Well, the warm weather has officially arrived! Here’s what you need in your bag to tackle the summer days with lots of fun.
Now that it has, my family and I try to spend as much time outside as we can. Whether it’s the pool or beach, out on the boat or simply having some old school fun running through the sprinklers, it wouldn’t be summer without water.
So, with that in mind, I’m going to show you guys the Yarn family’s summertime stockpile. These are the items we always make sure to have on hand this time of year.
Especially living in the Sunshine State I always make sure to have several methods for protecting the whole family from the sun’s harsh rays. Broad spectrum sunscreen is a given, but don’t forget about items like hats and sunglasses. And for the kids, these UPF swim shirts will keep them covered and protected all day!
Speaking of the kids, now is the perfect time to stock up on some reliable swim pants. When Jack was still in diapers we went through so many of these Huggies Little Swimmers disposable swim pants. Now that Charlie is part of our family, it was a no-brainer to use these again. These swim pants are ideal for any time your little one is playing in the water. Not just at the pool, we even use them when we are running through sprinklers in the backyard. And new this year, the swim pants feature characters from the summer’s new Finding Dory movie, so cute!
Here’s what makes them the number one choice of moms, Huggies Little Swimmers swim pants are made of a unique absorbent material that won’t swell in the water. They have extra-protective leak-guards to lock in the mess. Plus, they have easy-open sides to make changing a breeze. They’re stretchy, too which makes for a great fit in and out of the water.
Wipes for all of those messes
The next item you’ll definitely need this summer, plenty of wipes! My go-to are these Huggies Natural Care Wipes. I rely on these for so much. They have strong and absorbent Triple Clean Layers which are great for cleaning faces, fingers, and sand from between your toes during your days at the beach. Plus this is Huggies’ simplest formula ever, made of 99 percent water, for a gentle clean perfect for Charlie’s delicate skin.
And the last must have this time of year, is entertainment. The pool, surf, and sand are even more fun with some toys so the kids can let their imagination run free! I keep shovels, buckets, sand molds, and a few plastic cups all together in a mesh bag like this one. So anytime the urge to get outside hits us, I can grab it and go!
Floaties are essentials in my family. I’m not sure if you’ve seen the ones that have been ‘floating’ around on the internet, but people are getting creative. Some of the most fun ones that you can get with your little one are a swan, a donut, a flamingo and a popsicle.
That’s a look at my summertime stockpile, as long as I’ve got these items I know we’re in for a great day spent splashing around, and you will be, too!
