Essentials to Pack When Heading Somewhere Hot With Children

Traveling to very hot locations is lovely but of course, there are things you need to bring with you to be best prepared to deal with the heat. This is even more crucial with children as they are more susceptible to feeling the negative effects of the heat and you’ll want to make sure their health and safety are the priority. Here are some ideas for essentials to bring with you on your warm trip. 

High SPF Factor Suncream

Many people opt for a lower SPF factor in their suncream to help them tan, but with children of course you just want to be sure they are as well-protected as possible. Aim for SPF 50 and look for one that protects from UVA and UVB rays. 

Insect Repellent

Hot areas often go hand in hand with an abundance of nasty insects. Whether these actually bite or sting you or just buzz in your face, it can be incredibly frustrating. To keep your little ones calm, insect repellent is always a good idea. 

Electric Fan

These little handheld devices are a dream come true when you’re feeling the extreme heat. When nothing seems to be making a difference to the sweltering warmth your kids are feeling then offering them some relief with a fan will help them feel less overcome and overwhelmed.
