Packing List for Vacation with Children

I was sad that I didn't pack sufficiently for the Danish vacation. (The typical Danish family vacation is more like a retreat in a summer house, very relaxing, unlike the vacation back home to Singapore, where I will try to allocate slots for J to attend enrichment class or kindergarten as part of the "cultural exchange programme for preschoolers", so I had forgotten to pack many things).

I forgot to bring along board games for the children to play together. I also forgot to bring along CDs to entertain J for the long drives in the car during sight-seeing trips. Fortunately, he took it very well, and the car trips went fine. (No, I didn't have to resort to videos or iPad in the car yet and I am very thankful for that).

The following would be a complete list of what I should remember next time:

1. Workbooks
2. 2-3 story books
3. Case case with pencil, eraser and sharpener
4. Mini color pencils
5. Swimming costume and safety float
6. 1-2 board games
7. CDs with Chinese children songs, English children songs and Christian children songs, English phonics songs and Chinese story-telling.
8. Sunglasses
9. Raincoat
10. Umbrella

The list is only for myself to remember, it is not a recommendation to others.

  1. Hello Elaine,
    I stumbled across your blog from Google and must say, have totally fallen in love with it. I too have a little boy who is almost 3 yrs old and I find your site immensely useful, esp the Montessori activities. You really are an inspiration to me :) Please keep up the good work.
