What to Pack a Toddler for Camping!

Every year our family takes a camping trip. Last year our son was just a baby and didn't need as much as he does now. This was our first time camping with a toddler and like always, I wanted to be prepared! This is a packing list of things I thought we would need during our 3 day trip, strictly for my toddler.

Almost everywhere I go, I always have a general medicine/first aid kit with me packed in a small wet bag. For the most part it contains: Boogie Wipes, Diaper/First aid cream, thermometer, Nasal Aspirator, Children's Tylenoand Band-Aids (not pictured)
 
With some extras added for camping, such as: Bug Spray, Sunscreen, Anti Itch gel (for bug bites) 
 
 
Clothing:
Based on how the weather will be, depends on what to pack. For our trip, we packed for cold weather. My toddler's bag contained:
2 Pairs of Jeans, 2 pairs of Sweat Pants, 3 Long Sleeve Onesie's, 4 Long Sleeve Shirts, 3 Pairs of Fleece PJs, 3 Pairs of Socks, 2 Jackets, 1 Light Jacket, 2 Pairs of Play Shoes, 2 Hats, Diapers (or Undies) Wipes, Two Wet Bags (for dirty clothing)
 
Toys:
These were a must for us.
Dump Truck, Shovel & Pail, a Few Small Cars and Trucks, Bubbles and a Kid Flash Light.
We also made a scavenger hunt game to bring with us.
 
Some Other Things I Recommend:
These I did Not Bring but are suggestions
.
Stroller: Strollers can take up a lot of space in your car but if you plan to take long hikes or activities, may be good to bring along if your toddler gets tired.
Baby Carrier: Another option to bring along rather than a stroller.
Kid Play Tent: a small fold down or pop up tent for your toddler to play in.
Kid Chair: So they have their own chair to sit in.
