Congratulations! You've just booked your trip to Estes Park, gotten your Mustang Mountain Coaster passes and your family couldn't be more thrilled. Now what?
When it comes to packing and preparing for a family vacation, stress and overwhelm are common feelings. Sure, you're excited to experience a new place and try new, fun activities, but actually getting your family from point A to point B in one piece can feel challenging.
There is so much to pack, so much to consider and even more to remember. Here are some tips on getting your family to your next destination without a hitch.
Create a Packing List
Figuring out what needs to be packed is the first step to packing for a whole family. This could be as simple as a list on a piece of paper or in a Google doc. Whatever you choose to use, remember to write down everything.
Make a list of items that need to be grabbed the morning of travel. Since you'll need your toothbrush in the morning and likely won't pack it the day before, a list will help you remember to grab it before leaving the house.
If you are packing for multiple people, consider creating multiple lists. Each person should have their own lists, since they have their own needs (think: a baby versus a teen).
Consider Travel Entertainment
With all of the hubbub of packing for an entire family, travel entertainment may fall by the wayside. Remember that you'll be spending time on an airplane, in a car or somewhere you'll be waiting for a long period of time.
If your kids are older, they can all pack their own backpacks. Encourage them to bring a variety of entertainment to keep them occupied during long waiting periods. Similarly, make sure you have enough entertainment to keep yourself sane while corralling kids in an airport and experiencing potential travel delays.
Gear for Your Adventures
It's also important to pack for your adventures! A reusable water bottle, backpacks and swimwear are just a few examples of items that will be useful during your trip.
Look through your vacation itinerary and determine what you’ll need to make every experience the best one.
