Summer is here and parents are on a mission for fun things to do and to make their kid’s summer break active, organized and easy. With the kids out of school, it’s important to stay organized. Keeping a packed beach bag for any water adventures makes it easy to get out of the house and into fun! Here are 3 essentials for your beach bag this summer.
Tons of Towels
You can never have too many towels, especially with kids. You need towels to lay on, towels to dry off with and towels to wipe your eyes when sunscreen inevitably gets in them. So, make sure your beach bag is packed with towels. If you’re visiting Daytona Lagoon and forget, don’t worry! We sell plush towels at the ticket counter.
The sun is out and ready to ruin your summer with an unbearable sunburn. Sunscreen is important all summer, even when you aren’t in the water. For the little ones, grab a sunscreen stick to make it easy to put sunscreen on their face. Spray sunscreen is great for kids and easy to get on. The American Academy of Dermatology suggests a minimum of SPF 30 to protect from sunburn and urges people to make sure their sunscreen is water resistant. Keep multiple options in your beach bag this summer with different SPF.
From a fashion standpoint, sunglasses are a cute accessory to add to an outfit. But, this summer essential does more than compliment your face. Sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun’s UV rays, which can cause cataracts, degeneration and more eye problems, according to the National Eye Institute. Make sure you have a pair for you and your little ones ready to go in your beach bag this summer.
