What goes inside the Children’s Bags?

Here is everything we’re packing in the children’s bags (Tortuga Daypack). It’s probably a lot more than you’d think. The compression cubes from Eagle Creek are amazing and I owe this all to them. Their hygiene things will be packed in my backpack. (To see everything that I’m bringing, click here.)

How do I pack the Children’s Bags?

First, I set aside their departure outfits and put the iPads in the designated sleeves inside their backpacks. Then, I put all the clothes inside the compression cubes. I put the toys in the small waterproof bags. At this point, they all looked like this:

Putting everything in the backpacks was the easiest part! The compression cubes fit in there perfectly with some spare space for shoes, etc. On the outside pockets, I put their blankets, toys, and sandals. The end result looked like this:
