With much trial and error and advice from friends, I’ve put together a list of items and tips that are great when packing a beach or pool bag this summer!
PACK THE BASICS
- swimming suits
- change of clothing
- swim diapers for tiny ones
- water/sand toys
Next, here are some great tips that will make your trips to the beach more enjoyable!
Remember to bring a wet bag or plastic bag to bring home wet swimsuits in. These are great when you don’t have time to let the sun dry your items!
When we go to the beach it’s a given that sand gets EVERYWHERE!
Did you know that baby powder is magical when removing sand from your body? Sprinkle the baby powder on the area with sand and it will wipe right off!
FIRST AID KIT
Almost every time we head out to the beach one of the kids (or myself) is bound to get a little cut or “owie”! So many times I wished had one of this mini first aid kits in my bag. So through trial and error this is a beach bag staple!
Bring some plastic bags to put little snacks in. We end up using these for little collections the kids find such as; seashells, rocks, sea glass, etc.
KEEP YOUR BAG PACKED!
This is probably my favorite tip to share. Keep all of your beach items in the beach bag all summer long so you can just grab and go! Clean beach towels and dirty items, of course, and place them back into your bag. You’ll know where everything is and can grab it in a pinch for pool time or beach time fun!
