A toddler mom doesnt really know what summer vacations mean. Her toddler is yet to start schooling and she attended school really long back. But when it comes to summer,there has to loads of outings, travels, fun, chilling, family and play time.
But when you have a toddler with you, any outing even if ir is a day outing requires planning to make the most of it.
I am hereby writing a few things to plan a day outing
1. Chose your destination wisely
While chosing your destination, may that be a resort or waterpark or any adventure park, make sure you enquire if they have kids play area or kids friendly toys, the food they provide for kids and other facilities.
We went for day outing in a resort which had a play area for kids, play area for adults, swimming pool with music, various sports like archery, gun shooting, etc.
2. Plan your activities before leaving
If you are planning for swimming pool, make sure you carry the baby costume, sunscream, an extra pair of clothes, towels, afterbath lotion, etc. For the baby and yourself too. There are various types of baby rings available. You can carry your own or even the resorts may provide.
Our main focus was gala time with family and we decided to go for play area in the afternoon and in the pool by around 5pm or so.
3. Carry meals for your toddler
You should carry 3-4 items for your toddler for entire day. A cut fruit which has to be consumed soon like watermelon, muskmelon, apple,etc. Fruits like banana, grapes can be taken along easily and will last for the day. The other can be a sandwitch which can last a few hours. You can also carry cerelac or similar for on the go meal.
4. Keep the clothing simple
Let your toddler be in cool and comfortable clothes. The clothes should be breezy and preferably cotton. Carry a sun hat and eye wear for your toddler.
5. Let your toddler explore themselves and have all the fun
