Mama OWL Blog: Mark Warner Holiday Childcare Essentials

Mark Warner Holiday Childcare Essentials

Thursday, 30 July 2015

On our recent visit to San Lucianu Beach Resort in Corsica with Mark Warner the children got to enjoy their holiday without boring Mum & Dad hanging about making them look uncool, by hanging out with the brilliant & infinitely more fun young ladies and gents at the Kidz, Junior & Minis Clubs. The Childcare facilities at Mark Warner resorts are second to none (just ask POD) and the kids were spoiled for choice with the daily games, activities and watersports that were on offer throughout our stay.

But what do you need to provide for them?

We took the children's Trunki PaddlePaks on the plane for all of their essential travel bits & bobs to keep them busy quiet happy on the flight. We then used these bags (that had already been labelled with the children's names using our fab Stamptastic labelling kit as they use them for their swimming lessons at home) to send along with them when they went off to have fun with their friends at club. In their bags we packed:

  • Sun Hat (a baseball cap or similar)
  • Sun Cream (we also applied this before they left)
  • T-Shirt (that covers their shoulders, a UV/Rash Vest is ideal)
  • Shorts
  • Swimwear
  • Towel
  • Closed-toe Shoes
  • Bottle of water

You also need to make sure that all of your items are labelled, to help the staff keep everything in check so it's best to prepare it all before you leave. Often we would put their swimwear on under their shorts & t-shirt (or just a t-shirt with swimming shorts for the boys) but this way they all had sufficient clothing to change into as they often ended up very wet with all of the swimming and watersports (and water fights!) so don't forget their towel! Our children wore their clog/croc style shoes the majority of the time although they did also have trainers for field sports and times that they would be running around playing games on the grassy area, or on the courts playing tennis - also handy if you plan to take them out cycling. As mine were constantly in and out of the swimming pool, personally I would recommend taking them a pair of goggles too.

We shared this fantastic holiday at San Lucianu in Corsica with lots of other lovely bloggers and their families, where lifelong friendships were forged. To read all about their experiences and thoughts on San Lu please do visit their blogs, listed below.
