We do our fair share of traveling, and over the years we’ve developed some systems that work really well for our family. One of these is a travel kit for children. No matter where we are, whether it’s a on road trip to California or on a train across Europe, we pack a little Zip-Lock bag filled with the essentials.
Travel Kit for Children:
- wet wipes
- hand sanitizer
We pack it all up in a Zip-Lock bag for the inevitable explosion, and pop it into a backpack. When we were in Warsaw we never left the apartment without a backpack + this little handy travel kit. You never know about bathrooms, pinching shoes, or bad breath.
And someone’s always complaining about chapped lips. Without fail.
In Europe we replenished the kit every time we ran out of something so we weren’t caught unawares in some hilarious bathroom situations. Plus, you always need hand sanitizer when you’re riding in cable-cars and underground trains. Nasty.
As long as we carry this with us, along with a bottle of water and a snack or two, we’re set for miles and miles.
