Use Painter's Tape To Keep Kids Safe While Traveling

When you check into your hotel room, it's quite normal to let the kids run wild as you unpack, check your itinerary and stretch out from a long drive or flight. But while you're relaxing a little, are your tiny tots finding new ways to hurt themselves? Stay on top of them with a roll of painter's tape!

Just because you've taken the time to protect the outlets or easily accessed drawers and windows in your own home, doesn't mean your temporary sleeping quarters will have the same level of safety. When you check in, bust out a roll of painter's tape and cover any outlets that could have something accidentally shoved in them.

The tape won't leave any residue when you check out and even if your toddler is hanging out on the ground for a bit, there's no worry that they can get themselves into trouble. You can also tape the drawers in your nightstands closed, your phone down (if you have one who's super adventurous) or even the cord to the blinds up and out of the way.

It might sound overly cautious, but knowing you're prepared no matter what situation you find yourself in can be comforting in itself, even if you don't have to put your methods to use!
