    Default Camping - what shouldn't I forget to take!

    So we are going camping next week, with our 3 sons, almost 6, almost 4 and 10 months.

    We haven't been camping since DS1 was 11 months old, I am a bit rusty on what I need to take...

    What would you hate to forget?

    How long are you going for?

    Pillows and bedding/beds!!!
    Bug spray of some description
    Torches/battery lights
    First aid kit
    Extra blankets
    Jumpers/warm pjs - I always think camping is much cooler at night
    Playing cards/games

    A few of the top of my head other than your standard camping gear/food etc

    Ohhhh I lOVE camping you are going to have so much fun with those boys exploring everything. Maybe:

    First aid kit
    Mozzie spray and sunscreen, Mat (to wipe feet before going in tent),
    Plus obviously tent, sleeping bags, pillows, air beds, tarp, tent poles, cutlery, cups, kitchen utensils, matches, torches, rope, pegs, toothbrushe/paste, towels, tea towel, wash detergent, water, food, lighter, coins (in case pay showers or bbqs most usually 20c pieces), washing up bucket, chairs, table
    Hmm that's all I can think of right now! Have fun!

    I have just returned from a week of camping or glamping

    Cook a couple of meals beforehand for an easy reheat (Spaghetti bolognese, ravioli and a tomato sauce with cheese etc) and some easy salad things.

    Wine, glasses and champagne

    Coffee machine - I have a nespresso here at home and bought a caffitaly from Woolies and the Gloria Jeans pods (also from Woolies) and enjoyed reasonable coffee twice a day

    Also - Phone charger, iPad charger, DVD charger + extension cords and power board, matches, comfy chairs, good pillows, blow up pool (for keeping toys in), towels and most of all, a sense of humour and lots of tolerance

    Fantastic these suggestions are great thanks!

    We're going for 4 or 5 nights over easter weekend (haven't decided what day we're leaving yet)

    I wont lie I am a little nervous, DS2 has some pretty major sensory issues so we've been working with him for a few weeks to ready him, but 3 kids and camping is scaring me a little LOL

    Mozzie coils! Bug spray for yourself is good, but also mozzie coils to light in your camping area.
