Whether you’re looking to make the most of sunny days or escape to the countryside on the weekend, it’s essential to load the car with everything you need.

While these days out are a lot of fun on paper, as a parent, they can cause a few headaches too. You have to be practical, organised and often foresighted to cover all possible scenarios.

That’s why we thought we’d put together a quick list of items designed to help make your life a little easier, and your day out with the kids extra fun.

Mercedes SLS Ride On Car

Mercedes SLS Kids Car

Start your engines! You won’t need to take your child to expensive theme parks when you gear them up with this luxury cruiser.

This kids car is ideal if your boy or girl is aged around two or three. Moved manually using the snazzy wheel, your child can go as fast as their legs will take them. It even has a cool horn and compartment for storing all the goodies they collect on their day out too.

The best part of all is that this sweet ride is small enough to take away to beach holidays and adventure trips. How’s that for practicality and fun rolled into one?

Mongoose Stance Stunt Scooter

Mongoose Stance Kids Scooter

Another essential for park days out with the kids is this Mongoose Stance Stunt Scooter. Take a load off and simply watch your little scooter king or queen explore the park on this sweet ride.

The non-slip deck and rear heel brake also offer that added level of safety as well.

Black Helmet and Pads Backpack

Halfords Kids Helmet Pads and Backpack

Thinking of taking your kid on a bike ride? Then this Halfords helmet, pads and backpack combination is an absolute must.

For just £5, you can kit your little biker out with a skater style helmet as well as knee and elbow pads. Then once you’re finished exploring, you can store them in the handy rucksack. Safe, practical and stylish.

This bundle is also perfect for kids who own scooters too.

Ridge Kids Cycling Shorts – Black

Ridge Kids Cycling Shorts Halfords

A day out cycling requires a pair of shorts for the occasion. Featuring Qwick-Dri fabric, these cycling shorts will keep your child feeling fresh and cool on their adventures. Meaning you shouldn’t have to put up with any Moaning Myrtles!

Ridge Kids Jacket Halfords

This kids jacket is perfect for days out involving walks, cycling and wet days at the park. The lightweight fabric is water resistant and has reflective trims and logos for when the sun starts to set.
