What NOT to pack when travelling with kids
Want to travel lighter? Then trust us: you really do not need to pack these
There's really no need to load yourself up with the following:
Inflatable beach toys, buckets and spades – buy them when you get there
Too many nappies – ditto
Bananas – will go black and squishy on the plane
Toys with small parts – they’ll get lost under the seat and you'll end up in an inelegant scrambling and with inconsolable child in tears
Noisy toys – they'll drive you and fellow passengers to distraction. Bring headphones if possible so games can be enjoyed in virtual silence!
Anything disposable that you can buy or borrow on holiday.
