No summer would be complete without at least one visit to a super fun theme park. A day full of rides, sweet treats and sunshine may be right up your alley, but it will only go well if you are fully prepared. Whether you’re hitting the local carnival with your besties or piling the kids into the car and heading to Disneyland, here are 10 theme park essentials you will need to pack to make your day as sane as possible.
1. Smartphone case
We know you don’t normally leave home without your phone, but you may be tempted to store your phone while you hit the rides. Resist this urge and get yourself a trauma-resistant, water-proof smartphone case. You never know when you’ll be accidentally separated from your crew and need to get in touch.
The sun is not always your friend. Protect your eyes and face with a kickin’ pair of sunglasses and practical yet fashionable hat like this cute boater hat. Do not forget these in your theme park packing list!
Decibels will definitely be on the rise, making headaches very possible. Don’t let it take you out of the game and bring a tablet or two. This pill box doubles as a cup to chase down your aspirin, and then it collapses for easy storage.
Bring along a few granola bars or some trail mix to keep your energy up. You’ll already spend an arm and a leg for a full meal so cut costs by supplying your own snacks. Pack them in these reusable snack bags to help the environment.
A sling bag is great to keep your hands free and this one in particular is more comfortable than your average purse. You won’t get tired of feeling your purse’s strap on your shoulder all day, and all this room is a mom’s dream.
