    Cheap blow up pool for bub - but not for swimming in, more as a play area and to keep toys contained in.

    If anyone is a coffee drinker - take a cheap coffee plunger and boil some water in the morning so you can make coffee

    Take a gas stove/bbq so you can boil said water.... and cook delicious dinners
    - highlights from our trip was grilled salmon, home-made pizzas, rice with chicken curry, hamburgers, fettucine carbonara..... we ate well. Temps were also only 0-12 degrees so the ice in the eskies took ages to melt.

    Take a giant tarp or a pop up marquee thingy to put between tents so you have somewhere to sit/cook out of the rain and the sun

    pack as minimal clothing as possible

    thongs for the shower

    not sure how good a listener your 1yo is but I've seen people take a length of rope and lay it round to give the kids an actual line that they are meant to stay within (or out of if round the fire)

    We have decided to take his playpen to set up, listening is not his most developed skill!

    One thing my dd loves is glow sticks at night. She thinks its such a treat to play with. It also helps keep the boredom at bay.
    She also has her own camp chair.
