Remember the good ol’ days? You’d roll out of bed at whatever o’clock on a Saturday morning with zero plans and just go with the flow, move with the groove. Yep, those days are a thing of distant memory now.
But it’s not all doom and gloom. Having young children is a great excuse to head out and see the world; these trips just need a bit of prep time and a touch more organisation.
Here’s a small, simple guide to help you start prepping like a pro for those magical, memory making trips with your kids.
Decide Where To Go
An obvious first step you may think, but deciding where to go can play a huge part in how the day pans out. Take some time to research all the options. What’s the weather going to be like? Will they need coats? Is there parking? Baby-changing facilities? These little things can really make a difference when it comes to an easy day out.
Lost for ideas? Google is your best friend. You could check out the animals at Chester Zoo, or visit your favourite peace maker Peppa Pig in her world at Paulton Park.
Think Of The Journey
Keep those little ones comfortable! One way to maintain optimum comfort levels is with the Trunki Yondi. This wonderfully wild travel pillow is specially designed to provide 360 support to avoid neck pain and stiffness. It connects under the chin with hidden magnets and allow little ones to snooze in style. We’re especially big fans of the Yondi due to the fab designs that they come in. Our favourites are Dudley the Dino and Leeroy the Lion.
Pack The Essentials
Comfort is key…and so are snacks. If you’re driving, make sure you have a bag of essentials containing things such as toys and treats. The Trunki suitcases are perfect for storing away all of your little ones bits and pieces. With an 18 litre capacity, you can even bring along the kitchen sink, and it’ll fit right in the corner of the boot. Easy.
If you’re not driving, a good way to do long distance trips is via train. They can be much more entertaining for children and mean that you can sit and interact with them, rather than warding off never end wails of boredom whilst trying to concentrate on driving. It’s best to book seats in advance so that you can grab a table and make sure your near to storage for your pushchair.
A great pushchair for public transport is the Cosatto Supa Go. This transport friendly umbrella fold pushchair is the commuters best friend and the lightweight aluminium chassis makes this stroller perfect for travelling, getting you from A to B with smooth streamlined simplicity.
