Have an outing in your Cubby House – you don’t need to pack a thing!

I like to consider myself pretty relaxed BUT I have learnt over the years that I have a list of stuff I need to take when I take my kids anywhere.  I like to be prepared for all possibilities on outings (after many incidents) so I pack LOTS OF STUFF. We went to a local playground yesterday. For this simple trip I took:

  • A change of clothes for both kids (one is toilet training and the other will find water or mud no matter how well it is hidden).
  • Water – the number of times I have forgotten to take water and the kids seem to be desperate for a drink – water bottles are a must!
  • A snack – even if they’ve just eaten, I guarantee they’ll want something else.
  • Hats. No need to say more here!
  • Sunscreen. No need to say more here either!
  • Band aids – I think our kids agree before the outing which one is going to fall over and need a band aid (usually on their ever-healing knees). They are great at taking turns sharing this!
  • Tissues (for the tears after falling over)
  • A towel – this has been handy for many things … wet slides … wet children … wet me … even a wet dog!
  • Then depending on the season maybe a sweatshirt, rain coat, gumboots or umbrella!
  • I always take wipes too. They are just great for everything!

It’s a mission. It’s crazy! It annoys me I have to prepare for a little trip to the local park. It annoys me I have to unpack most of these things when I get home each time.

This morning we went on an outting … to our cubby house in our back yard. What did I pack? NOTHING! What did I prepare? NOTHING! Our kids have so much fun in their cubby, and I get to actually really relax because there is no preparation involved at all.

Everything I may need is 20 steps away. Ahhhhhh … lovely.

No need to prepare for an outing when you are playing in your own backyard - woo hoo!

Need time and space? So do your kids!


Ah, space. I love it. I can’t get enough of it. I’m an introvert, so people who know me understand just how important my space is to me. Especially the neighbours, who regularly hear my hollers of “I JUST NEED SOME SPACE!!!!!!!” when my daughter has perched herself on my
