Family Car Day-to-Day Summer List

What do you carry in your car day-to-day with kids? It really depends on how big your car is and how much room you might have…and how organized you are. I have been adding and subtracting from my van each year and seasonally. I’d love to hear your ideas of helpful car-hints.  I stay organized for a whopping 5 minutes each season when I re-organize the car.

Year Round:

  • Kleenex
  • Small trash can (as if this matters…)
  • Hand wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Band-aides
  • Neosporin
  • Sunscreen
  • Kids Benadryl
  • First Aid Kit (but, this is so skimpy…a store-bought little box)

For the Summer I add some things:

  • Apis (Homeopathic Remedy for Bee Stings)
  • Water
  • Swim Bag: Towels, Suits, goggles, sunscreen, flip-flops
  • Folder with plain paper, markers & pencils
  • Tennis Bag: tennis requests, tennis balls
  • Golf Bags: clubs, gloves, sunscreen, water (golf stuff is so huge, it only comes in once a week)
  • Soccer Ball
  • Park stuff: frisbee, football
  • Leash, dog water bowl

When we travel in the car:

  • Snacks
  • Lap desks
  • Cards & travel games
  • More water

What are some helpful or cool things you like having in your car?

Happy Almost Summer 🙂
