I’m looking forward to the festival season and after 3 years of festival going with toddlers and babies, I feel like I’ve got it all a bit more organised now.  Here are the things I will not be leaving home without 🙂

Pull-Along Trailer


These cute trailers are ideal for carting about lots of heavy luggage or, better yet, your children! I’ve seen these at all the festivals I’ve been to this year and they are such a fab idea! Means that you can keep on enjoying the festival’s delights even if your little ones need an afternoon snooze. Buy it here.

Extra Large Waterproof Picnic Blanket

This extra large picnic blanket is a must for all festivals, picnics, beach trips… and any outdoor excursion especially if you’ve got a large family! It’s waterproof, washable and large enough for the whole family plus all food and trimmings. Buy it here.

Child Safety Wristband


Such a genius idea! Stick your mobile number to your child with these wristbands and have a little bit extra peace of mind knowing that if your child does become lost at a festival the stewards will know who to call.  Buy it here.

Waterproof All-In-Ones

These waterproof all-in-ones are the best ones I’ve ever found and are perfect for keeping your little one dry all festival long. They come in a range of super cute designs and pack away so small you can pop them in your handbag so you’re always prepared. Buy it here.

Paint Your Own Funky Wellies


Every festivaler needs a pair of wellies, no matter how big or little they are! So why not include an awesome craft afternoon in with your festival preparations and let your little one paint and decorate their own welly boots! Buy it here.

Sealable & Stackable Plastic Boxes


Simple but genius! Sealable plastic boxes are super handy for packing all your stuff in plus they will keep your stuff safe from the rain and mud whilst you’re there. Perfect for food, drinks, clothing, shoes… and well anything and everything you need to bring! At the end of the festival remember to put all your muddy clothes and shoes into one of these to stop your car from getting dirty. Buy it here.

Battery Powered Fairy Lights


These are perfect for decorating your pull along trailer or adding a bit of festival magic to your tent. You’ll be grateful for a bit of overhead lighting if you need to find something at night – so much better than relying on your phone’s torch! Buy it here.

Fairy Princess Face Paints


Even adults love getting their face painted and decorated for festivals and if you’re going with kids then its a must! Check out these really cute fairy princess face paints, perfect for turning any little girl into a glittery festival fairy! Buy it here.
