Your next family vacation is getting nearer and you are just looking forward to having a break with the rest of your family and enjoying time together.
The exciting build up might distract you from remembering some essentials to pack, so it is always useful to write down a list in advance just so you do not forget anything important.
These are some ideas to get you started for when you start packing.
Any Important Medications
If anyone in the family takes any regular medication you want to make sure that they will have enough to last them until you get back from your vacation.
The last thing you want to do is run out of tablets whilst you are away. So make sure your prescription is all up to date before heading off.
Keep Those Germs At Bay
You still want to be careful with regards to Covid-19 so definitely bring spare face masks, plenty of hand gel and antibacterial wipes for the whole family. They are always useful anyway when you do not have direct access to water and want to give your hands a quick clean.
Pack the Sunscreen and Hats
Sunscreen is an important item to bring especially if you are heading somewhere warm or generally just plan to be outdoors a lot for trips like camping, or going to the beach.
Though it is important for them to get some natural vitamin D from the sun you also need to protect them from any long term skin damage which too much exposure to the sun can cause. It is also worth bringing a sun hat to protect their heads, and of course shades too.
If you have a baby with you then you are certainly going to need to pack a bag just for their items. You will need things such as diapers, baby wipes, baby bottles, feeding equipment, toys, clothes and powdered formula on your list of essentials.
Look For Deals
It is useful to have a look online before you set off in case there are any restaurants or venues where you could make a QR code which could provide a good discount. This can certainly be useful when you have a large family and the food bill is usually quite pricey.
First Aid Kit
This will be particularly useful if you have little ones and they end up grazing their knee or have a cut on their finger that needs attending to. Items like pain relief, plasters, bandages, antiseptic lotion, insect repellant, insect bite relief and antihistamines are useful things to pack in the first aid kit.
It is always best to be prepared, just in case.
