Taking your children with you for traveling across the globe is a fun and educational activity. But when it comes to buying and packing your kid’s suitcases, the activity can be rather tedious. Here are some tips to help you select the perfect luggage bag and how to pack it, so that you do not face the same issues in future.
Buying the Perfect Suitcase:
When buying the perfect kid’s suitcase, just keep in mind your child’s characteristics and it will make things a whole lot easier. Buy a suitcase that is lightweight, with wheels and an adjustable handle which will make it easier for your little one to handle it. Try choosing one with a hard shell; it will make it long lasting and easier to clean. It is a good idea to get your child involved in the purchasing process and buy a suitcase with his favorite cartoon characters on it.
Packing the Suitcase:
No need to cringe at the thought of this, packing a kid’s suitcase is not as complicated as it sounds. Just make sure you are organized and keep all the same kind of things together. Start with the major, bulkier things from the bottom and work your way up. The first things to go in would obviously have to be clothes, neatly folded and arranged so that your child would have no problem in getting them out. Then add the essentials such as toothpaste, toothbrush and other such cleaning tools. To avoid leakage or spills, put the liquids and pastes such as toothpaste and mouth wash into travel sized bottles and clinch them tightly (make sure your child is able to open the bottles). Lastly, but very importantly, add in your child’s favorite entertainment items such as stuff toys, portable games etc., but do not over load the suitcase, that will make it too heavy to carry.
Try to involve youngsters in buying and packing their own suitcases to teach them responsibility and organization. The process is more enjoyable than you think.
