My Essential Holiday Items

We recently went away on holiday to Tunisia and there were some items that we took with us that I wouldn't have been without so I thought I'd share them with you in the hope that they're helpful for you if you're going on holiday soon.


We decided this time to take a small case as hand luggage as well as our large change bag because we wanted to make sure we had lots of things to keep the kids entertained on the 3 hour flight. This case is the perfect size for using as hand luggage and has wheels and an extending handle so it's easy to move around. I love the polka dot design and will probably be using this case when I go to BritMums Live in a few weeks. The case is part of Sainsburys Spring/Summer luggage collection.


We knew the kids would be spending a lot of time in the pool so for Summer the Huggies Little Swimmers swim pants were a must have, they work so well as a disposable nappy but they don't soak up loads of water when they're in the pool. For when the kids got out of the pool and were getting dry we used the Little Swimmers Hygiene Mat which gave the kids something dry and non-slip to sit or stand on while I got them dry and dressed, we used it loads on holiday and is also useful to take with you if you take your kids swimming. We also took lots of baby wipes with us and we're currently using and loving the Huggies Soft Skin wipes, they're nice and thick and very soft on Summer's skin.


My son Riley suffers a lot with his ears so I was a little worried that they would hurt him on the plane so these Earplanes earplugs were a great help, they come in different sizes depending on your age and they seemed to do the trick as he didn't complain of any pain in his ears at all.


Lastly we needed to make sure that Riley had something to keep him occupied for the plane as we were pretty sure that Summer would sleep so we got him this amazing Dinosaur sticker and activity book from The Works, if you aren't familiar with The Works they have a gigantic range of books for super low prices. Riley loves dinosaurs and he loves stickers so this was perfect and it kept him busy for pretty much the whole flight.

I hope this post has helped to give you some ideas if you're travelling with children, leave me a comment and let me know what your must have item when travelling with kids is.
