5 Things to take on UK family holidays

Taking your child(ren) away  can be very daunting especially if you have never done it before. However, if you prepare well  family holidays  can be one of the most wonderful experiences of your life.  Just think of all the memories you can make together when all you have to worry about is enjoying your break. But what do you take on a UK family holiday? Well another pair of hands would be great but other than that here's a few things that will make life easier on your trip. 

1. Swimming suit and arm bands if needed
If there is a pool where you are staying don't forget to pack both yours and your child's swimming suit/shorts  and arm bands. It will save you searching around the shops once you are there and you can just dive into your holiday.

2.Something to keep them busy on the journey

There might be plenty of activities at the resort but the children will want to be entertained on the journey. Especially if it is a long one so make sure you bring some toys, a DVD player, books or whatever they like to play with. It will make your journey a lot more peaceful. 

3.Plenty of spare clothes

Kids are notorious for getting themselves dirty especially active kids. Make sure you have enough spare clothes for those little mishaps like spilled food, mud or general dirt. 

4. Washing powder

Taking a little washing powder will ensure you can wash out any clothes if you run out or simply want less dirty washing to bring home. 

5. Food and snacks

Whether you are flying,driving or taking a coach or train to another part of the UK you will want to make sure you have plenty of food. Snacks and food on public transport and at airports can be very expensive so be prepared. It is worth noting you can't take drinks through departures at the airport though. So make sure you have some change to buy some.
