Items to Pack for a Zoo Trip

A trip to the local zoo with your children can be fun and educational. If you plan to spend the whole day at the zoo, it’s best to pack just a few items, so you don’t have too much to carry. Here are three items to take along with you on your trip.

A Fanny Pack

A fanny pack is incredibly useful on a trip to the zoo. It can be a secure place for your money, tickets, phone, medicines and other small items. When you put these items in a fanny pack, they’re right there at your side when you need them. Plus, you don’t have to use either arm to carry a bag or purse as you visit all the exhibits.

An Umbrella

Another item to take along with you is a folding umbrella. Be sure to take it even if it’s not supposed to rain. A folding umbrella can come in handy if you want to sit on a bench and get a break from the sun. Holding an umbrella over your head for even a few minutes can offer relief on a hot, humid day.

A Cooler of Refreshments

Sometimes it’s fun to get refreshments at concession stands. They can be pricey, however. So, if you want to save a little money, take a small cooler with you. A small cooler can support a supply of ice along with a few bottles of water, snack crackers, bags of cut veggies and more. Even if you decide to purchase food during your trip, taking along snacks can still save on your budget. Plus, you’ll manage to sneak in some healthy snacks for the kids.

Making a list of items for your trip can help you stay organized. A list will also help you avoid forgetting anything as you leave home to enjoy an exciting day of learning!
