Wonderfest packing list


We are so excited to be heading to Wonderfest in Malahide www.wonderfest.ie at the end of next week, with some friends and family too! The kids will have non-stop fun and hopefully the adults will get some chill-out time to enjoy a glass of wine. To see my previous post about Wonderfest click here.

I am a list-lover as you all know, to find my previous list posts just click on the "list" label in the right-hand sidebar. So I'm going to show you my packing list for our first family camping weekend (3 nights) with some details of my pre-festival preparation, in case it helps/inspires/gives you something to laugh at:

Pre-festival prep for mama:
  • tint eyebrows
  • tint eyelashes
  • shave legs and armpits (you think I'm joking here? It's this kind of detail which can make or break a weekend away in a small confined space!)
  • paint nails (fingers and toes)
Mama's beauty packing list:
  • dry shampoo
  • hairbrush
  • toothbrush
  • oil for cleansing and moisturising
  • baby wipes
  • lipstick (to do lips and cheeks)
  • eyeliner
  • bb-cream (foundation and suncream and moisturiser in one)
  • mascara
  • cotton pads and rosewater (cleansing)
  • hairbrush, comb, clips and ties, mirror
Food packing list for the first evening and morning, figure we can run to the local shops/ get food there if suits us:
  • crackers
  • cheese
  • red wine (white/rose is too hopeful, we'd never get it chilled, ditto beer)
  • apples and bananas
  • grapes if we have the room
  • a melon
  • a sharp knife and scissors, corkscrew, forks and spoons
  • veggie sausages
  • barbeque
  • hot dog rolls
  • ketchup
  • water
  • cooler bag
Family toiletries:
  • nappies
  • babywipes
  • toothbrushes
  • hair stuff
  • sun cream
  • plasters
  • arnica cream and tablets (you never know!)
Clothes for mama:
  • underwear, socks
  • tracksuit (sleeping in/slobbing in)
  • three t-shirts
  • a hoody
  • a hat
  • Converse and Fitflop sandals
  • one dress
  • costume?!
  • skinny jeans
  • denim cut-off shorts
Clothes for boys:
  • underwear, socks
  • 3 pairs trousers each
  • shorts
  • shoes (don't laugh, I'd forget them if not written down)
  • long-sleeved t-shirts x2 
  • short sleeved t-shirts x2
  • hoody/sweatshirt
  • jacket
  • sun hats
  • costumes 
Misc:
  • tent
  • sleeping bags
  • air mattress
  • picnic blanket
  • pillows
  • duvet?
  • matches
  • bbq
  • plates, cups, glasses
  • tent bunting or fake flowers
This is the first draft, please let me know if I've forgotten anything. This will be our first camping trip en famille and I'm excited, but praying for sunshine.

Have you booked your tickets yet? Hope to meet loads of you there!
