All the latest inspiration and guidance for help you plan your next family hoilday

The invasion of Ukraine by Russia is devastating. And, as parents, we know how upsetting and confusing the news about current events can be for children.

So, we wanted to show our support for Ukraine in a small way. Through an engaging activity pack, we’d like to help children (and parents) learn more about Ukraine, its people and its fascinating history and culture. We felt this was important given historical attempts of cultural erasure in Ukraine.

Our product manager, Katie Stepek, has put the pack together. Ukraine is close to Katie’s heart as her grandfather was born in what is now modern-day Ukraine in 1922, and was there when Russia invaded in 1939.

Our Ukraine activity pack is designed to help your family discover more about the country’s food, people and traditions through facts, recipes, creative activities and phrases to learn. Destination-specific activity packs are an important part of tripAbrood and we send them to every family following a booking made with us. We are passionate about the importance of children learning more about the world they live in.

If this pack provokes questions from your children about the conflict, Save The Children has a useful article with tips from a psychologist and child counsellor here. And, if you would like to donate to Save The Children’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, you can do so here.

We hope that you enjoy the pack.
