Yippee, it’s the school holidays!
The older kids have been learning to pack their own travelling stuff.
Last year, Vee forgot to pack his underwear for an entire trip. Good natural consequence — now he remembers it every. single. time.
So for the upcoming trip, I just had to tell the older boys how many days we’d be off.
We estimated the number of sets of going out clothes, underwear (!) and indoor / sleeping clothes. Then they dug the stuff out and let me pack into one big vacuum bag each.
They prepared some on-the-go activities, such as puzzles, games and stationery.
Finally, they reminded me to pack their socks, slippers and vitamins and we’re good to go.

For toddlers, avoid materials that are sharp or are choking hazards.
All the best!
