When you are babysitting you want to take some things with you because you’re not going to be at your house. Some things to take with you are:
- Your phone/phone charger
- Extra pair of clothes
It’s important to take your phone just in case you have to contact anyone while you are babysitting. Before you leave your house charge your phone, then take it with you when you leave. Also consider taking a phone charger just in case your phone dies when you need it most. If you have a car, buy a car phone charger so you can always have one on the go and it will always be there.
When babysitting take an extra pair of clothes, trust me this can be for many reasons. One reason can be if your clothes get really dirty from an activity you and the kids were doing. You can leave the extra pair of clothes in your car instead of actually taking it into the house unless needed. Another reason is if you have to watch the kids all night until early in the morning, you can change into more comfortable clothes.
Take a purse/wallet if you want to take the kids somewhere to get food, or a snack from a convenient store. Even if you don’t plan on taking the kids anywhere you should always have money on you if an emergency happens. If you don’t have a purse or a wallet, leave money somewhere in your car so you can access it.
These are just somethings that you should take with you when you are going to be babysitting.
