    My top family travel tip is to stay calm and laugh at all the little hiccups that happen during the journey. Children are unpredictable and there is no way I could fully prepare for everything that could go wrong during the trip. I believe how I react will determine how enjoyable the journey will be for myself and my kids.

    My best family travel tip is to go with the flow. Travelling as a family is pretty stressful but I always treat each trip we make as a big adventure and make jokes, tell funny stories and even make puppets out of the sick bags. It usually calms a stressful moment down.

Another top travel game we have is the Flight Night Silence Competition. We play this before going to sleep on the plane: The rule is to be absolutely quiet no matter what anyone does - so no talking at all, no laughing and shouting and giggling --for example- I say things like 'Oh look, there is a purple dinosaur coming out of the bathroom wearing pink shoes', and then usually one child says 'Where Mama? Where? I want to see it?' -then they are out of the game! Winds them up for a bit and then someone who is playing really well usually falls asleep with the effort of being quiet..
    Definitely the most creative ideas/tips. You are the winner!
