My partner and I recently took our 3 kids to the UK for 3 weeks, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but having a sock sorting system that actually worked made my life so much easier!
Traveling with kids can be a lot of work, but it doesn't have to be. By packing the right socks, you can make your trip a little bit easier.
Pack 7-10 pairs of identical socks for each child.
Packing 7-10 pairs of identical socks for each child will help to prevent the hassle of matching socks. It simply become a grab and go situation! This is especially important when traveling with young children, who are still learning how to match socks. Identical socks will also make it easy to find the matching pair when it's time to change socks.
Make sure the socks are easily identifiable.
You can make sure the socks are easily identifiable by using a sock sorting system where the socks have colour-coded dots on the sole for each family member. Dot on a sock socks is such a simple way to do this. Each family member know which socks are theirs (our 9 year old has red dots, our 10 year old has green dots, and our 11 year old has orange dots).
Pack your socks in the reusable washbag.
Packing your socks in the washbag we send your socks in will keep your bag neat and tidy and make socks easy to find. This is especially important if you are packing a small suitcase or backpack. The washbag is also awesome for packing undies in.
By choosing the right socks for travel, you can make your trip a little bit easier. So next time you're packing for a trip, be sure to pack some comfortable, durable, and odor-resistant socks.
