We are about to go on a big trip with our family and I definitely have some items that I can’t do without when I go to the beach with three kids! I wanted to tell you about¬†My 10 Favorite Beach Items so that you can have a great beach vacation with your family, too! I am really trying to minimize the amount of items I take with us this time so that we have more room in the car, so this list is really my personal list of essentials :)
With kids, you can really never have too many high quality beach towels! They jump in the ocean, dry off, then the pool, dry off, rinse, repeat. Soon enough, you are out of dry towels! These Big One Beach Towels are the BEST Quality and you can actually get them for the best price I have seen today-only $6.79!
I LOVE this thing! These big beach mats are such a huge help to really have a designated picnic area for the family and it’s a lot better than spreading out a bunch of towels! I put our under our beach tent and we really have a great set up :)
These make life a LOT easier! I bought these Soda Can Straw & Lid Toppers because you eliminate the messy drips with cans which is better for my kiddos. I also love that you can seal them off and then put the straw topper on and save it for later!
I love the beach, but I do not love sand all over everything when you get back inside. That’s why I bought one of these Mesh Beach Bags! The mesh is perfect for shaking out sand before you get inside which means no tracking in more sand than you already do :)
As a mom, there is a lot going from the beach back inside to take kids to potty! I buy these coverups so that I can throw them on and run around with the crazy kids :)¬†They come in¬†7 different color all for under $10 shipped¬†and they are great for walking to and from the beach!
We end up taking SO MUCH stuff down to the beach with 3 kids, so this Beach Wagon is one of my favorites without a doubt. I can put in the towels, toys, floaties, food, and everything all at once to avoid making multiple trips.
You gotta build a sand castle at the beach! However, I do not want to lug a million different toys down, so we get just ONE set for everyone. This Kare & Kind 17 Piece Set has everything you need: shovels, sand castle molds, and funny shapes. It has 5 star reviews, so it’s a good one :)
I never go without the Hooded Towels for my youngest! It just makes it so much faster to get him all dry and warm :)
It is SO IMPORTANT to make sure that you don’t get too much sun and that is why I highly recommend a tent or a beach shade. These Coleman Beach Shades are as low as $38.24 in some colors which is a GREAT price on them!
You have to have plenty of water and drinks when you hit the beach! I always take a big cooler tote like this Rachael Ray Jumbo Cooler Thermal Tote! I haven’t seen it this cheap-only $17.21 and it has awesome reviews, too :)
If you have anything that you MUST HAVE at the beach, let us know!
