Whether you’re going to grandmas house, a nearby staycation, or a family trip to Disney World, packing for spring break with kids is no small task. Of course you want to be amply prepared, but that can easily turn into 5 bags a piece – Trust me, know that experience all too well!
For our next Spring Break vacation, I was able to find just about all of our packing essentials at my nearest Osh Kosh B’Gosh store. I grew up wearing and loving Osh Kosh clothes and I love that it’s still the same fun and authentic All American styled clothes, only refreshed with optimistic colors, hand-drawn graphics and still just as timeless as ever. They’re easy, relatable clothes that let kids just have fun being kids. I went crazy shopping for my girls, but of course, Osh Kosh B’Gosh clothes are available for boys and girls sizes 0-12.
No matter where you are spending your spring break with kids, the packing essentials you’ll need will most likely fall into one of these 3 categories:
Especially if your Spring Break kicks off with the Easter holiday, you’ll want to be prepared for all of those picture perfect moments to capture great memories of your Spring Break vacation. In our case, we’ll likely be attending a few Easter parties and egg hunts, so I wanted to find some pretty, yet comfortable and age-appropriate dresses for my girls. I brought them with me shopping and while they wanted to buy up the whole store, these were to 2 dresses they decided on. I just love the bright and fun floral designs and the easy lightweight flow of these dresses…and my girls did too!
Don’t worry, girls aren’t the only ones who get these picture perfect looks from Osh Kosh. If you have boys, they can be handsome as ever in bow ties, suspenders and blazers.
Fun in the sun
Of course! This is what Spring Break is all about – time at the park, beach, or some other sunny destination. You’ll want to make sure you have enough shorts, tees, swimsuits, sandals, sunscreen, etc. (full packing list below). I scored a bunch of easy mix and match shorts and tops at my local Osh Kosh store at ridiculously affordable prices. I loved the reflective shirts and they really come in handy if you’re planning a trip to an amusement park where you’re likely to be out past dark. The roll-cuff shorts were also super durable and stylish.
Osh Kosh has also got you covered with a big selection of UPF 50+ suits, also in the bold prints and tons of cool shades!
Since Spring Break weather can be a little unpredictable, longer sleeves, light sweaters and pants are a must. We found a big selection of traditional blue jeans, but instead, got a little more fun with it. The bold and bright colored jeans and were such a refreshing addition to the mix and the graphic 3 quarter-sleeved shirts were perfect. I paired my oldest’s outfit with a super soft tulle skirt she loved to twirl around and about in (pictured at top of page).
You can tell by the pictures, my girls had a great time with the hats as well. These can be worn as sun blockers during the day, or also as fun accessories as the weather starts to cool.
So, from your Easter gear, to beach wear, to just your every day cool, Osh Kosh has got you covered from head to toe (yes, did I mention their sandal collection?).
