Beach Day Essentials Checklist


Planning a beach day with your kids takes as much effort as planning a two week getaway without your kids. Planning a spontaneous beach day will definitely be a disaster since whatever you think you packed will not be enough when you are on the beach. Solution? Coming up with an all-inclusive checklist for the beach day. If you are doing the beach day for the first time with your new additions to the family, until you get used to the beach day routine, this checklist should come in handy.

Pop up tent is a must

If you have kids who are really small, investing in a pop up tent or a foldable shelter is a quite practical idea. These come in a functional pack with a zipper that is extremely ergonomic. This will eventually come in handy if your babies need some shade to take a nap after a few hours on the beach. No one actually hogs around huge beach umbrellas anymore and therefore this will be a great addition to the checklist.

Other minor stuff

Minor stuff can easily be forgotten and they can also be vital to boost the fun on the beach. Make sure you pack the swim suits for the kids and make sure you pack other important things the likes of kid’s toys, a towelling bathrobe for each kid, toys to play with and even an extra pair of swimsuits for the kids.

Investing in a hooded towel is also great idea if you have very young kids. This way they won’t have to go around in a towel or eat in their wet swimsuits once they have come out of the water.

Bring shopping bags

Yes, the plastic bags pose a great threat for the environment. However, when you are packing all the wet undies, the swimsuits and other accidentally dampened clothes, the plastic bags can come in handy as well. Plus you cannot dispose of the used diaper just Willy nilly around the beach too? If the garbage disposal is too far away and you do not want to leave your damaging trails around the beach, you can bring in some plastic bags.

Sleepy time buddies

There is nothing wrong with spending the entire day on the beach with your family. This however means you will have to take care of the short and peaceful nap times of your babies. You can bring a soft blanket, preferably something they love and some soft toy as well. This will put things in perspective when they are taking a break from all the running around on the beach.
