What to Take to the Beach with Kids
For whatever reason squirting water is a lot of fun for kids. While we usually bring our water squirters, we now carry water spray bottles as well (thanks to a clever mom friend of mine). This is a super inexpensive alternative to fancy water pistols (plus I’m not a fan of kids playing with guns, so spray bottles are a fun alternative). We picked ours up for only a few dollars each. Filled with water they make a fantastic toy for the beach. Most water spray bottles are adjustable – spray a lovely mist or blast a spray for fun.
Keep track of the time. While it is possible to tell the time by looking at the location of the sun in the sky, it’s not very practical. A day at the beach can be fun, but too much time in the sun can be exhausting. Pace yourself and know your family’s limits.
A beach towel to sit on, a towel to dry off with and a towel to clean up sandy kids with. You need as many towels as you can carry for a trip to the beach. The plastic bag is perfect for carrying home all those wet swimsuits and sandy towels.
