Every summer we head to the beach, & I find great new things to bring & do with our children.
My faves are:
1.) Melissa & Doug sand toys, they have such fun varieties for girls & boys.
2.) Rubber Ducky Sunscreen, the best of the best, & the ONLY sunscreen that I have found that is waterproof for 8 hours. I have been using this product for over 7 years! (Solrx were the pioneers of putting good ingredients in their sunscreen!)
3.) California Baby Sunscreen stick I love for under the eyes, nose, & shoulders. It works as a barrier for those areas that get the most sun!
4.) Melissa & Doug’s Sunny patch water bottle. I fill it with mostly ice cubes & water. I use this to cool off the kids when it is hot, or for when the saltwater burns their eyes!
5.) Kites are so much fun @ the beach. My fave is made by Manhattan Kids, which is on a stick, so there are no tears with tangled strings!
6.) Coastal Solutions Jellyfish Squish is a great spray to have if our child is stung by a jelly fish. Spray the area & use a credit card to break the stingers away!
7.) A large fishing net is so much fun for the kids to use at the beach or the bay. Watching them catch minnows, or other sea life is priceless!
8.) The most durable shovel is made by the company Toysmith. We buy them in the same color, so no one fights over a different color!
9.) Sport Brella umbrella is my fave, because it can be used at the beach, picnics or sporting events!
10.) Crayola washable paints & paintbrushes are great for painting shells or rocks @ the beach! As early as 2, your child will love this craft at the beach!
11.) I always keep a Sharpie marker in my beach bag, to label all our sand toys, items, waters & snacks to prevent issues.
12.) Me4Kidz mini first aide kits are a must in your beach bag! You never know when a boo boo will happen!
13.) Pre packaged individual snacks are a must! They may be more expensive, but there is nothing worse then a soggy snack when a large bag is opened @ the beach all day!
14.) Change of clothes for the car is perfect to prevent shivers with the AC, a rash, or a wet car/booster seat!
15.) The Sand Off Towel is filled with powder for easy removal for sandy feet!
16.) Smart Water! Freeze a few bottles, & bring lots of water! Dehydration is not fun, & this water has no sugar, just electrolytes which is perfect!
17.) Frozen fruit is a perfect snack for the beach! I Slice watermelon, cantaloupe, & grapes, then freeze them the night before. ~Delish!
18.) XL beach blanket is perfect for the entire family! Lands End at Sears & KMart sell them.
19.) Beach chairs with cup holders prevent spills & tears. BJ’s Costco, & Target have great selections. Adult size chairs are perfect for 2 children to fit on!
20.) Munchkin Safety Duck Tub or small pools are perfect for babies & toddlers to cool off!
