Whether you’re looking to enjoy a few days out over the school holidays or escape to the countryside on the weekend, it’s essential to load the car with everything you need.

While these days out are a lot of fun on paper, as a parent, they can cause a few headaches too. You have to be practical, organised and often foresighted to cover all possible scenarios.

That’s why we thought we’d put together a quick list of items designed to help make your life a little easier, and your day out with the kids extra fun.

Mercedes SLS Ride On Car

Start your engines! You won’t need to take your child to expensive theme parks when you gear them up with this luxury cruiser.

This kids car is ideal if your boy or girl is aged around two or three. Moved manually using the snazzy wheel, your child can go as fast as their legs will take them. It even has a cool horn and compartment for storing all the goodies they collect on their day out too.

The best part of all is that this sweet ride is small enough to take away to beach holidays and adventure trips. How’s that for practicality and fun rolled into one?

Mongoose Stance Stunt Scooter

Another essential for park days out with the kids is this Mongoose Stance Stunt Scooter. Take a load off and simply watch your little scooter king or queen explore the park on this sweet ride.

The non-slip deck and rear heel brake also offer that added level of safety as well.

Knee and Elbow Pads set

Thinking of taking your kid on a scooter ride? Then this knee and elbow pad combination is an absolute must.

Safety is key so don’t forget the all important helmet too!

Kids Cycling Shorts

A day out cycling requires a pair of shorts for the occasion. Featuring Qwick-Dri fabric, these cycling shorts will keep your child feeling fresh and cool on their adventures. Meaning you shouldn’t have to put up with any Moaning Myrtles!

Kids Jacket

This kids jacket is perfect for days out involving walks, cycling and wet days at the park. The lightweight fabric is water resistant and has reflective trims and logos for when the sun starts to set.

Don’t forget to send us pictures of your lovely days out with the kids in their new essential items, using the hashtag #readyfor.
