Vacations never go according to plan but one thing you probably can count on is someone getting an ouchie. New adventures and sandy beaches beg to be explored by little hands and Tupperware containers make the perfect gathering spot in your kids luggage for all your band-aids, antibacterial cream, bug bite spray and tweezers for those finicky splinters that sometimes find their way from the boat dock to little piggy toes.

Tangoing with Toys No matter how much you say “only one toy allowed” everyone knows you will inevitably bring at least seven more than one by the time it’s over… or you crack under the pressure of “why, God, why can’t we take more toys!” To fit in the necessities like Legos, lovies and racer cars into your kids luggage – roll your clothes into tube shapes instead of folding. You will be able to fit in a whopping 50% more this way. Best of all, everything will come out wrinkle free and ready to play!

Elephants Never Forget But people sure do! That’s especially true if it’s a necessity. Create a check list and tape it inside your luggage. Not only will this help you make sure you have everything when you pack it will also ensure that you have everything you brought packed back into your kids luggage before you leave the hotel. Nothing is worse than a favorite lovie being on permanent vacation in the Hamptons! Packing your kids luggage doesn’t have to require a visit to a padded cell. With a little creativity and a lot of imagination you and your kiddos can enjoy packing… or at least keep from losing your mind in the process.
