Have you ever found yourself having a great time out with your family, looked at the clock and had to leave early because you don't have any pyjama's for the kids or a change of clothes if they are wet or dirty?

I have learnt from experience, that if I pre-pack an 'emergency clothing bag' and leave it in the car, we're prepared whenever we're on the go. If we're at someone's house and it's getting late, I can simply bathe the kids and get them into their pyjama's - so that when they fall asleep in the car, which they will inevitably do, and we can simply transfer them straight to bed when we get home. Or, if we are out and it's heating up, we've got spare clothes should the kids want to indulge in some water play.

Items to pack

Everyone's needs will be different, but below is a list of the items I ensure are packed for each child in my bag at all times:

A pair of pyjama's. At the moment, as the temperature at night is so temperamental due to the change in weather, I actually have a summer pair and a winter pair, because you never know which one you will need on any given day.
A spare pair of underpants.
A singlet
A jumper
A spare pair of clothes
Socks
A sleep suit for my 8 month old
A couple of spare nappies
A couple of spare bibs
Toothbrush & tooth paste
Bath wash and shampoo
In summer, I also pack a swim nappy, a pair of swimmers and a couple of thin towels too - that way your kids will never miss out on a water play opportunity!

The bag simply stays in the car until it is needed and then once we get home, I restock it and pop in back in the car for the next time we are out and about.

I find this removes a lot of stress from family outings and also cuts down on the time it takes us to leave the house - because we know that we have everything we will need, already packed.

Do you have any tips for getting out the door quicker or being prepared for anything on the go?

Great tip! I've got a similar bag in our car now after being caught out a few times. I've found it's also good in case of accidents too, like when my 3 year old accidentally tipped the contents of his drinks bottle over himself. It has saved many a trip home for a change of outfit.
