We went to beach for Fathers Day and I wanted to share a couple of tips that helped us out 🙂
First, the night before I prepared our clothes and snacks for the next day because we planned to go right after church.
So, one thing I prepared that thought might help us when we got back was Aloe Vera and this time I froze it. We have these cute frog molds for ice and I put some Aloe Vera in it the night before and let me tell you I got a bit burnt on my back and it felt so good when we got back to rub it on the burnt area.
Next, I brought a small pool that my kids have had for a while so that we can put water in and they can play freely in.
Honestly, by the end of the day it became more of a mud pit, they put sand in it and water but they loved playing in it and kept them away from being in the actually ocean too much.
I’ve got to give credit to my sister for this one. She tied up two bags on her umbrella, one for trash and the other for recycle. So by the time we were done trash wasn’t everywhere and easy to just throw away in a big trash can and take the recycle home. Also, another plastic bag for wet clothes was very helpful.
Next, this is something that is super helpful even with us as adults because everyone knows how annoying the sand can be sometimes when your trying to eat or do something. For babies who still have diapers on its super helpful because sand will get in there private areas and putting baby powder helps to keep it off plus it keeps them feeling soft and smelling good.
Now, one of the most important in my opinion is to bring Family! Going to the beach is scary with toddlers because they easily run off somewhere and get lost or even into the ocean but, it helps a lot to have many eyes to help.
At the end of the day we had a blast at the beach with family and can’t wait to go back.
Let me know if you have any tips and what they are! I’d love to know! 🙂
