You can just call the kids and I The Great Traveling Circus.  We’ve had a trip a month for this entire year.  Not that I’m complaining, I love traveling with my babies.  I’ve learned the importance of consolidating, and anything that keeps my hands free is a major plus.  Which is why I’ve teamed up with Baggalini to show you exactly what you need in your backpack when on a day out with kids.

Our last couple of trips have had a lot of outdoor time.  So here’s what I pack to make sure you’re set your day out with kids: 

  • At least 3 diapers and a pack of wipes 
  • 2 changes of clothes, one for each kid 
  • Hand sanitizer 
  • Snacks- I normally do a protein bar for me, 2 packs of gummies, 2 bars, and 2 apples or other fruit for the kids. 
  • Water bottle big enough for the whole family 
  • Sunscreen- ALWAYS important no matter the weather. 
  • Small trash bag 
  • A blanket 
  • Small foldable umbrella

This is a fool-proof list to get you through almost ANY da out with kidsy.  I absolutely love this Baggalini backpack from Zappos as it carried all of this for me and allowed me the use of both arms.  I love a great backpack!  The particular backpack I got is water resistant and weather proof.  With kids, there’s nothing better. 

I, of course, love ordering through Zappos.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- ordering through Zappos makes my life so easy.  They have SO many options and I receive my order in two days.  If for some reason it’s not what I wanted, it is so easy to do returns with them!!

    Such great tips for parents with young ones! Managing kids when out and about can be tough! I can’t wait to pass this on to some friends of mine!

    Great list! I also kept a change of shirt for me in the diaper bag or vehicle as well. There were enough times that I was the one on the receiving end of some of the kid’s messes, so it came in handy!

    This is a good list. I personally cannot leave the house without wipes. I have a preschooler and a toddler so you can see why, haha. Also, I have to be better putting sunscreen on them, no matter the weather. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

    This list reminds me of all the times I took my daughter to disneyland when she was young. Of course these things were the stuff her mother focused on more. I was more focused on the food and making sure we had lunches that everyone could eat prepared.
