Family Holiday Essentials | Collaboration 

It’s the time of year when people are jetting off on their summer holidays and seeing everyone getting ready to fly off for some sunshine got me thinking about when we went away last year. Going to Majorca was our first sunshine family holiday and I found that there were a few things that I couldn’t have done without during our trip so I thought I’d share them! So here are my family holiday essentials:
1. A Trunki
We take a trunki with us whenever we go away as it is always a god send! A trunki is basically small suitcase for kids that they can sit on and ride or be pulled on. We love ours so much as it doubles up as a ride on for pickle if he gets tired, can be taken as hand luggage and it’s fab for pickle to have somewhere for all his bit that he will need on the plane.
2. New toys 
Now when I saw this I don’t mean expensive things... I’m talking about £5 worth of stuff from the pound shop! Pack that in the hand luggage and I promise that they will keep the kids entertained. When we went away I got Pickle new stickers, colouring books, little surprise blind bags and he loved them all!

3. Travel Insurance
When we went to Majorca I unfortunately came down with tonsillitis and needed to see a doctor! Luckily I had medical travel insurance as otherwise I would have had to travel over 40 mins to get to a doctor so I could use the European medical card at. Having insurance meant I could head over to the doctors surgery across the road from the hotel safe in the knowledge that I was insured.
4. An iPad full of kids shows 
I can’t stress how essential this is... not just for the plane journey but also for whilst you are away. Kids get so tired on holiday what with the sun and all the running around so sometimes it’s nice for them to be able to take half an hour in the shade watching a bit of telly on the iPad. Give you a bit of a break to do some sunbathing too!

5. First aid kit 
This may seem like a strange one but trust me on it! When we went away Pickle fell over a couple of times where he was running around super excited and it was so much easier to be able to grab my kit out and get a plaster or some calpol without having to ask someone or trying to explain in a different language. It doesn’t take much to out a kit together so I’d definitely recommend packing one for your holiday this year.
So there you have it! My essentials for family travel! Think I’ve missed anything off? Let me know in the comments :)
