Here at ‘The Parent Pack’ we are partial to a parent hack or two! Anything to make our life easier is ok by us.

As the good weather and holiday season approaches with speed we thought we’d share a few hacks for your days out and weekends away with the kids.

The Beach
These two hacks are perfect for your visits to the beach!

1. How about taking a fitted sheet to the beach and creating a comfortable sand-free zone for the picnic?

4.A must have for family day trips. These magnetic parking pals are great for families with more than one child, when you’re trying to juggle prams, babies and bags! Your child knows they have to put their hand on it until you tell them otherwise. You can also support the wonderful charity, Blue for Jackson when you buy one. Have a look:

5.No bath at your resort? Stick a paddling pool in the shower and pop the kids in! Winning.
