In honor of us being on vacation at the beach this week, I thought I’d post a free beach trip packing list for beach trips with kids!!
This is our 5th beach trip with one or two kids, and by this point, we’ve gotten our packing pretty much down. The first two years,, we went with Brandon’s brother and sister in law, their kids, and B’s parents. Harlyn was our only child. Then by the next time we went, we were parents of two and Brandon’s parents came with us. Last year was the FIRST year we went just as our nuclear family, and we really enjoyed it! We did miss the babysitting, but it was nice to take our first ever family vacay. 🙂
Anyway, because we’ve mostly stayed at condo or house rentals, this packing list does contain a section for that! And while I didn’t add bottles, baby food, or pumping supplies on the “young kid” section, feel free to download, print, and add what YOU need as you see fit!
We’re so thankful that we live in a state that makes beach trips a reality for our family. A 2.5 hour drive is practically nothing, and we know that not everyone can load down their whole family (including two dogs!!) into the van and be at the beach in such a short time.
Please feel free to share this post with anyone who is taking a late summer beach vacation!!
