During our Escapes month on Ohdeedoh, we are posting great photos and tips for traveling with children from our readers. Please check here for all the details. Hope to hear from you soon.

Look at this adorable pair of beachcombers. Grace and Matthew's mom loves that their favorite activity is absolutely free. All you have to do is remember to pack shovels, buckets, and snacks. What kind of snacks? Why, Pirate's Booty, of course!

Location where photo was taken: This photo was taken at Discovery Bay in Washington State.

Favorite activity: Our favorite thing to do there was beach comb.There are so many activities that cost money, but our kids' favorite activity is free! They love to turn over rocks and find crabs, collect sea shells and rocks and they are even learning to skip rocks.

Best tip: Always have buckets and shovels in the back of the car, so you are ready when you find the perfect beach. Oh, and don't forget towels for dusting off sand out of every part of the kids' body!

How to make it feel like home: Our favorite way to make it feel like home is to have the kids pack one small backpack with whatever toys/stuffed animals they want to bring. That way, they have a few familiar items to play with that they have chosen themselves.

Must-have travel item: An item we must take when traveling is Pirate's Booty!!! It is airy, not much calories, but keeps the kids entertained and munching along in the back seat for a long time.
