"How 2 Pack Your
Carry-on Bag"

Have you ever gotten on the airplane only to discover that you don't have something that you could really use at that moment? Maybe you packed your book in your checked bag or just plain left it at home.


Well we've done it too, but not anymore. In this video we'll show you how to get all of the things you don't want to forget into  one, organized carry-on bag.


Let us know if you like our newest video and leave a comment on our YouTube channel!  


Travel Quote 



"And that's the wonderful thing about family travel: it provides you with experiences that will remain locked forever in the scar tissue of your mind."  


~(Dave Barry)



Featured Recipe

"Chariss' Zucchini Bread"

You may be thinking...zucchini bread, how weird?! Trust us; many people have asked for this recipe and it's worth giving a try.  


This bread comes straight from Schae's mom's kitchen and is soft, moist, and flavorful. Bring individually wrapped slices with you on your next voyage or store slices in the freezer for a quick treat anytime.

Get the Kids Psyched for Your Next Trip

Let the kids get involved in the planning of and preparation for your next travels. It'll help you out and they'll feel like they have a hand in creating a piece of the family fun!  

  • Planning - Ask them where they'd like to go or tell them where you are going and ask them what they like to do there. Provide them a list with acceptable options from which they can choose.  


  • Paint a Picture - Once you have chosen your destination, print a map of the land for them. Encourage your kids to research the area and to report back on any cool findings.      
  • Print Packing List - One week before your trip, print a packing list for each kid. Detail how many of each item they need to pack (ie. 4 shorts, 6 socks). Let them take their time packing and crossing things off the list. You can download and customize our FREE Pre-Travel Checklist.                   

 6 Family Travel Essentials    


Whether you are traveling by road, sea or air, here are a few things you won't want to leave home without.  

  1. One backpack per person. Make each person responsible for their own carry-on bag.

  3. Have the kids fill their bag with activities they choose like books, video games, crossword puzzles, coloring books, crayons/pens/pencils, or a tape player with audio books. 

  5. It's always a good idea to have plenty of snacks on hand. Let your kids fill plastic baggies with bite-sized finger foods like fruit and crackers to keep in their bag. 

  7. Families accumulate plenty of trash. Bring a disposable bag on the airplane or get one for your car like this one.   

  9. Spills happen. Be ready with a travel-size pack of wet napkins or a bunch of paper towels.    
  10. Check helpful websites like the Family Vacation Survival Guide and Disney's Family Fun for tons more travel tips.
