5 Ways to Be Prepared for a Playdate
Hi Everyone! How’s your February going?
Is anyone in the house with the kid(s) feeling like they want to get out and do something?
This is a good time to make a playdate at a location outside of your house or invite your child’s friend over for a playdate!
I am offering up some tips that I’ve gathered from experience and you can use it like a mental checklist before your child’s next playdate.
Having snacks on hand for the kiddos are a key element for planning the perfect playdate and TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks are fun and tasty option!

5 Ways to Be Prepared for a Playdate
#1 – Bring Extra Clothes & Weather Appropriate Gear
Make sure if it’s cold, you have a hat, mittens/gloves, a warm jacket and a scarf.
If it’s sunny make sure to bring sunglasses.
Don’t forget an extra change of clothes just in case your child’s clothes get messy.
Along the same theme, make sure to bring diapers if appropriate or a travel potty if your child is potty training and extra underwear.
Don’t forget those wipes too!
#2 – Bring Snacks
Don’t be the parent who forgets to bring snacks!
Have enough for your child and enough to share.
My daughter loves the fun, bear-shape that these TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks have and the fact that they have a yummy filling 🙂
Having a designated snack time during the playdate is a good way to take a time out between playing sessions.
It’s a good idea to bring a few different things to eat just in case you have a picky eater along.
Don’t forget snacks for yourself and the other parent(s) too!
#3 – Bring Water & Beverages
Make sure you always have fresh water with you for your child (any yourself!).
You can also bring other types of beverages that your child prefers like juice or milk.
#4 – Bring some Toys & Make Sure Pets are Out of the Way
It’s a good idea to bring different 2-3 toys which are easy to transport.
If the playdate is at your home, make sure your dogs/pets are out of the way because you never know how they will react around other children or if other children are used to or allergic to your dogs/pets.
#5 – Use a Tote for Everything
If the playdate is out of the home, have a medium-size tote bag with pockets that you can bring everything you need along with you.
Don’t forget to run down a checklist of what you have before you leave the playdate, so you don’t leave anything behind!
I hope you enjoyed 5 Ways to Be Prepared for a Playdate, now it’s time to schedule your child’s next playdate!
