Packing for Day Trips with Kids 2


When you are heading out for the day with your baby or toddle there is such much paraphernalia to pack.  So what essentials do you really need, and what do you need when they grow up and become pre-schoolers and big kids.

Packing for day trips varies a little from babies and toddlers to pre-schoolers and children.  So I have broken it into 2 lists.
