FOR ALL KIDS Bring travel toys, games, books and snacks for the journey Pack beach gear: sunglasses, hats, water shoes and a puddle jumper/life vest Don’t forget their favourite stuffed animal/blankie for sleeping PRO TIP: Bring sand and water toys because they are usually expensive to buy on resort. HELPFUL TO HAVE ON HAND Bring a travel first aid kit with a thermometer Pack kids/baby sunscreen, shampoos and lotions Sealable bags to separate dirty laundry PRO TIP: It’s helpful to plan for simple illness and have medicines on hand like Tylenol, anti-nausea, or cold medicine.

FOR BABIES AND TODDLERS When it comes to travel gear, look for items like strollers and pack-and-plays that are lightweight and easy to carry Formula and baby food are permitted on Canadian airlines. Also, ask your airline how much gear you can check in at no cost Don’t forget swim diapers PRO TIP: Many family-focused resorts have basics like cribs and booster chairs. Many also have bottle sterilizers and pack-and-plays – ask before you go.
