Last post I decided that I would branch out my packing light lists and make a kids version as well. I wasn’t going to do outfit options for them but then I thought that the list kind of looked like a mishmash of clothes so I wanted to give an example of how my daughter would wear these pieces. This will  give a better idea to how versatile this list is. The clothes I picked would be suitable from now until spring with a few changes if the temperatures were  got colder or snowy. Maybe add a pair of rain boots and some mittens. Aside from that it is very versatile for the weather with the ability to build layers. If there is a situation were you made need to dressing up, then wearing the blazer over the dress will work. I built 12 example outfits but there is definitely room to make more.

Travel to me means a lot of walking. I am eager to absorb culture and history so I am willing to walk as much as is necessary to do so. Shoes that are comfortable to walk in are a must. Especially for children who aren’t used to walking and may tire easily. My older daughter is a walker like me and even though they aren’t the most comfortable shoes she lives in her Converse and Doc Marten’s. If I suggested she bring a different pair she would probably politely decline ;)

There are lots of things to do in Amsterdam with kids. Some of the ones that looked most fun were:

  • Boat tours because Amsterdam is a canal city. How better to explore it than by taking boats through the canals.
  • The Tropenmuseum
  • Nemo museum (no, not the clownfish Nemo, it’s a Science museum)
  • Rent a Bakfiets for use with my smaller kid.
  • The Artis Royal Zoo. It is not just a zoo but has an aquarium and planetarium. There is also a Zoological Museum, playgrounds, and you can walk among the animals in the petting zoo portion.
  • AmstelPark has a wide variety of things for kids and families to do during varying seasons.
  • There are speeltuins (playgrounds) all over the city. These aren’t just regular playgrounds though, some of these are really, really cool.

These are just a few of the many things you can do with children in Amsterdam. Do you have any suggestions for other families that may be visiting there?

  1. Sara, if you ever get the chance to take your kids to the Efteling (efteling.com), I highly recommend it. It’s one of the best amusements parks I’ve ever visited. I went with my colleagues from Philips, many of whom fondly remember going there as children themselves. Cheers, Ardith

    • That looks incredible! My kids would lose their minds over it. See, it always pays to ask. I never would have heard of it if I didn’t. Thank you for the suggestion.
