MAKE A LIST BEFORE PACKINGBefore you start packing for your trip, make a list. Make a list for each family member, and list items in categories so you know you have everything you could possibly need. Making a list in advance will make it less likely that you’ll forget something. You also have something to check off against as you’re packing to leave. The feeling of forgetting something is the worst, but with a list you don’t need to worry.
TAKE EMERGENCY NUMBERS AND KITSMake sure you take any emergency numbers you might need. Write these down in a notebook, or somewhere you will always be able to access them. Write down any family numbers you might need, and even emergency numbers for the place you’re visiting. It’s also wise to pack a small emergency kit for each family member. This kit could contain a drink/snack, toothbrush, and anything else they might need at a moment’s notice. It’s probably a good idea to take a first aid kit with you too.
STAY IN THE COUNTRY
There’s no need to travel out of the country each time you go away. Families can find so many things to do back home. You could visit Blackpool with its theme parks and other attractions. You could even go somewhere like Bath, full of pretty sights to see. Explore your own country and you might be surprised at the fun you can have!
