Summer Adventure Checklist

Have you ever planned the perfect day with the family only to arrive at your destination and you’ve forgotten sunscreen or a swimsuit or *shudder* sun hat? Don’t let the mom brain get you down. We’ve got the kid essentials checklist for any summer adventure you’ve got planned!

The Summer Basics

Let’s start easy. If you’re a parent that normally has everything together, you’re probably going to forget at least one thing that’s important on a trip. We’ve all been there. 4 hours into a road trip and it clicks, “Oh my gosh, my charger!” or a big old facepalm, “The sunglasses are on the table!” It’s cool. Hopefully, this short and sweet list can help you remember everything on your list!


Things you’ll probably always need:

If The Shoe Fits 

If you’re taking the kids to one of our beautiful provincial parks or just up the street for a picnic, make sure they’re ready to run with a good pair of shoes. A sweet pair of sneakers for your energizer bunny, sandals to keep the toes free to wiggle, or durable water shoes to keep the fun going (without complaints about wet socks or sharp rocks). Take a hike or hit the lake with comfy shoes for girls and boys. (Mom's and Dad's too!)


Carry Everything in Style

Let the kids carry their favourite things in a backpack or bag that suits their personality! Screaming sequins or trendy patterns, there’s a bag for everyone! Made with high-quality materials and durable enough to handle whatever your kids throw into it. Markers, snacks, extra change of clothes… Make sure you’re prepared to handle anything.
