What are you guys putting in the kids' OOT bags? We have nieces and nephews coming, ages range from 1.5-9 and I have no clue what to get for them. Space is also an issue since many toys are too large to bring considering all the other stuff.. Ideashuh.gif Thank you :)

Beach toys! Sand toys are great if you can fit them or pick them up at a Wal-Mart or something while you are there (Cancun has a Wal-Mart, i notice you are going to Aruba, and i have no clue if there is one there) but also consider deflated beach balls, swimming rings, and rafts...they take up hardly any room when deflated and are so fun in the ocean!

You can also consider things like coloring books, flip flops, or even little squirt guns.

I ordered activity books (wedding themed, soooo cute) but we almost have to choose individually due to age differences. That is a great idea regarding inflatables! I have no idea if we will have any time to go shopping in Aruba and it might stress me out not having everything ready. But I also want kids to have fun. Portable games would probably work as well... Water toys are fun but again, space might be an issue.. Any other ideas??

I bought some dollar store items like goggles, water balls that are the size of baseballs but are squishy so you can get them in a suitcase. I purchased skinny tubes of bubbles for $1 at Walmart and they fit in the suitcase really well. Tattoos for girls and boys - they will love playing around with them...you can get a bunch of boy and girl tatoos on oriental trading...I could keep going with the little things that won't take up space :)

At Target for $1 each, I found small sand pails and shovels for all kid bags (ages 2 - 6), & for the girls, cute mini notebooks, Disney princess colored markers & lip balm plus soda flavored lip balm for the boys. At the dollar store, I got coloring/activity books for all & Spiderman crayons for the boys. At Michaels, in the dollar bins, I found animal mini notebooks for the boys. Will finish off with water & snacks we get from the grocery store in Key West. Whew!

I was thinking about just putting a bag with a few pool/beachy gifts in each kid's parent's bag. Instead of making each kid their own whole bag. Just due to lack of packing space. And I know the resort is going to have a ton for them when we get there.

I'm going to make the kids seperate bags so far I have water inflatables, water guns, lip balm, sweets, glow sticks, tattoos. I'm trying to make them geared towards them individually as have various ages travelling with us. Though my son is keeping me on the right track :)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
