Your sunglasses

Hats or caps for all

Highlighters - excellent for word search games

White and Coloured Paper

Zip lock bags (for collecting seashells or bagging left-over snacks)

A set (or two) of clean clothes. (depending on their age)

Crayons and colouring books

Maps and/or GPS

Mobile phone or digital camera + extra memory cards for the loads of photos you're going to take!

If you lose a child in a crowded area you will have a photo to show if you keep one in your wallet.

Take extra, certified copies of birth certificates, ID's and Passports as well as travel reservations and airline tickets and keep in an alternative place.

Have these on a road trip and feel like a hero!

Frisbee, basketball or rugby ball - Get a quick work-out for all when making a stop outside town.

Snacks - Add to your usual array of snacks: Any kind of dry salted crackers and hard candy - trip savers!
