What do with leftovers on hike with kids

Remember that you’ll need to pack out wrappers, baggies and uneaten food. Burying them isn’t a good idea as animals often will dig them up, leaving that section of the wood littered with trash. This is an excellent opportunity to teach kids the value of hiking out with what they hiked in.
