Hazel is almost 4 so before Olive came along, we were well and truly done with a nappy bag, however I was so done with having all her bits and pieces floating through my handbag. So, we created a go bag for her.
We keep this bag stocked and ready to go all the time, it hangs on a hook at our front door so we just need to grab it and go (hence the name 😉).
Inside we have everything to keep Hazel entertained for a day out of the house, whether that be a trip to the park, sitting in a waiting room or going out for dinner.
- Notebook and Colouring Book
- Pencil Case
- A small Lego kit (in the little pink container)
- A couple of small toys
- Drink Bottle
- Snacks (we use that Decor container and fill it before we leave)
The backpack is from Cotton On and is the perfect size to fit everything but is small enough for Hazel to carry.
Having this bag ready to go all the time has been a lifesaver so many times, especially when I had doctors appointments before having Olive and while in hospital. If you have a new bub on the way I would highly recommend putting a bag together for your older kids.
Do you have a go bag for your kids? Are you done with having random toys and kids stuff floating around in your handbag as well?
