Packing: Kids daypacks

What are they actually carrying in there?!

Child-size packing is even more of a fine art! 
On reflection, longterm travel packing is not that different to packing for a week-long holiday, BUT; you do have to carry it for longer…

The boys carry ‘limpets’ [they can attach to our big packs if need be]. It holds all their special treasures and they carry their own bag on travel-days.
