Here on St. Croix you will find a multitude of activities for children and their parents to participate in together…or apart (remember- your kids may want some time away from you, too)! Most places will offer a sitting service if you would like to have dinner alone one evening. Ask your hotel or resort about their activities specifically for kids. Chances are they have a supervised “kids camp” where they can play ping-pong, swim, snorkel, watch a movie and many other island-style activities to keep your children entertained. This will give you a chance to spoil yourself with a beach side massage…or golf…or shopping…or just some quiet time to yourselves. Remember, KIDS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN, so here are a few more fun ideas for kids:
- A travel journal is a unique way to ensure your kids remember their trip to St. Croix. Each night, spend a minute with them as they draw or write about their day. You can buy or make your own personalized travel journal they will cherish for a long time.
- If you have had enough of the pool and beach, make up a scavenger hunt on your hotel property. This is something quick and easy and they will be able explore on their own. Hotel staff is usually accommodating, but make sure you stay safe and your children know their boundaries.
- Buy your child a disposable camera so they can take their own pictures! You will be amazed how the photos will turn out and your child might develop a new hobby.
- Pick up St. Croix postcards from shops and racks at various locations around the island and have your child send them to friends and family back home.
