Camping with Your Toddler Checklist
Containers Stash some extra old plastic yogurt cups, egg cartons, etc., when packing your child’s play things. She can use these to collect small objects for inspection at the campsite. But remember: Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photos.
Comfort toysKeep these hidden away in your tent. Your child will enjoy having something cozy and special from home when it comes time to go to bed at night. Animal and insect noises and the unfamiliarity of the woods can be frightening for little ones. A favorite blanket or stuffed animal can help lull your tot peacefully to sleep.
Plastic bags (assorted sizes) These will come in handy for everything. From keeping dirty diapers from stinking up your campsite, for toting snacks while exploring, or keeping extra clothes dry should you be confronted with a sudden rainstorm.
A tarp and an extra old blanketBoth of these come in handy for creating a soft and safe play area, for warmth on a cold night, or to spread on your extra tarp for good napping.
An extra roll
of toilet paperIt’s always good to have an extra roll … just in case you need it.
