Packing Essentials for Travelling with Kids

As a seasoned family traveller and the author of “Organisation is key! Kids on a Plane,” I understand the importance of being well-prepared when embarking on a journey with children. From my experience, packing efficiently can make all the difference in ensuring a smooth and enjoyable trip. In this section, I’ll share some essential items that should be at the top of your packing list when travelling with kids.

  1. Travel documents: Before you even think about packing clothes or toys, ensure you have all necessary travel documents organised and easily accessible. This includes passports, visas (if applicable), identification cards, health insurance information, and any other relevant paperwork.
  2. Clothing: When it comes to clothing for your little ones, practicality is key. Pack comfortable outfits suitable for different weather conditions and activities. Don’t forget essentials like extra underwear, socks, pyjamas, and swimwear if you’re heading to a beach destination.
  3. Toiletries: It’s always wise to bring along mini-sized toiletries such as toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and wipes specifically designed for children. These will come in handy during long flights or when access to certain products may be limited.
  4. Snacks: Hungry kids can quickly turn into cranky travellers! Pack a variety of healthy snacks that are easy to carry and won’t create messes in your bag or on the plane. Think granola bars, dried fruit packs, crackers, nuts (if allergies permit), and small packets of pre-cut vegetables.
  5. Entertainment: Keep boredom at bay by bringing along entertainment options tailored to your child’s age group. Consider packing colouring books, puzzles, small toys or games that can be easily stowed away in their backpacks or carry-ons.
  6. First aid kit: Accidents happen no matter where you are – it’s always better to be prepared. Pack a compact first aid kit containing band-aids, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers suitable for children, and any necessary prescription medications.
  7. Travel accessories: Don’t forget about the little things that can make your journey smoother. Items like collapsible strollers, baby carriers, car seats (if needed), portable changing mats, and travel-sized laundry detergent can greatly enhance your travel experience with kids.

Remember that every family’s needs may vary based on factors such as destination, duration of the trip, and age of the children. It’s essential to plan ahead and tailor your packing list accordingly.

By packing these essentials for travelling with kids, you’ll be well-prepared to handle any situation that arises during your family adventures. Stay organised and enjoy creating lasting memories together!
