Travelling with family and kids is a lot of fun but stressful at the same time. Some of that can be attributed to things kids need but which we just forget to pack. Here are some tips that will prepare you for some issues that arise when travelling with kids:



One or two weeks before the trip, make a checklist of all the child-specific items you remember during the day. As you gather these items, store them in a grocery bag or box.



Allow each child to bring a small bag of games, toys, stuffed animals or other personal items to make them feel comfortable.



Several months before the trip, find a small toy that your child hasn’t played with in a while. Pack it away for the trip. This will be something ‘new’ to play with.



Kids get dirty very easily, so carry some soap and towels to wipe any mess they make.



Carry some basic but essential medicines — cough syrup, antiseptic cream or lotion, etc.
