Diamond Resorts International® Timeshare -- Offers Activities for Children Around the World

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - July 21, 2016) - Traveling with children can be a fun, rewarding experience, both for the kids and the parents. Of course, younger children need to keep their minds occupied, which can be a challenge during long car trips or on flights. Diamond Resorts International® timeshare, the world's leading global resort network of vacation ownership properties with over 420 destinations around the world, has created a list of great activities guaranteed to keep the little ones happy, busy and exercising their creativity for extended periods.

According to Diamond Resorts International® timeshare experts, some of the most fun and often overlooked items that young kids will enjoy come not from the toy store but from the office supply store. Clear adhesive tape is an excellent source of amusement. Giving kids their own roll of tape to use however they want is a special treat - a chance to "waste" something they're not usually allowed to use at home. They can draw moustaches and tattoos with a marker and stick them on, make funny faces with tape to pull up noses and ears, or just go crazy and wrap the whole car seat with it. Adhesive tape is generally easy and fast to remove, but it's still good to set some ground rules on what can and cannot be a place for sticking. Pipe cleaners are another excellent option for killing some time. They might make figures and puppets or even larger sized masks that kids can wear. Post-it® notes are another unexpectedly creative source of fun - for example, to make a fishing game with a pencil, string and some Post-it® fish scattered on the car floor. Another fun household item that kids will enjoy and find many uses for is basic tin foil. A roll is easy to bring along and it can be scrunched up and used for making animals, letters and so forth. Think of it as modeling clay without the mess.

Diamond Resorts timeshare professionals remind parents not to overlook some of the more time-proven items that can provide hours of fun. A mini white board and markers are a great toy, whether for simply drawing or for playing games like hangman and Pictionary®. The single board is easy to pack and much less messy than a big pad of paper. For parents who might be concerned about the markers ending up on things other than the board, like clothes and upholstery, a Magna Doodle is another great childhood classic. And kids of all ages love traditional Mad Libs, which have been cracking-up generations of children since 1958. Many are available online to easily print out and stick in the glove compartment for an emergency chuckle.
