Family Travel Planning Made Easier

Our Printable Essential Travel Check List

The Family Backpack Travel Tribe loves great travel bags! We appreciate functional bags that help organize our life at home and travels with our kids. OTG|247 makes just such bags! These beautiful, well-made and versatile bags can be used as a purse, a first-aid kit, a bag for toys and games on a road trip, a snack bag and much, much more!

Each bag has a number associated with its size and intended use. Several have straps that are removable and can be used as a wristlet, over the shoulder or cross body bag after you pull it out of your larger carry-on or diaper bag.

We’ve teamed up with OTG|247 to create a travel checklist for parents when traveling with kids! Print this out for every trip to make sure you don’t forget a thing!

Down the PDF: The Family Backpack | Mom’s Travel Checklist


Instructions for Printing:

  • Insert a 5″ x 7″ cardstock into your printer tray.
  • Chose File > Print
  • Under Page Size & Handling, be sure to choose  Shrink Oversized Pages, then Print
  • Reinsert your paper back into your printer tray, this time using the opposite side to print on. (You may need to check your printer’s directions. Some printers will automatically print double-sided pages of a 2-page PDF.)

These cards are designed to print at 5″ x 7″. If you don’t have that size, go ahead and use a letter-sized sheet of paper or card stock. We recommend you trim before you print the card. If you trim after, it can be difficult to line up both the front and back of the card. You could, however, print the checklist only on an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper. Enjoy!
