What To Pack For The Park When Traveling With Littles

August 6, 2020.Chelsea Halasz.5 Likes.19 Comments

Guess what!!!? We are planning on going to Silverwood soon! Going to Silverwood theme park has always been one of my favorite past times of my childhood and now I’m so excited to share that with children of my own! Taking a little kid, a toddler, and a new baby to Silverwood is definitely going to take some preparation and planning to insure we have a smooth, successful and enjoyable trip! I’ve prepped a list of my top essential items to pack for Silverwood and Boulder Beach if you’re traveling with littles or a baby!

Stroller

Must have for carrying kids who don’t want to walk any more. I know I’m not carrying them! We like to bring a double stroller so one can tote the baby and the other two kiddos can switch out. If they want to walk, the under carriage or a seat makes a great spot to carry a bag full of your other essentials!

Snacks

If you’re a parent you’ve likely heard the phrase “ I’m hungry” enough to know your kids will say it every time you pass Dip n Dots or the cotton candy stand. Bring some snacks to keep them happy while in line or between meals! Silverwood allows each guest bring in a 12x12x12 soft-sided cooler with small snacks or personal lunch into the park.

Fanny Pack

Don’t laugh! You won’t regret it! Perfect for when you have to leave your stroller to get on a ride you’ll be glad you have a secure place to store some cash, cards and of course your phone! No one likes feeling uneasy leaving their essentials behind!


Going to Boulder Beach?

Puddle Jumpers

Other than swimsuits and sunscreen, we like to bring our puddle jumpers! Our kids are used to them! Just make sure they are US coast guard approved so you can bring them in! Boulder Beach does provide life jackets in all sizes at a first come first serve basis!

Swim Diapers

For those who aren’t potty trained!

Waterproof Phone Pouch

For keeping phone safe and taking your IG worthy pics! Boulder Beach also sells these in the gift shop if you didn’t have a chance to get one on amazon beforehand!

My must have items for a baby? Here are my lifesavers:

Portable Pump

If you’re a pumping mom, doing things like going to Silverwood can seem daunting! Bring a hand pump or an electric double pump and pump wherever you are! I love my Freestyle Flex pump from Medela, it’s super small and fits right in the bottle pocket of my diaper bag! I also bring a light muslin swaddle to use as a blanket and tie around my neck for a cover up for pumping or nursing if I want some privacy!

Bottle Warmer

Bottle feeding? I got you! I love my tiny bottle warmer from Baby’s Brew! It also fits right in the baby bag! Charge it the night before and it should last you the whole day warming bottles so you don’t have to keep asking for cups of hot water everywhere!

Formula Dispenser

Formula feeding? Try a formula dispenser! No one wants to slow their roll riding fun rides to stop measure scoop and probably spill formula powder everywhere! Baby’s Brew also has a formula holder and dispenser! One push of the button is one scoop of formula! So easy!

 

If you’re planning a trip to Silverwood with young ones or a baby these items are sure to make things a smoother trip for you!

    I second the double stroller (3 kids here!), as well as the small cooler of snacks. I also would suggest bringing several empty water bottles (sippy cups, etc) from home for the family as Silverwood has bottle refill places. This saves money, keeps the kids hydrated, and allows you to have the cups on hand that work for the really little ones!
