Zoo Checklist for your Trip to the Zoo

As a parent, I’ve learned the hard way that it is essential to make sure you’ve packed everything you and your children need for your trip to the zoo. So, I’ve prepared a basic list list of the most common items you will need for your zoo trip. For your convenience, I’ve also made a Printable Zoo Checklist. Check each item off when it is packed or write N/A. There is space at the end for special items for your family. I hope you and your family have a great trip!

*Lastly, I only recommend natural sunscreens and bug spray. Too many of the conventional brands contain poisons which are not good for your family or your habitat/planet.
