Being a gran
Equipment for outings
Getting ready for an outing with the grandchildren can feel like preparing for a polar expedition:
"Emergency rations? Check. Crampons? Really?"
In case it’s been a while, here’s our checklist of things it’s helpful to have about you when leave the house:
- Wet wipes
- Drinks, rice cakes, sliced fruit and bread sticks, sandwiches
- Groundsheet or old mac
- Plastic bag for rubbish
- Crayons and paper (for the drawing of dogs, flowers and footballers or playing noughts and crosses)
- Empty jar for ‘finds’
- A rucksack or strap-on bag, so you don’t lose your purse and keys!
- Spare knickers or nappy – sometimes a potty in a plastic bag if you are at that stage!
- Rain or sun gear
Now we're going on that bear hunt....
