My kids are at the age that they are responsible for packing their own bags on our trips.  They always ask for a packing list so they can check things off as they go. I thought I would share this with you today.  I included my master packing list, but also included a blank list so you can create your own (or that you can print out on the other side of the page).

Also in this free Summer Planning Packet are some pages for planning trips and other summer-time fun.  You’ll find a “Things To Do” list (both with my “to-dos” or blank). An “Instructions for the Pet Sitter” page, as well as some summer planning pages. A couple of different pages for planning different types of summer activities, a summer schedule page and a few others.
