Park Packing Essentials

Kids at Play

Park packing essentials

 

While at the park with my kids today, my younger son asked me for water. I had no water packed. In fact I didn’t even bring a bag with me. My husband walked with one of our kids; me with the other. And we brought NOTHING with us – big mistake. We ended up having to leave the fun prematurely to head home for water, a diaper change and wipes. I now have a proper ‘for trips to the park’ bag all ready for outdoor fun!

Here are my park packing must haves;

  • Diapers and/or clean underwear
  • Wipes
  • Sunscreen
  • Hats
  • Cell phone
  • Healthy snacks – dried fruit and granola bars are our favorites as they pack small and are nutrient rich
  • Water for everyone
  • Small plastic trash bags
  • A few small sand toys
  • A ball for impromptu soccer or catch
  • Small blanket for snack/rest time
  • Camera – your phone may do
