Kid Friendly Bike-Packing Tips!

Hey all! 

I am taking my 6 year old on an easy cruiser/mostly down hill two day bike packing trip next week. This is our last adventure before school starts the following week! 

Any bike packing w/ kiddos tips out there to keep it fun and exciting for her?  She is a ripper on her bike, but has never had to carry a backpack on her bike before. It is a super easy river route, and I plan on hauling 99% of our gear in a trailer.....but want her to get the full experience without it being a suffer fest.  

I would love to hear from some REI members out there that have tried this activity with thier kiddos!
