Day trip essentials

We are not a family that is blessed with money, what money we do have we work very hard for. Each year we save to try and get away as a family for 3 or 4 days. Increasingly we have opted to take up special offers on entrance tickets to attractions leading us to enjoy a few day trips on top of our usual family holiday.

Some people I know can’t be bother by the hassle of getting everything ready for just one day, but actually I don’t think you need that much. Most of the things you need you probably already have in your changing bag.

Day trip essentials

  • Nappies, wipes, nappy bags
  • First aid kit, inc. antibacterial gel
  • Stérimar® Baby, great for keeping little noses clean and fresh as well as washing wounds
  • Spare underwear for the children (unless you too have a weak bladder)
  • Plastic bottles/sippy cup – better to drink water than fizzy drinks, they can also be easily refilled at water fountains
  • Picnic, much cheaper to pack sandwiches, crisps, and snacks than to buy meals in resort attractions (if convenient leave in the boot of your car in a cool bag to save carrying)
  • Rain macs – the type you fold up in a small bag, they take up very little room under the pushchair and are light to wears if you get caught in a shower

Personally I keep one of the children’s Trunki‘s in the boot of the car with extra clothes, a towel, carrier bags and bottled water in.

What do you pack for day trips?
