It is almost officially summer! We have already been to the beach a few times but need to refresh some of our beachy stuff. The kids love the beach and Emmaleigh especially loves to pick out bathing suits, toys, and all the goodies before we go.
Here is a roundup of her favorite beachy things this year.
Bathing Suits. A good fitting bathing suit is a must! Em loves to run around and she plays rough at the beach, alot of swimming and jumping around, so her bathing suit has to fit good.
A good pair of sunglasses. Emmaleigh has a decent collection of sunglasses and she is always getting more. These are a few she has that she wears more than other.
Smelling good sunscreen. Of course sunscreen is mainly used to keep her skin safe from the sun but she likes hers to smell good. She loves to smell like summer.
Googles. There are so many creatures out there in the great big ocean and the best way to see them is with a good pair of goggles. I used to just grab her a bunch of pairs from dollar stores because they would get left behind often but she has grown into taking care of the ones she has and likes to have a good pair that fits well and works as supposed to.
Beach toys. Even if we are just heading out for a little while we always have a bag full of toys ready to go. Along with basic toys are floaties or different sizes and shapes for each of the kids. They can get a little cumbersome so we tend to switch them out with each beach trip.
Big blankets. We used to take extra large beach towels to the beach, or grab whatever sheets were in the closet but I found an Indian Tapestry on Amazon and that's about all we use now. Easy to store, easy to shake sand off, and can be used to sit on and to dry off with.
