July is here and it’s definitely hot hot hot! Our kids want to be out and about: playing in the sand, popping up a tent, or hanging out in the pool. No matter what, you always have to plan ahead and make sure to pack a bag. Be game ready! Here are our 10 items you’d need for a Summer outing with your kiddos!
Sunscreen is one of the most important essentials when taking your kids out in the sun! Their skin needs to be protected from the harmful UV rays just like our skin. Baby and Kids sunscreen are formulated differently than ours so it’s important to find one that’s fragrance-free and one that has mineral-based ingredients zinc oxide. Most baby and kids sunscreens are recommended use for 6 months and older. We love the new Supergoop Sunnyscreen Mineral Lotion!
If you love to wear sunglasses when your out and about, your kid would want one too! Nothing says cool for the Summer like a cool pair of sunglasses. We snagged these fun Spiderman ones at Target!
Because who doesn’t want a cranky child, am I right? It’s always important to bring a snack everywhere you go because they might get hungry during the car ride, in between play, or maybe they're just cranky and snacks will brighten up there mood!
4. SIPPY CUP
Kids usually forget to drink something because they're just having too much fun playing! It’s important during these hot Summer days to stay hydrated so keeping a sippy cup or straw cup in your bag is essential.
Kids need more sun protection than just sunscreen! Keep their heads cool with a hat, we love our Panda trucker hat! It’s a kid favorite too!
You never know when you’re kid might jump in a puddle of dirt or maybe have a little accident while your out and about. Keeping a waterproof pouch will definitely make your life easier!
Yes to wipes! Whether your cleaning up food off there face or something weird off your hands, wipes are crucial to throw in your bag. We love these fragrance free wipes from Hello Bello.
8. DIAPERS + DIAPER BAGS
This one is obviously so crucial to your Summer outing! We also love these disposable diaper bags that hang as a keychain on your bag.
Children always need to be constantly entertained so toys are a must! If you’re going to the beach, we love a good beach bucket and shovel.
10. EXTRA OUTFITS
You’re kids love to get wet and somehow always have tons of dirt or sand on their clothes. Bringing extra outfits is not only smart but also might help your car to be less dirty. We love our Paisley Flutter Sleeve Romper in Citrus for the girls and our Keegan tank and Cole Shorts in Arcade for the boys. Both are so easy to throw on and give major Summer vibes!
