I love a good summer beach day trip just as much as the next person. But when traveling with kids (especially young ones), there are things that we have to pack and few things that we may not think of, that are a definite must!
As parents, it’s easy to turn any simple trip into a PACK ALL THE THINGS as we are gathering up our kid’s items. But it doesn’t have to be. If you are a pro (read procrastinator) at last minute packing like I am, then I have a few tips on how to make things less stressful, while making sure you have all of your bases covered!
Of course, there are few basics that everyone should carry with them to the beach:
- Beach Tote
- Beach towels
- Beach chairs
- Cooler with wheels
- Smaller portable cooler
- Water bottles for everyone
- Beach Cart/portable wheels
- Beach toys
- Swim goggles
- waterproof sunscreen
- Lip balm/protector
- Insect repellent
- Hand sanitizer
But there are also a few items that you may not think of as well as a few hacks for common items that you may bring to the beach as well.
You are probably thinking that this is nuts. But what better place to put sandy, wet clothing? If you are 100% against plastic bags, then reusable shopping bags or paper bags work just as well.
You remember the tiny handheld brooms and dustpans. This comes in handy especially when you are preparing to get in the car to help get rid of any excess sand. A soft broom will allow you to easily wipe the sand off your kid’s bodies.
Forget the individual beach towels
One of our favorite things to use is an old duvet cover. This is a lot easier than spreading individual towels for each of the kids on the ground. This way the towels are still sand free when it’s time to dry them off. There’s nothing worse than sand covered towels and wet kids.
Yes, paper towels.
Brawny® Tear-A-Square™ is absolutely perfect beach item, that we as parents don’t always think about. Wet wipes are a great accessory for trips but a lot of times it can end up in more of a mess being made. Brawny® Paper Towels can handle the toughest messes and everyday cleanup.
When using for cleaning up dirty hands and feet at the beach, it allows the sand to be easily wiped off, whether it’s wet or dry. Brawny Tear-A-Square 2-ply is a premium paper towel that has a unique quarter sheet size option with 256 quarter sheets per roll. It provides a smaller sheet size option for your smaller tasks so that your roll can last longer.
This means it’s perfect for doing this
And of course, this
The quarter sheet size paper towels for small spills and quick clean-ups. When you are on the beach, it’s also the perfect place for snacks! And even for building sandcastles!
