Things to take on a School Excursion

I’m off on an all day school excursion today. Every time I remember I bellow “NNNNooooooooo”.  I really don’t like school excursions. I never learn a thing!

The only upside, I get to hang with one of the coolest kids I know for a few hours and have some one-on-one time. I’ll just have to ignore the other 20 kids hanging off me. For some reasons kids love me, there is no good reason for it. I think they love the indifference that wafts off me.

Any woo, here the things to take on a School Excursion…

Things to take on a School Excursion – The outfit

Please note, you need to have to hands free to grab wayward children. If you can find a cute bum bag, that will work too but they are nearly impossible to find.

Please note there is no Vodka. This isn’t appropriate for this occasion as much as you might want it. I also packed mints, but forgot to include them in the photo.

What have I forgotten?

  1. Think you summed up pretty well. I always forget to take sunglasses and always regret it later when my eyeballs are burning. And I have a habit of forgetting my hat too… not a good example as the teacher :/

  2. I like excursions, so long as I’m not the teacher or parent volunteer – i.e. not involved beyond paying money and waving goodbye.

    You forgot panadol. I don’t think I’ve been on an excursion where at least one teacher didn’t reach for the headache pills!

    I used to hate them I hope you get your favourite child to hang with in your group the teachers for some stupid reason like to not give you your child :( I hope you survive Rachel x

  4. You are like the coolest mum ever. I’d be hopeless on excursion if I had kids. I’d just be searching for the nearest bar.

  5. Yeah I used to hate them too. I used to tell my kids I must REALLY love them if I am willing to go on excursions with their class! Can’t believe those days are now over for me (until I have grandkids I guess …)

  6. So no citrus spray like you would use on a cat to keep them away? Ah, the things you learn :)
