Packing for Summer Travel with Your Children

My family and I recently took a vacation to the beach.  I have three children and packing seemed like a daunting task.  I decided to enlist their help and it worked out wonderfully.  I made a checklist for them that used picture clues and words even though some of my children can read.  It seemed to help them focus what they needed to pack.  Once all of the items were put on their beds, I double checked each and put them in suitcases.  It was efficient and effective and my kids felt part of the process and I felt less stressed.  We all know that us moms, have A LOT to think about and pack otherwise when we travel.  Feel free to use this checklist, tweak it to fit your needs. Click on this link: Kids Beach List Tell us below about your travel tips!  We would love to hear from you!
