ROAD TRIPS

What to bring

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Travelling With Kids 101 -

Stock the car with tis­sue, toi­let pa­per, wet wipes and plas­tic bags (rub­bish, dirty clothes, last-minute vomit re­cep­ta­cle).

Take your kid’s pil­low, blan­ket and soft toy to make them feel more com­fort­able and en­cour­age them to sleep as much as pos­si­ble. They can also use these in wher­ever you’re go­ing to be stay­ing and it’ll help them to set­tle in eas­ily.

Pack a se­lec­tion of healthy snacks and noth­ing that can spill or be wiped on seats. Hav­ing an in­su­lated lunch box is a good idea to keep drinks, fruits and veg­etable sticks cool. Be pre­pared for the af­ter­math if you suc­cumb and of­fer the kids sweets, cook­ies and soft drinks.

Al­ways have an overnight bag on hand with a com­plete change of clothes, tooth­brush and ba­sic first aid kit (plas­ters, an­tibac­te­rial cream, painkillers, mos­quito re­pel­lent).
