Everything in One PlaceFamily three kids pulling suitcases into airport

  • What: Complete list of family trip essentials
  • When: Going on family trips
  • Why: Make life easier
  • Where: At home

Each day we highlighted one item we used extensively during our trip, from entertainment to necessities like food and water. Our three kids, at ages 11, 9, and 7, now pack their own travel entertainment bags and their clothes as well. Some items, therefore, were chosen entirely by the kids, while some we packed to make our lives easier.

Now, at the end of the series, you can find all the topics from our Family Trip Essentials Guide in one place. Looking for our favorite snacks to pack? Maybe you want to find the best packing system. If your next trip involves travel and kids, check out these great resources to make packing and vacationing simpler and focus more on fun.
