My pack rats
I travel with 4 small children in tow and my trips got a whole lot easier when I realized: “Hey, I have 8 little hands that could be helping.”
I pack a change of clothes, snacks and a few favorite toys for each child in their back pack, and like cute little mules, I load them up.
Then each child gets one rolling suitcase. I love the Trunki suitcases because they are like little ride on toys, but any small rolling suitcase will do. Even a 3 year old can tow their own tiny piece of luggage. I pack all of their clothes in each identifiable bag, diapers and other essentials go with me.
By including them in the packing and hauling they feel very grown up and helpful, AND it’s hard to run through the airport when you’re weighed down with luggage, bonus for mom!
Hi Kim-Marie, what a great idea! I can only imagine traveling with 4 children 🙂 But it sure looks like you found the perfect way! Thanks so much for sharing this lovely travel tip.
PS: by the way, your kids look adorable!
