10 Beach Bag Must Haves For Busy Moms
Schools are letting out and that means summer break! Most parents take their kids to the pool or beach to let them play in the warm water and burn off some energy! If you are needing some help in knowing what to put in your beach bag then let me help with my Beach Bag Must-Haves for Busy Moms.
Below I have compiled a list of items that are perfect to toss in your beach bag for busy moms! Getting out of the house is great for the kids but sometimes stressful for the mom. You have to make sure everything is packed and ready, and nothing gets left behind!
Top Items to Have in Your Beach Bag
Sunscreen: Make sure you have packed up some sunscreen for the whole family. It should be applied around 30 minutes before heading out, and then re-apply after being in the water. I aim for doing this around every hour or so. Protecting your child’s skin as well as yours is important! You can also include bug spray, just in case you run into a swarm of mosquitoes.
Drinks and Snacks: Playing in the water and sun can really wear you out. Not to mention dehydrate you if you don’t stay up on fluids. Make sure to pack cold waters and a few snacks that won’t melt in the sun. Or pack a cooler to keep your snacks and drinks cold.
Baby Powder: Rub baby powder on your feet and legs when you go to leave the beach, it will remove the sand easily from our skin! You can buy a travel size, that won’t take up much room in the bag!
Wet Wipes: Make sure to have some wet hand wipes. They are a great way to clean your child’s hands if they get them dirty!
SPF Lip Balm: Aim for a lip balm that has an SPF of 15 or higher. Lips need to be protected as well, and having a lip balm with SPF will save the day.
Towels and A Cover-up for Mom: Make sure to pack towels for the whole family, so they can dry off and have a place to sit when they aren’t in the water. Let’s be honest, most moms want a cover-up of some kind on! This LOLL poncho towel, is like a two in one. You can wear it to and from the beach, and while you are there, and use it to dry off after taking a dip in the water! The unique design is very flattering and helps hide those areas you don’t want to be seen! Allows you to change under it without flashing anyone, and is comfy! It is a great item for any mom looking for a cover-up!
Beach Hat: If you are not planning on going in the water much, you might want to pack a beach hat. It is a great way to add a little shade, and add some fashion to your look! Floppy hats help keep the sun off your face and look adorable on the beach.
Reading Material: If you are wanting to just relax, maybe pack a good book or an electronic reading device like a Nook or Kindle. It is a great way for you to enjoy some peaceful time for yourself while you watch over your kids playing.
Brush: Nothing is worse than getting out of the water and having your hair in knots. Remember to toss in a brush to comb through everyone’s hair.
First Aid Kit: You can buy smaller sized first aid kits, and these are great to have on hand, even if you leave in the car. You never know when the next cut or scrape will happen!
