Planning for a family holiday can be very stressful!
Making sure you have everything that your partner and children might need for your time away can feel like an everlasting battle. Trying to work out how many outfits to take when you have children who like to get messy can feel like trying to figure it an old school maths equation! But with a few tips on organising for a family holiday, your life can be 100 times easier!
Tip 1) LISTS – I am list person. I write lists for everything so when it comes to organising for a holiday, writing lists is definitely a must. Lists can be made for clothes to essentials for your children to what needs booking in the run up to the holiday.
Tip 2) PLAN – Get clued up on where you are going to give yourself a good idea of what to pack. Also checking the weather forecast before hand to help you pack suitable clothes. For example ; if it is going to rain and going to be muddy, it’s best if you pack wellies.
Tip 3) PREPARE – If you are travelling abroad check to see if you need to have things such as a visa or Medical travel insurance . If you are travelling within the UK you don’t have to think about this but still look in to holiday insurance so your holiday is protected if something was to happen.
Tips 4) CHARGE – If your little ones have a tablet or something similar, make sure it is charged up. You can also buy small power banks so you have a back up battery. This is so handy if you will be travelling for a long period of time.
Tip 5) SAVE – This tip is great if you are staying in the UK at a holiday park. Save all your 2p coins! Children love 2p machines so having some ready means you don’t have moaning children!
Tip 6) TIME – Start getting organised well in advance. Organisation is key! Figuring out what you need and laying everything out before packing away in a suitcase will give you a clearer picture if the items you might have missed
Tip 7) CAPTURE – Take lots of family photos, as well as having fun in the moment. Being on a family holiday is the perfect moment to capture some beautiful family photos

I will be coming back to this list when we take our first holiday as a family! I’m so nervous to even go somewhere in the country with Theodore! Taking a baby on holiday does not seem fun to me!

This was super helpful! Love the tip about lists, I love a good list! Amy X
I’m a list person too and I bet I’dadd a million and one other lists about lists before I took my family away! We save our two pences because we like to visit the seaside every now and then and I’m a nightmare for the 2p machines! HAHA.
