helps them to develop their senses such as their vision, motor skills as well as understanding cause and effect relationships.

Whether it’s their favourite activity books, plush toys you might want to get their favourite ones ready in case you run out of ideas in the car or plane.


WHILE TRAVELLING:


7. SING ALONG TO YOUR FAVOURITE SONGS


If you’re driving, it’s best to get ready your favourite playlist. Compile your favourite CD, mp4 player, flash drive, itunes or spotify playlist. Sometimes you want to have a little fun karaoke session with you and the kids when you’re stuck in traffic. To purchase Omar and Hana's songs in DVD, you can visit the website here.


We've also launched Omar and Hana on Spotify!


Don’t expect the kids to magically sing along to their favourite songs though. Singing to babies help boost their developmental skills such as hearing and speech development.


Research has also shown that singing helps to soothe babies much better than talking.

You might sound like a broken record, especially when you sing the same song over and over and over again. But trust us, babies and toddlers love to hear nursery rhymes especially ones that are sung by their parents!


We hope these tips and tricks will help smoothen your journey back home! Always remember to stay safe!
