These packing tips for families will help on your next trip because planning for any trip is stressful, but adding kids takes it to another level. With the addition of each child comes more clothes, toys in every shape and size, and the need for new packing strategies. As a parent you need to have a game plan in place. There are things you will need to do before you go, things you will have to pack in your suitcase, and things you will need on the plane. Here are our tips for managing the mounds of clothes, eliminating the extras, and saving space in your suitcase.
Over the years we have logged numerous hours on plane rides with our children. We have lived through the whining, the begging, the spills, the tears, and unfortunately, the throw up. No amount of preparation can prevent undesired outcomes, but having some tricks up your sleeve can hopefully limit the problems and minimize the complaints. The toys and games I’m recommending are some of our favorites. You’ll find classics and new ones for this season, as well as toys for boys and girls, young and old. Whatever you choose, your kids are sure to be entertained on the plane.
