Spring Break Travel and Packing Tips for Families

by Tracy Kunzler

From the editor: Our relaxation expert presents a series of tips for the upcoming spring break. Do you have vacation plans? Leave a comment – we’d love to know where you’re going!

Spring Break Packing and Travel Tips

Spring break marks the first time many of us will visit pools and beaches this year as we head south for a much-needed “latitude adjustment” after the cold winter months. The thing I hate about going on spring break is wondering what to pack. (That and having to come back home!) Following is help with the “what to pack” thing. (As far as the “coming back home” thing, maybe you can Google “faking a kidnapping?” You’re on your own there!) The really great thing is, since spring break often occurs over the Easter holiday, many of these things can double as Easter gifts kids can use on your trip! Following, a checklist of things that will take up minimum room in your suitcase and provide maximum fun on your trip near the water!

What to Pack for Fun in the Water on Vacation

by Tracy Kunzler

From the editor: What do you pack so the kids have fun in the water on you next vacation? Be it for spring break or your annual summer holiday, our relaxation blogger Tracy Kunzler has suggestions for all ages.

For Baby

Baby Spring Float Sun Canopy

Why not introduce the smallest family members to the water in a fun way! A baby float with an adjustable canopy helps keep baby from getting sunburned, buy one with a play area for toys and splashing like the Baby Spring Float. Don’t forget to choose a float that folds up quickly and easily for storage, so it takes up very little space in your suitcase!

For Toddlers and Preschoolers

For little kids, around 2-4 years old, who are ready to explore the water with a little more confidence a swim vest or swim sweater will help them get started! The best flotation vests keep kids stable and their faces a comfortable distance from the water, some even offer sun sleeves for add extra sun protection. The SwimWays Swim Sweater has nothing between the legs to pinch and bind or get in the way of potty-training. Deflated, it takes up very little room in your suitcase. Inflated, it can help protect treasured souvenirs in your suitcase on the trip back home!

For Older Kids

Power Swimr

The Power Swimr System, dubbed “training wheels for the pool,” gives kids freedom of movement while keeping them in proper swimming position as they gain the skills and confidence needed to swim unaided. When choosing a swim training vest for your child, look for one that offers internal flotation pads you can remove one at a time as your child progresses at his or her pace. The Power Swimr has 9 flotation pads that can be removed one at a time as your child gains confidence in the water.
