Thank you so much to EzPacking for providing product for this post. All opinions, bad jokes and packing faux-pas are 100% my own.
Packing and me have had issues for a long time now.
Today I am going to share something with you that has completed rocked my world. I can’t even begin to explain the awesomeness. PLEASE OBSERVE:
In the second large cube, I packed five sets of shorts and skirts, and also a pair of jeans folded in half. Again, this was a loose fit – I could’ve fitted more if I wanted to.
The shoe bag – what a fantastic idea!! No more sand and dirt in my nice clean suitcase. The bags could easily fit five pairs of sandals/ ballet flats. When not in use, the bags fold up into a tiny little package with an elastic loop to keep them flat.
Here’s a video to show you how it all fits in together:
Right, so that’s the clothes and toiletries sorted in style. (Yes!!) The next step when packing for kids is to think entertainment. Toys can be bulky – but I have a few little tricks up my sleeve here.
I love Usborne activity cards for the amount of entertainment they pack into a small deck of cards. These don’t take up much room at all. Our kids love the “Doodle cards” best – wipe-clean cards that come with a little dry-erase marker and funny, imaginative instructions.
Lego is always a winner, and it’s miniature sizing makes it perfect for travel (providing you’re willing to risk losing a piece in a hotel room here and there.) Minimise the risk by having an “only play at the table” rule. A sandwich keeper is the perfect size to store a small boxed set of Lego with instructions.
